The proenzyme forms of single-chain polypeptides of approximately 83 kDa. , with the Cl$ dimer at the coreof the tetramer[29,30]). BothClr and Cls are seen as two globular domains connected by an elongated structure, with the larger of the globular domains containing the catalytic site in activated Clr and Cls. A model of the Cl complex has been proposed (31) in which the Cls-Clr-Clr-Cls tetramer adopts a distorted figure eight structure with the smaller globular “interaction” domains located outside the collagen-like strands of Clq while the globular catalytic domains remain closely associated within the collagen-like strands.
