Systematic approach to protein crystallization: emphasis on Vaccinia virus complement control protein (VCP)
MetadataShow full item record
This work examined the systematic approach to protein crystallization, exploring some of the techniques that have been developed to enhance the success rate of crystallization. The work was centered on two proteins; namely Vaccinia virus complement control protein (VCP) and glutamate dehydrogenase (GDH) from Bacteriodes fragilis. The crystal structures of the full lengthe native VCP and VCP bound to heparin had already been determined. In the same way, the structure of GDH from Bacteriodes fragilis is not known, even though structures of other GDHs from different organisms have been determined.
