Mechanism of action

  • Inhibition of the synthesis of vitamin K prevents gamma carboxylation of glutamic acid residues near the N-terminals of the vitamin K-dependent clotting factors, including factor II, VII, IX, and X and anticoagulant proteins C and S.
  • This prevents formation of the clotting factors and thus thrombin formation.

Half life

Compared to other coumarin derivatives, acenocoumarol has a short half-life.
