1xqe Summary


The mechanism of ammonia transport based on the crystal structure of AmtB of E. coli.

The structure was published by Zheng, L., Kostrewa, D., Berneche, S., Winkler, F.K., and Li, X.-D., in 2004 in a paper entitled "The mechanism of ammonia transport based on the crystal structure of AmtB of Escherichia coli" (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 2.1 Å and deposited in 2004.

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

The PDB entry contains the structure of Probable ammonium transporter. This molecule has the UniProt identifier P69681 (AMTB_ECOLI)search. The sample contained 418 residues which is 100% of the natural sequence. Out of 418 residues 366 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 homotrimers.
