4ep9 Summary



The structure was published by Perspicace, S., Rufer, A.C., Thoma, R., et al., Ceccarelli, S., Schulz-Gasch, T., and Seelig, J., in 2013 in a paper entitled "Isothermal titration calorimetry with micelles: Thermodynamics of inhibitor binding to carnitine palmitoyltransferase 2 membrane protein." (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 2.03 Å and deposited in 2012.

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

The PDB entry contains the structure of Carnitine O-palmitoyltransferase 2, mitochondrial. This molecule has the UniProt identifier P18886 (CPT2_RAT)search. The sample contained 653 residues which is 96% of the natural sequence. Out of 653 residues 625 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.
