1d66 Summary



The structure was published by Marmorstein, R., Carey, M., Ptashne, M., and Harrison, S.C., in 1992 in a paper entitled "DNA recognition by GAL4: structure of a protein-DNA complex." (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 2.7 Å and deposited in 1992.

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

This PDB entry contains a complex of 3 biomacromolecules, namely DNA (5'-D(*CP*CP*GP*GP*AP*GP*GP*AP*CP*AP*GP*TP*CP*CP*TP*CP*C P*GP*G)-3'), DNA (5'-D(*CP*CP*GP*GP*AP*GP*GP*AP*CP*TP*GP*TP*CP*CP*TP*CP*C P*GP*G)-3'), and PROTEIN (GAL4).

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 most likely forms heterotetramers.
