Summaries for Protein C Deficiency

NIH Rare Diseases : 53 Protein C deficiency is a disorder that increases a person's risk to develop abnormal blood clots due to a deficiency of the Protein C, a protein in the body that prevents blood clotting. It may be inherited or acquired. Inherited deficiency of protein C can lead to familial thrombophilia (increased tendency toward thrombosis). It is caused by mutations in the PROC gene, and in most cases is transmitted in an autosomal dominant way; a few people inherit an abnormal allele from both parents and may have a more severe disease (please see autosomal recessive protein C deficiency) because they have very low levels of active protein C. Acquired protein C deficiency may be caused by large blood clots, liver disease, disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), infection (sepsis), vitamin K deficiency, use of warfarin or certain types of chemotherapy. While most people with protein C deficiency do not have problems, some are at risk for a type of clot called deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which can travel through the bloodstream and become stuck in the lung, causing pulmonary embolism. Also, abnormal bleeding can occur in various parts of the body causing purple patches on the skin. Treatment depend on the symptoms severity. Most people do not need any treatment. However, in situations of clot risk such as pregnancy, surgery or trauma, prevention treatment may be indicated.

MalaCards based summary : Protein C Deficiency, also known as hereditary thrombophilia due to protein c deficiency, is related to budd-chiari syndrome and purpura fulminans. An important gene associated with Protein C Deficiency is PROC (Protein C, Inactivator Of Coagulation Factors Va And VIIIa), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Response to elevated platelet cytosolic Ca2+ and Collagen chain trimerization. The drugs Protein C and Anticoagulants have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include liver, skin and lung, and related phenotypes are cardiovascular system and homeostasis/metabolism

Genetics Home Reference : 25 Protein C deficiency is a disorder that increases the risk of developing abnormal blood clots; the condition can be mild or severe.
