Abstract : It has been shown that there is no epidermal growth factor (EGF)-receptor binding nor mitogenic activity in the synthetic first EGF-like domain of factor IX(45-87). However, the Gla-independent calcium binding site has been located in this peptide fragment. The sequence-specific assignment of the 1H-NMR resonances and the secondary structure of the peptide have been determined by standard 2D-NMR techniques. Also, the location of the calcium binding site has been investigated.
