Factor XII is a component in the coagulation cascade. It is a serum glycoprotein that participates in the
initiation of blood coagulation, fibrinolysis, and the generation of bradykinin and angiotensin. Prekallikrein
is cleaved by factor XII to form kallikrein, which then cleaves factor XII to a-factor XIIa, which in turn
activates factor XI to factor XIa.
