Essentials VKORL1 and VKORC1 have a similar overall structure and warfarin-binding pocket. A peripheral region stabilizing this pocket controls warfarin sensitivity of the VKOR paralogs. A human single nucleotide polymorphism in this region renders VKORL1 sensitive to warfarin. A group of warfarin-resistant mutations in VKORC1 acts by disrupting peripheral… (More)
