The two C-terminal domains, TN23 (residues 17-181), of human recombinant tetranectin, a plasminogen kringle 4 binding C-type lectin, have been crystallized in two different space groups. Using PEG 8000 as precipitant and at a pH of 8.5, crystals belonging to the monoclinic space group C2 are obtained, with unit-cell parameters a = 160.4, b = 44.7, c = 107.5 A, beta = 127.6 degrees. Using sodium formate as precipitant and at a pH of 5.0, TN23 crystallizes in a rhombohedral space group, with unit…

Emerging Groups of C-Type Lectins

By binding to HA, layilin may facilitate cell migration by mediating early interactions between spreading cells and the extracellular matrix (ECM).

Aberrant tetranectin expression in human breast carcinomas as a predictor of survival

Aims: Tetranectin (TN), a plasminogen kringle 4 binding protein, is thought to play a prominent role in the regulation of proteolytic processes via binding to plasminogen. The aim of this study was

Purification and characterization of a novel, oligomeric, plasminogen kringle 4 binding protein from human plasma: tetranectin.

A tetrameric protein composed of four subunits, that is dissociated by 1% sodium dodecyl sulphate, is suggested to be a novel plasma protein tentatively called 'tetranectin'.

Structure of a C-type mannose-binding protein complexed with an oligosaccharide

The crystal structure at 1.7 Å resolution of the carbohydrate-recognition domain of rat mannose-binding protein complexed with an oligomannose asparaginyl-oligosaccharide reveals that Ca2+ forms coordination bonds with the carbohydrate ligand.

A potential role for tetranectin in mineralization during osteogenesis

A potential role for tetranectin as a bone matrix protein expressed in time and space coincident with mineralization in vivo and in vitro is established.

TETRANECTIN AND PLASMIN/PLASMINOGEN ARE SIMILARLY DISTRIBUTED AT THE INVASIVE FRONT OF CUTANEOUS MELANOMA LESIONS

Results suggest a coordinated role for tetranectin and plasminogen at the invasive front of melanomas, which may facilitate the migration of tumour cells.
