Title: Crystallization and Preliminary X-ray Diffraction Analysis of Hemextin A: A Unique Anticoagulant Protein from Hemachatus haemachatus Venom

Abstract

Hemextin A was isolated and purified from African Ringhals cobra (Hemachatus haemachatus). It is a three-finger toxin that specifically inhibits blood coagulation factor VIIa and clot formation and that also interacts with hemextin B to form a unique anticoagulant complex. Hemextin A was crystallized by the hanging-drop vapor-diffusion method by equilibration against 0.2 M ammonium acetate, 0.1 M sodium acetate trihydrate pH 4.6 and 30% PEG 4000 as the precipitating agent. The crystals belong to space group P2{sub 1}2{sub 1}2{sub 1}, with unit-cell parameters a = 49.27, b = 49.51, c = 57.87 {angstrom} and two molecules in the asymmetric unit. They diffracted to 1.5 {angstrom} resolution at beamline X25 at BNL.
