Coagulation factor II (thrombin) receptor, also known as protease activated receptor 1 (PAR1), is a human protein encoded by the F2R gene.

PAR1 is a 7-transmembrane receptor involved in the regulation of thrombotic response. Proteolytic cleavage leads to the activation of the receptor. PAR1 is a G-protein coupled receptor.[1]



Several selective antagonists for the PAR1 receptor have been developed, for use as anti-clotting agents for the treatment of heart disease.
