the enzyme may be useful for developing potential diagnostic agents for detecting coagulation disorders
drug development
VaaSPH-1 represents a very promising template to design low molecular mass FVIIIa-directed anticoagulant substances, based on structural features of the interaction surface between VaaSPH-1 and FVIIIa. Construction of a three-dimensional model of VaaSPH-1 bound to FVIIIa. The model exposes the 157-loop and the preceding alpha-helix as the most appropriate structural elements of VaaSPH-1 to be considered as a guideline to synthesize small FVIIIa-binding molecules, potential different generation of anticoagulants
