Structural basis for type I and type II deficiencies of antithrombotic plasma protein C: patterns revealed by three-dimensional molecular modelling of mutations of the protease domain.

Familial deficiency of protein C is associated with inherited thrombophilia. To explore how specific missense mutations might cause observed clinical phenotypes, know protein C missense mutations were mapped onto three-dimensional homology models of the protein C protease domain, and the implications for domain folding and structure were evaluated. Most… CONTINUE READING
