Vitamin K is a cofactor in the post-ribosomal synthesis of clotting factors including factor II (prothrombin), VII (proconvertin), IX (plasma thromboplastin component) and X (Stuart factor), as well as of proteins C and S that are involved in the production and inhibition of thrombin.
Vitamin K hypovitaminosis results in hypoprothrombinemia, which in turn leads to prolonged bleedings, large haematomata and the development of severe haemorrhagic anemia and haemolytic jaundice.
Menadione (synthetic vitamin K3 ) is absorbed by diffusion in the distal portions of the small intestine and colon, and metabolized to the diol (hydroquinone) form and excreted as glucuronide and sulphate conjugates.
