What is Trigger?
Trigger is an electronic newsletter for researchers working on the biology
of Tissue Factor, Factor VII and Tissue Factor Pathway Inhibitor (TFPI).
This free newsletter, edited by Jim Morrissey
Neuenschwander, is distributed twice monthly via e-mail. Its purpose
is to share information among researchers who are investigating how the
blood clotting system is controlled.
We call our newsletter "Trigger" because Tissue Factor and
Factor VII are the proteins that trigger the blood clotting system in
and most thrombotic
diseases. You can find out how Trigger works and how to subscribe
to it using the links at the left.
Trigger issues are also available by RSS feed or blog (although the e-mailed version occasionally contains some information not included in the RSS or blog versions).
What other information is here?
These web pages contain information for biomedical researchers on the
biology of Tissue Factor, Factor VII and TFPI. This includes summaries
of the properties of these proteins (with links to database entries for
their protein sequences, gene sequences, mutations, and three-dimensional
structures). It also includes protocols and sources of reagents for experimenters
working in this field.
