Zhang et al. demonstrate that TMEM173 serves as a driver of immunocoagulation in lethal infection. Inhibition of the TMEM173 pathway can correct disseminated intravascular coagulation, prevent multiple organ failure, and improve animal survival in murine sepsis models, thereby revealing a potential therapeutic target for sepsis and septic shock.
