Structure of the N-terminal Exonuclease Domain of the Epsilon Subunit of E.coli DNA Polymerase III at pH 8.5

The structure was published by Hamdan, S., Carr, P.D., Brown, S.E., Ollis, D.L., and Dixon, N.E., in 2002 in a paper entitled "Structural Basis for Proofreading during Replication of the Escherichia coli Chromosome" (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 1.8 Å and deposited in 2002.

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

The PDB entry contains the structure of DNA polymerase III, epsilon chain. This molecule has the UniProt identifier P03007 (DPO3E_ECOLI)search. The sample contained 186 residues which is < 90% of the natural sequence. Out of 186 residues 172 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.
