Characterization of the functional defect in factor IX Alabama. Evidence for a conformational change due to high affinity calcium binding in the first epidermal growth factor domain.

Abstract

Factor IX Alabama is a factor IX variant in which a glycine has been substituted for Asp47 in the first epidermal growth factor (EGF) domain. The structural defect in factor IX Alabama results in a molecule with 10% of normal coagulant activity. The interactions of immunoaffinity-purified factor IX Alabama with its activator, cofactors, and substrate have… (More)
