Structures of the rat complement regulator CrrY

Complement receptor 1-related protein Y (CrrY) is an important cell-surface regulator of complement that is unique to rodent species. The structure of rat CrrY domains 1-4 has been determined in two distinct crystal forms and reveals a 70° bend between domains 3 and 4. Comparisons of this structure with those of other complement regulators suggests that… CONTINUE READING
