1boo Summary



The structure was published by Gong, W., O'Gara, M., Blumenthal, R.M., and Cheng, X., in 1997 in a paper entitled "Structure of pvu II DNA-(cytosine N4) methyltransferase, an example of domain permutation and protein fold assignment." (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 2.8 Å and deposited in 1998.

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

The PDB entry contains the structure of PROTEIN (N-4 CYTOSINE-SPECIFIC METHYLTRANSFERASE PVU II). This molecule has the UniProt identifier P11409 (MTP2_PROHU)search. The sample contained 323 residues which is 96% of the natural sequence. Out of 323 residues 275 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.
