Structure of the dimeric form of CTP synthase from Sulfolobus solfataricus

I. Lauritsen, M. Willemoës, K. F. Jensen, E. Johansson and P. Harris

Synopsis: The crystal structure of an unliganded form of CTP synthase from S. solfataricus unambiguously establishes that while the active form of the enzyme is tetrameric, a dimeric form has been crystallized. A comparison with the tetrameric form of the E. coli enzyme suggests that rather large intramolecular movements accompany tetramerization.
