The FII c.1787G>A (prothrombin Belgrade) is a novel prothrombotic mutation which leads to impaired inhibition of thrombin by antithrombin (antithrombin resistance). So far, the mechanism of this variant has not been fully elucidated. To investigate the effect of FII c.1787G>A mutation on the prothrombin gene expression, its functional analysis was performed in vitro. By Real-Time PCR, expression levels of FII gene variants were evaluated in Cos-7 cells transiently transfected with c.1787G (wild-type) and c.1787A prothrombin expression vectors, with no differences observed. The relative quantification of prothrombin protein amounts was accomplished by Western blot analysis, also with no differences observed. Therefore, the mechanism of FII c.1787G>A mutation does not alter prothrombin expression profile.
