4gid Summary


Structure of beta-secretase complexed with inhibitor

The structure was published by Ghosh, A.K., Venkateswara Rao, K., Yadav, N.D., et al., Huang, X., Terzyan, S., and Tang, J., in 2012 in a paper entitled "Structure-based design of highly selective beta-secretase inhibitors: synthesis, biological evaluation, and protein-ligand X-ray crystal structure." (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 2.0 Å and deposited in 2012.

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

This PDB entry contains multiple copies of the structure of Beta-secretase 1.

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.
