1fss Summary



There is a Quite Interesting Protein Structure article for this entry.

The structure was published by Harel, M., Kleywegt, G.J., Ravelli, R.B., Silman, I., and Sussman, J.L., in 1995 in a paper entitled "Crystal structure of an acetylcholinesterase-fasciculin complex: interaction of a three-fingered toxin from snake venom with its target." (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 3.0 Å and deposited in 1995.

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

This PDB entry contains a complex of 2 biomacromolecules, namely ACETYLCHOLINESTERASE and FASCICULIN II.

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 has more than one probable quaternary state observed. For more details see the quaternary structure page.
