The tungsten-containing formate dehydrogenase (W-FDH) isolated from Desulfovibrio gigas has been crystallized in space group P21, with cell parameters a=73.8 Å, b=111.3 Å, c=156.6 Å and β=93.7°. These crystals diffract to beyond 2.0 Å on a synchrotron radiation source. W-FDH is a heterodimer (92 kDa and 29 kDa subunits) and two W-FDH molecules are present… CONTINUE READING
