Does vitamin K serves as a(n) inhibitor, coenzyme, antagonist or carrier to various enzymes involved in the coagulation of blood?
Vitamin K is a fat-soluble organic molecule that is important in the clotting process. It can therefore be categorized as a carrier to various enzymes involved in the coagulation of blood.
Vitamin K is very important in the clotting process because it signals the liver to synthesize important proteins and protein factors for the different pathways that are involved. Without sufficient Vitamin K, the clotting system is heavily affected and the healing process of the injured tissue area can be slowed or halted.
