abstract

  • Recombinant homoserine dehydrogenase from Saccharomyces cerevisiae has been crystallized in three different forms. Crystals of the apo-enzyme belong to the tetragonal space group P4 and have unit-cell-dimensions a = b = 130 and c = 240 A. The resolution limit for these crystals is 3.9 A. Crystals of homoserine dehydrogenase grown in the presence of the co-factor NAD+ have the tetragonal space group P41212 or its enantiomorph P43212. The unit-cell dimensions for these crystals are a = b = 80.4 and c = 250.2 A, and the observed resolution limit is 2.2 A. Protein crystals grown in the presence of the product L-homoserine and the inert NAD+ analogue 3-aminopyridine adenine dinucleotide belong to the monoclinic space group P21 with unit-cell parameters a = 58.8, b = 104.2, c = 120.7 A, beta = 91.9 degrees. This last crystal form has a diffraction limit of 2.7 A resolution.
