We have determined the structure of wild-type IP-10 from three crystal forms. The crystals provide eight separate models of the IP-10 chain, all differing substantially from a monomeric IP-10 variant examined previously by NMR spectroscopy. In each crystal form, IP-10 chains form conventional beta sheet dimers, which, in turn, form a distinct tetrameric assembly. The M form tetramer is reminiscent of platelet factor 4, whereas the T and H forms feature a novel twelve-stranded beta sheet… CONTINUE READING
