2qv4 Summary


Human pancreatic alpha-amylase complexed with nitrite and acarbose

The structure was published by Maurus, R., Begum, A., Williams, L.K., et al., Zhang, R., Withers, S.G., and Brayer, G.D., in 2008 in a paper entitled "Alternative catalytic anions differentially modulate human alpha-amylase activity and specificity" (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 1.97 Å and deposited in 2007.

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

The PDB entry contains the structure of Pancreatic alpha-amylase. This molecule has the UniProt identifier P04746 (AMYP_HUMAN)search. The sample contained 496 residues which is 100% of the natural sequence. Out of 496 residues 496 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 is most likely monomeric.
