Crystallization and preliminary X-ray diffraction analysis of a rat biliverdin reductase.

Biliverdin reductase (BVR) catalyzes the final step of haem degradation and converts biliverdin to bilirubin using NAD(P)H as an electron donor. This paper deals with the first crystallization and preliminary crystallographic study of recombinant rat BVR expressed in Escherichia coli. Crystals of BVR were obtained by the sitting-drop vapour-diffusion method. Using synchrotron radiation at station BL44B2 of SPring-8, Japan, BVR diffraction data were collected to 1.6 A resolution. Crystals belong to the orthorhombic space group P2(1)2(1)2(1), with unit-cell parameters a = 58.89, b = 70.41, c = 87.76 A. The complete determination of the crystallographic structure is currently in progress using MAD (multiwavelength anomalous diffraction) data from an Ir-derivative crystal.

Figure 2.
Figure 2 Bijvoet difference Patterson maps using the data collected at 1.1053 . Diffraction data in the resolution range 30-2 were used for calculation. Cross symbols correspond to Ir-Ir self-vectors. The position of the Ir atom is refined as (0.081, 0.139, 0.062) by vector-space refinement.

The most recent references are shown first. Citation data come partly from CiteXplore and partly from an automated harvesting procedure. Note that this is likely to be only a partial list as not all journals are covered by either method. However, we are continually building up the citation data so more and more references will be included with time.
