Structural basis for the disruption of the cerebral cavernous malformations 2 (CCM2) interaction with Krev interaction trapped 1 (KRIT1) by disease-associated mutations.
 

Author(s): Oriana S Fisher, Weizhi Liu, Rong Zhang, Amy L Stiegler, Sondhya Ghedia, James L Weber, Titus J Boggon

Journal: J. Biol. Chem.. 2015 Jan;290(5):2842-53.

 

Familial cerebral cavernous malformations (CCMs) are predominantly neurovascular lesions and are associated with mutations within the KRIT1, CCM2, and PDCD10 genes. The protein products of KRIT1 and CCM2 (Krev interaction trapped 1 (KRIT1) and cerebral cavernous malformations 2 (CCM2), ...

Structural studies of cerebral cavernous malformations 2 (CCM2) reveal a folded helical domain at its C-terminus.
 

Author(s): Oriana S Fisher, Rong Zhang, Xiaofeng Li, James W Murphy, Borries Demeler, Titus J Boggon

Journal: FEBS Lett.. 2013 Jan;587(3):272-7.

 

Cerebral cavernous malformations (CCM) are neurovascular dysplasias affecting up to 0.5% of the population. Mutations in the CCM2 gene are associated with acquisition of CCM. We identify a previously uncharacterized domain at the C-terminus of CCM2 and determine its 1.9Å resolution ...
