1uro Summary



The structure was published by Whitby, F.G., Phillips, J.D., Kushner, J.P., and Hill, C.P., in 1998 in a paper entitled "Crystal structure of human uroporphyrinogen decarboxylase." (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 1.8 Å and deposited in 1998.

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

The PDB entry contains the structure of PROTEIN (UROPORPHYRINOGEN DECARBOXYLASE). This molecule has the UniProt identifier P06132 (DCUP_HUMAN)search. The sample contained 367 residues which is 100% of the natural sequence. Out of 367 residues 357 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 most likely forms homodimers.
