Crystallization and preliminary X-ray analysis of rat SHPS-1.

SHPS-1, a receptor-type transmembrane protein, is abundantly expressed in neural and myeloid tissues. The most amino-terminal immunoglobulin-like domain of SHPS-1 plays an important role in a variety of cell functions by binding its ligand CD47. Interaction between SHPS-1 and CD47 is thought to be involved in negative regulation of phagocytosis. The ligand-binding domain of rat SHPS-1 was purified and crystallized using the vapour-diffusion method with the solution-stirring technique. Preliminary X-ray diffraction data were collected from SHPS-1 crystals to 2.8 A resolution and reduced to primitive hexagonal space group P622. Unit-cell parameters are a = b = 100.5, c = 101.3 A.[1]
