Suramin is a highly charged polysulfonated napthylurea that interferes in a number of physiologically relevant processes such as myotoxicity, blood coagulation and several kinds of cancers. This synthetic compound was complexed with a myotoxic Lys49 PLA(2) from Bothrops asper venom and crystallized by the hanging-drop vapor diffusion method at 18 degreesC. The crystals belong to the orthorhombic space group P2(1)2(1)2(1), with unit cell parameters a=49.05, b=63.84 and c=85.67 Angstrom, Diffraction data was collected to 1.78 Angstrom.
