Crystal Structure of the Urea Transporter from Desulfovibrio Vulgaris

The structure was published by Levin, E.J., Quick, M., and Zhou, M., in 2009 in a paper entitled "Crystal structure of a bacterial homologue of the kidney urea transporter." (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 2.3 Å and deposited in 2009.

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

The PDB entry contains the structure of Urea transporter. This molecule has the UniProt identifier Q72CX3 (UT_DESVH)search. The sample contained 340 residues which is 100% of the natural sequence. Out of 340 residues 332 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 most likely forms homotrimers.
