4imt Summary


Structure of rat neuronal nitric oxide synthase in complex with 6,6'-((4-(3-aminopropyl)-1,3-phenylene)bis(ethane-2,1-diyl))bis(4-methylpyridin-2-amine)

The structure was published by Huang, H., Li, H., Martasek, P., Roman, L.J., Poulos, T.L., and Silverman, R.B., in 2013 in a paper entitled "Structure-guided design of selective inhibitors of neuronal nitric oxide synthase." (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 2.2 Å and deposited in 2013.

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