Structure of alanine racemase from Oenococcus oeni with bound pyridoxal 5'-phosphate.

The crystal structure of alanine racemase from Oenococcus oeni has been determined at 1.7 Å resolution using the single-wavelength anomalous dispersion (SAD) method and selenium-labelled protein. The protein exists as a symmetric dimer in the crystal, with both protomers contributing to the two active sites. Pyridoxal 5'-phosphate, a cofactor, is bound to… CONTINUE READING
