Crystallization and preliminary crystallographic study of 3 alpha, 20 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase from Streptomyces hydrogenans.


3 alpha, 20 beta-Hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase, an NADH-dependent oxidoreductase isolated from Streptomyces hydrogenans , is a tetramer containing four subunits each of Mr 25,000. The enzyme has been crystallized by the vapor diffusion technique using either phosphate or borate buffered ammonium sulfate (pH between 6.0 and 8.7) as the precipitant. The… (More)
