Crystallization and preliminary X-ray diffraction characterisation of both a native and selenomethionyl VLA-4 binding fragment of VCAM-1.
Soluble fragments of the extracellular region of vascular cell adhesion molecule 1 (VCAM-1) expressed in Escherichia coli retain functional adhesive activity. An integrin (VLA-4) binding fragment consisting of the N-terminal two immunoglobulin-like domains (VCAM-d1,2) has been crystallized. The crystals belong to space group P2(1)2(1)2(1) with cell dimensions of a = 52.7 A, b = 66.5 A, c = 113.2 A and contain two molecules in the crystallographic asymmetric unit. A batch of protein produced i...Expand abstract
