5-enol-Pyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSP synthase; phosphoenolpyruvate:3-phosphoshikimate 1-carboxyvinyltransferase, EC 2.5.1.19) is an enzyme on the pathway toward the synthesis of aromatic amino acids in plants, fungi, and bacteria and is the target of the broad-spectrum herbicide glyphosate. The three-dimensional structure of the enzyme from(More)
The three-dimensional structure of a genetically engineered variant of porcine growth hormone, methionyl porcine somatotropin (MPS), has been determined at 2.8-A resolution, using single crystal x-ray diffraction techniques. Phases were obtained by use of a single isomorphous K2OsCl6 derivative and were improved by use of the density modification procedure.(More)
Computer support for research in biotechnology has developed rapidly and has provided several tools to aid the researcher. This report describes the capabilities of new computer software developed in this laboratory to aid in the documentation and planning of experiments in molecular biology. The program, POLLUX, provides a graphical medium for the entry,(More)
The evolutionary process from the Arg-Gly-Asp-Phe (RGDF) tetrapeptide to potent orally active anti-platelet agents is presented. The RGD sequence is an important component in the recognition of fibrinogen by its platelet receptor GP IIb-IIIa (integrin alpha IIb beta 3). This work concentrates on the replacement of the Arg-Gly dipeptidyl fragment by an(More)
