Crystallization and preliminary X-ray crystallographic analysis of Escherichia coli RbsD, a component of the ribose-transport system with unknown biochemical function.


The Escherichia coli high-affinity ribose-transport system consists of six proteins encoded by the rbs operon (rbsD, rbsA, rbsC, rbsB, rbsK and rbsR). Of the six components, RbsD is the only one whose function is unknown. In order to gain insights into the function of RbsD by structural analysis, we overexpressed and crystallized the protein as a first step… (More)
