Savinase (EC3.4.21.14) is secreted by the alkalophilic bacterium Bacillus lentus and is a representative of that subgroup of subtilisin enzymes with maximum stability in the pH range 7 to 10 and high activity in the range 8 to 12. It is therefore of major industrial importance for use in detergents. The crystal structure of the native form of Savinase has(More)
The crystal and molecular structure of proteinase K was determined by X-ray diffraction data to 0.15-nm resolution. The enzyme belongs to the subtilisin family with an active-site catalytic triad Asp39--His69--Ser224 but is a representative of a subgroup with a free Cys73 close to and 'below' the active His69. Besides this Cys72, proteinase K has two(More)
The trypsin from Fusarium oxysporum is equally homologous to trypsins from Streptomyces griseus, Streptomyces erythraeus and to bovine trypsin. A DFP (diisopropylfluorophosphate) inhibited form of the enzyme has been crystallized from 1.4 M Na2SO4, buffered with citrate at pH 5.0-5.5. The crystals belong to space group P2(1) with cell parameters a = 33.43(More)
X-ray diffraction data at atomic resolution to 0.98 A with 136 380 observed unique reflections were collected using a high quality proteinase K crystals grown under microgravity conditions and cryocooled. The structure has been refined anisotropically with REFMAC and SHELX-97 with R-factors of 11.4 and 12.8%, and R(free)-factors of 12.4 and 13.5%,(More)
The crystal structure of the ribosome-inactivating protein (RIP) mistletoe lectin I (ML-I) from Viscum album has been solved by molecular replacement techniques. The structure has been refined to a crystallographic R-factor of 24.5% using X-ray diffraction data to 2.8 A resolution. The heterodimeric 63-kDa protein consists of a toxic A subunit which(More)
The crystal structure of subtilisin DY inhibited by N-benzyloxycarbonyl-Ala-Pro-Phe-chloromethyl ketone has been solved by molecular replacement with subtilisin Carlsberg as the starting model. The model has been refined to a crystallographic R factor (= sigma absolute value [(absolute value Fo) - (absolute value Fc)] / sigma (absolute value of Fo) of 15.1%(More)
The three-dimensional structure of the serine protease subtilisin BPN' (SBT) has been refined at 1.6 A resolution in space group C2 to a final R value of 0.17. 17 regions of discrete disorder have been identified and analyzed. Two of these are dual-conformation peptide units; the remainder involve alternate rotamers of side chains either alone or in small(More)
This is the first high resolution crystal structure of an RNA molecule made by solid phase chemical synthesis and representing a natural RNA. The structure of the domain A of Thermus flavus ribosomal 5S RNA is refined to R = 18% at 2.4 A including 159 solvent molecules. Most of the 2'-hydroxyl groups as well as the phosphate oxygens are involved either in(More)
This is the first structural observation of a plant product showing high affinity for phospholipase A(2) and regulating the synthesis of arachidonic acid, an intermediate in the production of prostaglandins. The crystal structure of a complex formed between Vipera russelli phospholipase A(2) and a plant alkaloid aristolochic acid has been determined and(More)
