1nw9 Summary



The structure was published by Shiozaki, E.N., Chai, J., Rigotti, D.J., et al., Alnemri, E.S., Fairman, R., and Shi, Y., in 2003 in a paper entitled "Mechanism of XIAP-Mediated Inhibition of Caspase-9" (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 2.4 Å and deposited in 2003.

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

This PDB entry contains a complex of 2 biomacromolecules, namely Baculoviral IAP repeat-containing protein 4 and caspase 9, apoptosis-related cysteine protease.

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 most likely forms heterodimers.
