The isoform was, therefore, subjected to X-ray crystallographic analysis; however, the conformation of the polypeptide main chain (data not shown) was very similar to that of a previously reported Tf structure, (19) PDB code 3V83.
They then showed that, for each particular laminin isoform, the different cells produced in the cultures matched those in different parts of the eyes of embryonic mice where the same laminin isoform predominated.

Furthermore, it is uncertain whether this potential risk of diabetes is related to Lp(a) itself or to other factors, such as the isoform size of Lp(a) or KIVR number.
