1yyw Summary


Crystal structure of RNase III from Aquifex aeolicus complexed with double stranded RNA at 2.8-Angstrom Resolution

The structure was published by Gan, J., Tropea, J.E., Austin, B.P., Court, D.L., Waugh, D.S., and Ji, X., in 2005 in a paper entitled "Intermediate states of ribonuclease III in complex with double-stranded RNA" (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 2.8 Å and deposited in 2005.

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

This PDB entry contains a complex of 2 biomacromolecules, namely 5'-R(*AP*AP*AP*UP*AP*UP*AP*UP*AP*UP*UP*U)-3' and Ribonuclease III.

The molecule has more than one probable quaternary state observed. For more details see the quaternary structure page.
