Crystal structure of Aurora A complexed with an inhibitor discovered through site-directed dynamic tethering

The structure was published by Cancilla, M.T., He, M.M., Viswanathan, N., et al., Fung, A.D., Cao, K., and Erlanson, D.A., in 2008 in a paper entitled "Discovery of an Aurora kinase inhibitor through site-specific dynamic combinatorial chemistry." (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 2.0 Å and deposited in 2008.

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

The PDB entry contains the structure of serine/threonine kinase 6. This molecule has the UniProt identifier P97477 (AURKA_MOUSE)search. The sample contained 272 residues which is < 90% of the natural sequence. Out of 272 residues 242 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.
