Extended and flexible domain solution structure of the extracellular matrix protein anosmin-1 by X-ray scattering, analytical ultracentrifugation and constrained modelling.

Kallmann's syndrome corresponds to a loss of sense of smell and hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism. Defects in anosmin-1 result in the X-linked inherited form of Kallmann's syndrome. Anosmin-1 is an extracellular matrix protein comprised of an N-terminal, cysteine-rich (Cys-box) domain and a whey acidic protein-like (WAP) domain, followed by four fibronectin… CONTINUE READING
