Lumazine synthases have been observed in the form of pentamers, dimers of pentamers, icosahedral capsids consisting of 60 subunits and larger capsids with unknown molecular structure. Here we describe the analysis of the assembly of native and mutant forms of lumazine synthases from Bacillus subtilis and Aquifex aeolicus at various pH values and in the… CONTINUE READING
