Coagulation factor X is a vitamin K-dependent protein composed of discrete domains or modules. A proteolytically modified derivative of factor X that lacks the NH2-terminal gamma-carboxyglutamic acid (Gla)-containing region retains one Ca2+ binding site. To localize this Gla-independent Ca2+ binding site and to facilitate future studies aimed at elucidating(More)
Blood coagulation factor X is composed of discrete domains, two of which are homologous to the epidermal growth factor (EGF). The N-terminal EGF like domain in factor X (fX-EGFN), residues 45-86 of the intact protein, contains a beta-hydroxylated aspartic acid and has one Ca2(+)-binding site. Using 2D NMR techniques, we have made a full assignment of the(More)
BACKGROUND Depression is the most common mental health problem among adolescents. Despite policy guidance and governmental support to develop usable mental health services, there is still a lack of easily accessible and modern interventions available for adolescents in Finland's majority official language. OBJECTIVE Our objective was to develop a(More)
The three-dimensional structure of a 42-residue fragment containing the N-terminal EGF-like module of blood coagulation factor X was determined by means of 2D NMR spectroscopy and computer simulation. The spectroscopic data consisted of 370 NOE distances and 27 dihedral angle constraints. These were used to generate peptide conformations by molecular(More)
