Figure 1.
Figure 1. Crystal structure of AGT from Anabaena sp. (A) Stereo ribbon diagram of Anabena sp. AGT color-coded from N-terminus (blue) to C-terminus (red), showing the domain organization and location of the putative active site (PLP molecule shown in ball-and-stick representation). Helices H1-H15 and -strands ( 1- 12), as well as -sheets A, B, and C are indicated. (B) Diagram showing the secondary structure elements in Anabaena sp. AGT superimposed on its primary sequence. The -sheet designations are indicated by a red A, B, and C. Above each -strand, -bulges and -turns are indicated. -hairpins are depicted as red loops. Disordered regions are depicted by a dashed line, with the corresponding sequence in brackets.
Figure 2.
Figure 2. (A) Ribbon diagram of the Anabaena sp. AGT dimer. The N-terminal segment (red), N-terminal domain (green), and C-terminal domain (blue) are indicated for chain A. (B) Superposition of Anabaena sp. AGT (blue) and human AGT (PDB code: 1h0c; gray). The corresponding bound PLP and LLP (lysine-pyridoxal-5 -phosphate) ligands are shown in ball-and-stick representation, and regions of structural difference are labeled. (C) The PLP molecule bound to the active site of Anabaena sp. AGT and interacting residues are shown in ball-and-stick representation. 2Fo-Fc density for PLP contoured at 1 is shown in blue. (D) Superposition of the active sites with the PLP and LLP molecules and interacting residues from Anabaena sp. AGT (blue) and their counterparts in human AGT (gray, residues labeled in brackets) in ball-and-stick representation.

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. Where a reference describes a PDB structure, the PDB code is shown on the right.
