Regulation of the tertiary structure and function of coagulation factor IX by magnesium (II) ions.

Abstract

The indispensable role of Ca2+ ions in the maintenance of the functional tertiary structures of vitamin K-dependent coagulation factors has been definitively established but the participation of Mg2+ ions, another alkaline-earth metal that is present abundantly in blood plasma, in such a process is not yet understood. We show here that the Ca(2+)-stabilized… (More)
