The structure of a Ca(2+)-binding epidermal growth factor-like domain: its role in protein-protein interactions

Z RaoDavid I Stuart


Various diverse extracellular proteins possess Ca(2+)-binding epidermal growth factor (EGF)-like domains, the function of which remains uncertain. We have determined, at high resolution (1.5 A), the crystal structure of such a domain, from human clotting factor IX, as a complex with Ca2+. The Ca2+ ligands form a classic pentagonal bipyramid with six ligands contributed by one polypeptide chain and the seventh supplied by a neighboring EGF-like domain. The crystal structure identifies the role of Ca2+ in maintaining the conformation of the N-terminal region of the domain, but more importantly demonstrates that Ca2+ can directly mediate protein-protein contacts. The observed crystal packing of the domains provides a plausible model for the association of multiple tandemly linked EGF-like domains in proteins such as fibrillin-1, Notch, and protein S. This model is consistent with the known functional data and suggests a general biological role for these domains.
