1ps1 Summary



The structure was published by Lesburg, C.A., Zhai, G., Cane, D.E., and Christianson, D.W., in 1997 in a paper entitled "Crystal structure of pentalenene synthase: mechanistic insights on terpenoid cyclization reactions in biology." (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 2.6 Å and deposited in 1997.

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