TFPI2 (Tissue Factor Pathway Inhibitor 2): TFPI2, a critical component of the coagulation cascade, acts as a potent inhibitor of the tissue factor (TF)-mediated blood coagulation pathway. It plays a significant role in maintaining hemostatic balance by preventing excessive thrombosis and modulating fibrinolysis. Located in the extracellular matrix (ECM), TFPI2 is involved in various physiological processes beyond coagulation, including cell migration, proliferation, and angiogenesis, contributing to tissue repair and remodeling. The aberrant expression of TFPI2 has been associated with numerous pathological conditions, including cancer, where it may act as a tumor suppressor gene. Its downregulation in certain cancers has been linked to increased tumor growth, invasion, and metastasis, suggesting its role in tumor suppression and its potential as a biomarker for cancer diagnosis and prognosis. The regulation of TFPI2 activity is considered a promising therapeutic target in coagulation disorders, cancer, and other diseases where its pathophysiological roles are significant.
