This is a test to identify resistance of factor V to activated protein C. Protein C (see p. 389), in the presence of its cofactors thrombomodulin and thrombin, is enzymatically cleaved to its active form, activated protein C. APC is an important natural anticoagulant (to balance coagulation) that functions by inactivating the critical coagulation factors fVa and fVIIIa.
