The complete amino acid sequence of the B chain derived from Tachypleus tridentatus coagulogen was determined. It consisted of a total of 129 amino acid residues with a NH2-terminal glycine and COOH-terminal phenylalanine. Sequence studies of the whole B chain and the fragments obtained from the digests with trypsin, alpha-chymotrypsin, thermolysin and Staphylococcal protease V8 showed the following sequence: (sequence; see text) These structural studies of the B chain and the previously… CONTINUE READING
