BPTI (bovine pancreatic trypsin inhibitor) is an extensively studied model structure. Certain family members are similar to the tick anticoagulant peptide (TAP, Swiss:P17726). This is a highly selective inhibitor of factor Xa in the blood coagulation pathways [1]. TAP molecules are highly dipolar [2], and are arranged to form a twisted two- stranded antiparallel beta-sheet followed by an alpha helix [1].
