1a2t Summary



The structure was published by Wynn, R., Harkins, P.C., Richards, F.M., and Fox, R.O., in 1996 in a paper entitled "Mobile unnatural amino acid side chains in the core of staphylococcal nuclease." (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 1.96 Å and deposited in 1998.

The experimental data on which the structure is based was not deposited.

The PDB entry contains the structure of STAPHYLOCOCCAL NUCLEASE. This molecule has the UniProt identifier P00644 (NUC_STAAU)search. The sample contained 149 residues which is < 90% of the natural sequence. Out of 149 residues 135 were observed and are deposited in the PDB.

It also contains one or more heterogenic compounds (e.g., ligands, co-factors, ions, modified amino acids, etc.); see here for a complete list.

The molecule is most likely monomeric.
