Crystallization of the purine salvage enzyme adenine phosphoribosyltransferase
Adenine phosphoribosyltransferase from the protozoan parasite Leishmania donovani has been crystallized in the presence of the substrate Mg2+ -α- D-5-phosphoribosyl-1-pyrophosphate (PRPP) or the product adenosine-5- monophosphate, as well as in the absence of ligand. These crystals belong to the space group P6122 or its enantiomorph P6522, with unit cell dimensions of a = b = 64.0 Å, c = 240.5 Å, α = β = 90°, and γ = 120°. The crystals diffract to 1.9 Å.
