X-ray analysis of a thrombin inhibitor-trypsin complex.


The three-dimensional structure of a thrombin inhibitor-trypsin complex has been determined by an X-ray analysis at 2.5 A resolution. The result has given experimental support to the mechanisms previously proposed by the authors for the selective inhibition of trypsin, thrombin, factor Xa, and plasmin by inhibitors with an arginine or lysine backbone.
