BACKGROUND Pentraxins are a family of plasma proteins characterized by their pentameric assembly and calcium-dependent ligand binding. The recent determination of the crystal structure for a member of this family, human serum amyloid P component (SAP), provides a basis for the comparative analysis of the pentraxin family. RESULTS We have compared the sequences, tertiary structures and quaternary arrangements of SAP with human C-reactive protein (CRP), Syrian hamster SAP (HSAP) and Limulus… CONTINUE READING
