Crystal Structure of Human m-Calpain Form I

The structure was published by Strobl, S., Fernandez-Catalan, C., Braun, M., et al., Bartunik, H., Suzuki, K., and Bode, W., in 2000 in a paper entitled "The crystal structure of calcium-free human m-calpain suggests an electrostatic switch mechanism for activation by calcium." (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 3.15 Å and deposited in 2001.

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

This PDB entry contains a complex of 2 biomacromolecules, namely M-CALPAIN LARGE SUBUNIT and M-CALPAIN SMALL SUBUNIT.
