Crystal Structure of Pokeweed Lectin-D2

The structure was published by Fujii, T., Hayashida, M., Hamasu, M., Ishiguro, M., and Hata, Y., in 2004 in a paper entitled "Structures of two lectins from the roots of pokeweed (Phytolacca americana)." (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 1.5 Å and deposited in 2003.

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

The PDB entry contains the structure of lectin-D2. This molecule has the UniProt identifier P83790 (LED2_PHYAM)search. The sample contained 82 residues which is 100% of the natural sequence. Out of 82 residues 82 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.
