PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
STRUCTURE
motifs/domains
  • nine von Willebrand vWF factor A domains within the N terminal portion
  • a central triple helical domain (TH) flanked by large N- and C-terminal globular domains (N110 and C1C5)
  • three unrelated protein motifs at the C terminal end
  • two vWF domains
  • a proline rich repetitive segment
  • alpha chain has much larger N- and C-globular domains than the other two chains
  • a fibronectin type III repeat-like
  • one Kunitz-type (38AA motif containing three intrachain disulfide bonds) domains
  • conjugated GlycoP
    mono polymer heteromer , trimer
