2ypn Summary


Hydroxymethylbilane synthase

The structure was published by Nieh, Y.P., Raftery, J., Weisgerber, S., et al., Campbell, J.W., Hao, Q., and Helliwell, J.R., in 1999 in a paper entitled "Accurate and highly complete synchrotron protein crystal Laue diffraction data using the ESRF CCD and the Daresbury Laue software" (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 2.3 Å and deposited in 1999.

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

The PDB entry contains the structure of PROTEIN (HYDROXYMETHYLBILANE SYNTHASE). This molecule has the UniProt identifier P06983 (HEM3_ECOLI)search. The sample contained 313 residues which is 100% of the natural sequence. Out of 313 residues 292 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.
