1pvl Summary



There is a Quite Interesting Protein Structure article for this entry.

The structure was published by Pedelacq, J.D., Maveyraud, L., Prevost, G., et al., Monteil, H., Samama, J.P., and Mourey, L., in 1999 in a paper entitled "The structure of a Staphylococcus aureus leucocidin component (LukF-PV) reveals the fold of the water-soluble species of a family of transmembrane pore-forming toxins." (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 2.0 Å and deposited in 1999.

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

The PDB entry contains the structure of LEUCOCIDIN. This molecule has the UniProt identifier Q5FBD2 (Q5FBD2_STAAU)search. The sample contained 301 residues which is 93% of the natural sequence. Out of 301 residues 296 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.
