Factor V (pronounced factor five) is a protein of the coagulation
system, rarely referred to as proaccelerin or labile factor. In contrast to most other coagulation factors, it is not enzymatically active but functions as a
cofactor. Deficiency leads to predisposition for hemorrhage, while some mutations (most notably factor V Leiden) predispose for thrombosis.” (Wikipedia). (Garrison & Morton, 912.5).
