VITVault protein Inter-alpha-Trypsin domain
|SMART accession number:||SM00609|
|Interpro abstract (IPR013694):|
Inter-alpha-trypsin inhibitors (ITIs) consist of one light chain and a variable set of heavy chains. ITIs play a role in extracellular matrix (ECM) stabilisation and tumour metastasis as well as in plasma protease inhibition [(PUBMED:14744536)]. The vault protein inter-alpha-trypsin (VIT) domain described here is found to the N terminus of a von Willebrand factor type A domain (IPR002035) in ITI heavy chains (ITIHs) and their precursors.
