Regardless of the specific cause of DIC, the results are a malfunction of thrombin (an enzyme) and prothrombin (a glycoprotein), which activate the fibrinolytic system, releasing clotting factors in the blood.
It is known that different breeds of cats have different levels of the glycoprotein Fel D 1, the allergen that causes cat allergies in people.
Hypoprothrombinemia is an inherited or acquired deficiency in prothrombin, or factor II, a glycoprotein formed and stored in the liver.
These cats have a different version of the allergen-causing glycoprotein that causes an allergic reaction in most allergy sufferers.
The source of cat allergies in humans is in a minuscule glycoprotein called Fel D1.
