2okk Summary


The X-ray crystal structure of the 65kDa isoform of Glutamic Acid Decarboxylase (GAD65)

The structure was published by Fenalti, G., Law, R.H., Buckle, A.M., et al., Mackay, I.R., Rowley, M.J., and Whisstock, J.C., in 2007 in a paper entitled "GABA production by glutamic acid decarboxylase is regulated by a dynamic catalytic loop." (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 2.3 Å and deposited in 2007.

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

The PDB entry contains the structure of Glutamate decarboxylase 2. This molecule has the UniProt identifier Q05329 (DCE2_HUMAN)search. The sample contained 497 residues which is < 90% of the natural sequence. Out of 497 residues 473 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.
