3a5t Summary


Crystal structure of MafG-DNA complex

The structure was published by Kurokawa, H., Motohashi, H., Sueno, S., et al., Kanno, Y., Yamamoto, M., and Tanaka, T., in 2009 in a paper entitled "Structural Basis of Alternative DNA Recognition by Maf Transcription Factors" (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 2.8 Å and deposited in 2009.

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

This PDB entry contains a complex of 3 biomacromolecules, namely Transcription factor MafG, 5'-D(*CP*TP*GP*AP*TP*GP*AP*GP*TP*CP*AP*GP*CP*AP*C)-3', and 5'-D(*GP*TP*GP*CP*TP*GP*AP*CP*TP*CP*AP*TP*CP*AP*G)-3'.

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 has more than one probable quaternary state observed. For more details see the quaternary structure page.
