The N-terminal of BLU was observed to interact with the C-terminal of SMEK1, a regulatory subunit of protein phosphatase 4. Furthermore, we determined the binding domains that are required for interaction between BLU and sMEK1. The N-terminal of BLU was observed to interact with the C-terminal of sMEK1.

To test the hypothesis that the corresponding sequence in heparin cofactor II (HCII), FLFLI (residues 456-460), mediates binding and uptake of the thrombin-HCII complex by Hep G2 cells, we constructed five recombinant HCII variants, F456A, L457A, F458A, L459A, and I460A.
