1. The protein concentration dependence observed in the calcium binding to fragment 1 indicates that calcium-mediated dimerization is responsible for the cooperative calcium binding behavior usually observed. "Unusual" fragment 1, which exhibits negative cooperativity (the type of binding behavior expected for ions interacting with a charged protein) at(More)
Sedimentation equilibrium studies have demonstrated that prothrombin fragment 1 from either human or bovine plasma reversibly dimerizes in the absence of Ca2+ with an equilibrium constant of 1,000 M-1. In the presence of 10 mM Ca2+ this association constant increased to 10,000 M-1. A model for preferential binding of Ca2+ to the pre-existing dimer has been(More)
