Molecular Structure of Dihydroorotase: A Paradigm for Catalysis Through the Use of a Binuclear Metal Center

The structure was published by Thoden, J.B., Phillips Jr., G.N., Neal, T.M., Raushel, F.M., and Holden, H.M., in 2001 in a paper entitled "Molecular structure of dihydroorotase: a paradigm for catalysis through the use of a binuclear metal center." (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 1.7 Å and deposited in 2001.

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