1uby Summary



The structure was published by Tarshis, L.C., Proteau, P.J., Kellogg, B.A., Sacchettini, J.C., and Poulter, C.D., in 1996 in a paper entitled "Regulation of product chain length by isoprenyl diphosphate synthases." (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 2.4 Å and deposited in 1996.

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

The PDB entry contains the structure of FARNESYL DIPHOSPHATE SYNTHASE. This molecule has the UniProt identifier P08836 (FPPS_CHICK)search. The sample contained 367 residues which is 100% of the natural sequence. Out of 367 residues 348 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 has more than one probable quaternary state observed. For more details see the quaternary structure page.
