Crystal structure of neuroserpin: a neuronal serpin involved in a conformational disease.

Abstract

The protease inhibitor neuroserpin regulates the development of the nervous system and its plasticity in the adult. Neuroserpins carrying the Ser53Pro or Ser56Arg mutation form polymers in neuronal cells. We describe here the structure of wild-type neuroserpin in a cleaved form. The structure provides a basis to understand the role of the mutations in the polymerization process. We propose that these mutations could delay the insertion of the reactive center loop into the central beta-sheet A, an essential step in the inhibition and possibly in the polymerization of neuroserpin.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
