As Vitamin K Is A Cofactor For The Carboxylation Of Glutamate Residues On The N-terminal Regions Of Vitamin K-dependent Clotting Factors, This Limits The Gamma-carboxylation And Subsequent Activation Of The Vitamin K-dependent Coagulant Proteins. The Synthesis Of Vitamin K-dependent Coagulation Factors II, VII, IX, And X And Anticoagulant Proteins C And S Is Inhibited Resulting In Decreased Prothrombin Levels And A Decrease In The Amount Of Thrombin Generated And Bound To Fibrin. This Reduces The Thrombogenicity Of Clots.
