Is factor X also called thromboplastin?[edit]

In the introduction of the article, one of the synonyms for factor X listed include thromboplastin. Is this correct? In the article for tissue factor, thromboplastin is also listed as one of the synonyms. The article for thromboplastin mentions an association with tissue factor; however, it doesn't include factor X. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Devanshuv (talkcontribs) 20:16, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

  • I agree with you. To my knowledge, the word 'thromboplastin' is not well-defined. Thromboplastin may include Factor X, but must include other factors as well. From this view point, the article was misleading. I removed it.--Francesco Nagoya (talk) 07:09, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
