The crystal structure of recombinant rat prostatic acid phosphatase in complex with the inhibitor L(+)-tartrate was determined to 3-A resolution with protein crystallographic methods. The inhibitor binds at the carboxyl end of the parallel strands of the alpha/beta domain. One of the carboxyl groups of the tartrate molecule interacts with the conserved… CONTINUE READING
