Crystallogenesis studies on yeast aspartyl-tRNA synthetase: use of phase diagram to improve crystal quality.


Aspartyl-tRNA synthetase (AspRS) extracted from yeast is heterogeneous owing to proteolysis of its positively charged N-terminus; its crystals are of poor quality. To overcome this drawback, a rational strategy was developed to grow crystals of sufficient quality for structure determination. The strategy is based on improvement of the protein homogeneity… (More)
