Abstract

We have obtained single crystals of a cloned mammalian adenosine deaminase (Mr = 41,000), a key enzyme in purine degradation and in normal development of the immune system, that are suitable for high-resolution structural analysis. The crystals belong to the space group C2 with unit cell parameters a = 101.68 A ̊ (1 A ̊ = 0.1 nm), b = 94.38 A ̊, c = 85.51 A ̊, and β = 96.54 °. The asymmetric unit contains two enzyme molecules.
