TxIXA (P02559) Protein Card

General Information
Name TxIXA
Alternative name(s) Tx9.1,Tx9a
Organism Conus textile (Cloth-of-gold cone)
Organism region Indo-Pacific
Organism diet molluscivorous
Protein Type Wild type
Protein precursor TxIXA precursor (608)
Notes The GmIXA peptide differs by the absence of the two gamma carboxylic acids. GmIXA does not present a difference of activity but TxIXA folds more efficiently than GmIXA in the presence of calcium ions (as in the endoplasmic reticulum).

Ueberheide et al. 2009 have isolated TxIXA without the modification of glutamic acids into γ-carboxylic glutamic acids.
