Thaumatin-like proteins (TLPs) have mostly been investigated in the context of their function as pathogenesis-related proteins and only in recent years have some of them been classified as allergens. Here, the purification and crystallization of the first allergenic TLP, Pru av 2, a 23.3 kDa protein isolated from ripe cherries, is reported. The crystals diffracted to 2.1 A resolution at a rotating-anode generator and were found to belong to space group P2(1), with unit-cell parameters a = 44.48… CONTINUE READING
