3i06 Summary


Crystal structure of cruzain covalently bound to a purine nitrile

The structure was published by Mott, B.T., Ferreira, R.S., Simeonov, A., et al., Thomas, C.J., Shoichet, B.K., and Maloney, D.J., in 2010 in a paper entitled "Identification and optimization of inhibitors of trypanosomal cysteine proteases: cruzain, rhodesain, and TbCatB." (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 1.1 Å and deposited in 2009.

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

The PDB entry contains the structure of Cruzipain. This molecule has the UniProt identifier P25779 (CYSP_TRYCR)search. The sample contained 215 residues which is < 90% of the natural sequence. Out of 215 residues 215 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.
