Crystallization and preliminary X-ray diffraction studies of BnSP-6, a myotoxic phospholipase A2 from Bothrops neuwiedi venom
MetadataShow full item record
BnSP-6 (myotoxin I) is a phospholipase A2 homologue isolated from Bothrops neuwiedi pauloensis venom. Crystals of BnSP-6 were obtained which diffracted X-rays to 2.5 Angstrom resolution using a synchrotron radiation source at room temperature and belong to space group P3(1)21. The unit cell dimensions are a=b=57.7, c=131.1 Angstrom. The structure was solved by molecular replacement using the coordinates of bothropstoxin I from B. jararacussu venom. There are two molecules in the asymmetric unit.
