A structure of the trisaccharide 2-acetamido-2-deoxy-D-muramic acid-beta (1----4)-2-acetamido-2-deoxy-D-glucose-beta (1----4)-2-acetamido-2-deoxy-D-muramic acid (NAM-NAG-NAM), bound to subsites B, C and D in the active-site cleft of hen egg-white lysozyme has been determined and refined at 1.5 A resolution. The resulting atomic co-ordinates indicate that… CONTINUE READING
