Crystal structure of the N-terminal anticodon-binding domain of the nondiscriminating aspartyl-tRNA synthetase from Helicobacter pylori
The crystal structure of the N-terminal anticodon-binding domain of the nondiscriminating aspartyl-tRNA synthetase from the human pathogen H. pylori was determined at a resolution of 2.0 Å. Two important turns (78GAGL81 and 83NPKL86), along with the conserved Pro84, are proposed to play a crucial role in the recognition of tRNAAsp and tRNAAsn.
Expression and crystallographic studies of D-glycero-β-D-manno-heptose-1-phosphate adenylyltransferase from Burkholderia pseudomallei
D-glycero-β-D-manno-Heptose-1-phosphate adenylyltransferase (HldC) from B. pseudomallei has been cloned, expressed, purified and crystallized. Synchrotron X-ray data from a selenomethionine-substituted HldC crystal were collected to 2.8 Å resolution.
Crystallization of a fungal lytic polysaccharide monooxygenase expressed from glycoengineered Pichia pastoris for X-ray and neutron diffraction
Polysaccharide monooxygenase 2 from N. crassa was expressed from a glycoengineered strain of P. pastoris. Crystals of the protein bearing modified N-linked glycans showed improved X-ray diffraction at 100 K (1.20 Å resolution) and permitted room-temperature neutron diffraction data collection to 2.12 Å resolution.
