Crystal structure of the exosite-containing fragment of human ADAMTS13 (form-2)

Publication Abstract from PubMed

ADAMTS13 is a reprolysin-type metalloproteinase belonging to the ADAMTS (a disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin type 1 motif) family. It specifically cleaves plasma von Willebrand factor (VWF) and regulates platelet adhesion and aggregation. ADAMTS13 is a multi-domain enzyme. In addition to the N-terminal metalloproteinase domain, the ancillary domains, including a disintegrin-like domain, a thrombospondin-1 type 1 repeat, a Cys-rich domain and a spacer domain, are required for VWF recognition and cleavage. In the present study, a fragment of the ADAMTS13 ancillary domains (ADAMTS13-DTCS; residues 287-685) was expressed using CHO Lec cells, purified and crystallized. Diffraction data sets were collected using the SPring-8 beamline. Two ADAMTS13-DTCS crystals with distinct unit-cell parameters generated data sets to 2.6 and 2.8 A resolution, respectively.

[ATS13_HUMAN] Defects in ADAMTS13 are the cause of thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura congenital (TTP) [MIM:274150]; also known as Upshaw-Schulman syndrome (USS). A hematologic disease characterized by hemolytic anemia with fragmentation of erythrocytes, thrombocytopenia, diffuse and non-focal neurologic findings, decreased renal function and fever.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13][14][15][16][17][18][19][20]


[ATS13_HUMAN] Cleaves the vWF multimers in plasma into smaller forms.
