2ygw Summary


Crystal structure of human MCD

The structure was published by Froese, D.S., Forouhar, F., Tran, T.H., et al., Oppermann, U., Yue, W.W., and Tong, L., in 2013 in a paper entitled "Crystal Structures of Malonyl-Coenzyme a Decarboxylase Provide Insights Into its Catalytic Mechanism and Disease-Causing Mutations." (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 2.8 Å and deposited in 2011.

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

This PDB entry contains multiple copies of the structure of MALONYL-COA DECARBOXYLASE, MITOCHONDRIAL.

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.
