1d8c Summary



The structure was published by Howard, B.R., Endrizzi, J.A., and Remington, S.J., in 2000 in a paper entitled "Crystal structure of Escherichia coli malate synthase G complexed with magnesium and glyoxylate at 2.0 A resolution: mechanistic implications." (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 2.0 Å and deposited in 1999.

The experimental data on which the structure is based was also deposited.

The PDB entry contains the structure of MALATE SYNTHASE G. This molecule has the UniProt identifier P37330 (MASZ_ECOLI)search. The sample contained 723 residues which is 100% of the natural sequence. Out of 723 residues 686 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.
