Pentraxin family of proteins interact specifically with phosphorylcholine and/or phosphorylethanolamine.

Abstract

Pentraxins are a family of serum proteins characterized by five identical subunits that are noncovalently linked. The two major types of pentraxins are C-reactive protein (CRP) and serum amyloid P component (SAP). CRP proteins are identified by their calcium-dependent interaction with phosphorylcholine. This study showed that SAP also bound to… (More)
