The Binding Mode of Epothilone A on , -Tubulin by Electron Crystallography


The structure of epothilone A, bound to , -tubulin in zinc-stabilized sheets, was determined by a combination of electron crystallography at 2.89 angstrom resolution and nuclear magnetic resonance–based conformational analysis. The complex explains both the broad-based epothilone structureactivity relationship and the known mutational resistance profile… (More)
