A model of rabbit muscle phosphoglucomutase was refined at 2.7-A resolution by using two heavy atom derivatives for initial phasing and standard refinement procedures, including molecular replacement averaging about a 2-fold axis and dynamic simulation: final R-factor, 0.223 (no solvent modeling); RMS deviation from standard bond lengths and angles, 0.020 A(More)
Comoviruses are a group of plant viruses in the picornavirus superfamily. The type member of comoviruses, cowpea mosaic virus (CPMV), was crystallized in the cubic space group I23, a = 317 A and the hexagonal space group P6(1)22, a = 451 A, c = 1038 A. Structures of three closely similar nucleoprotein particles were determined in the cubic form. The roughly(More)
Red clover mottle virus (RCMV) is a member of the comoviruses, a group of picornavirus-like plant viruses. The X-ray structure of RCMV strain S has been determined and refined to 2.4 A. The overall structure of RCMV is similar to that of two other comoviruses, Cowpea mosaic virus (CPMV) and Bean pod mottle virus (BPMV). The sequence of the coat proteins of(More)
Praelolide is a new compound which was isolated out from the gorgonian, Menella praelonga (Ridley), collected from the South Sea of China at Zhanjiang, Guangdong. The molecular formula is C28H35O12Cl. The research result by X-ray diffraction method on the crystal structure is presented. The compound is orthorhombic with space group P2(1)2(1)2, cell(More)
butyl ester), was done in the conventional way. Using this combination, [ ~ A l a ~ ~ ) IDHI was obtained in crystalline form and gave about 50% of the insulin activity in the mouseconvulsion assay. Insulins from different species are analogues formed in the course of evolution and are very useful in structure-and-function studies. We have worked out a(More)
The crystal structure of (D-Ala)-B0 porcine insulin has been determined, using data to 1.9 A and atomic parameters of 2 Zn porcine insulin as a starting model, and through the use of the difference method and the restrained least square method, to a final R-factor of 0.211 and r.m.s. deviation of 0.057 A for the bond lengths. The electron densities of B0(More)
In the present paper it is reported that the molecular structure and absolute configuration of poisonous suberogorgin are determined by using X-ray diffraction method. The crystal of suberogorgin belongs to orthogonal system with space group D4(2)-P2(1)2(1)2(1). The crystallographic parameters are: a = 16.135A, b = 13.189A, c = 12.901A, Z = 8. The initial(More)
