The yeast Saccharomycopsis fibuligera produces a glucoamylase which belongs to sequence family 15 of glycosyl hydrolases. The structure of the non-glycosyl-ated recombinant enzyme has been determined by molecular replacement and refined against 1.7 A resolution synchrotron data to an R factor of 14.6%. This is the first report of the three-dimensional(More)
Most glucoamylases (alpha-1,4-D-glucan glucohydrolase, EC 3.2.1.3) have structures consisting of both a catalytic and a starch binding domain. The structure of a glucoamylase from Saccharomycopsis fibuligera HUT 7212 (Glu), determined a few years ago, consists of a single catalytic domain. The structure of this enzyme with the resolution extended to 1.1 A(More)
We report the 1.7 A resolution structure of RNase Sa complexed with the polypeptide inhibitor barstar. The crystals are in the hexagonal space group P65 with unit-cell dimensions a = b = 56.9, c = 135.8 A and the asymmetric unit contains one molecule of the complex. RNase Sa is an extracellular microbial ribonuclease produced by Streptomyces aureofaciens.(More)
Three different strains of Streptomyces aureofaciens produce the homologous ribonucleases Sa, Sa2 and Sa3. The crystal structures of ribonuclease Sa (RNase Sa) and its complexes with mononucleotides have previously been reported at high resolution. Here, the structures of two crystal forms (I and II) of ribonuclease Sa2 (RNase Sa2) are presented at 1.8 and(More)
Ribonuclease from Streptomyces aureofaciens, the bacterial source for the industrial production of chlorotetracycline, is a guanylate endoribonuclease (RNase Sa; EC 3.1.27.3) which hydrolyses the phosphodiester bonds of single-stranded RNA at the 3'-side of guanosine nucleotides with high specificity. The structure of the enzyme was previously refined at(More)
