2jcw Summary


PDB entry 2jcw (supersedes 1jcw)


The structure was published by Hart, P.J., Balbirnie, M.M., Ogihara, N.L., et al., Weiss, M.S., Valentine, J.S., and Eisenberg, D., in 1999 in a paper entitled "A structure-based mechanism for copper-zinc superoxide dismutase." (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 1.7 Å and deposited in 1998.

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

The PDB entry contains the structure of CU/ZN SUPEROXIDE DISMUTASE. This molecule has the UniProt identifier P00445 (SODC_YEAST)search. The sample contained 153 residues which is 99% of the natural sequence. Out of 153 residues 153 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.
