    Protein Summary

    This target is annonated as a hypothetical protein. However, it could be an Amino-transferase based on the homology with a number of structures. Some of these are shown below with this structure in green and 1vp4 (cyan), 1wst (magenta), 1x0m (yellow), 2dtv (pink), 2egy (grey), 2zc0 (blue), 2zg5 (orange).


    Most of these homologs have PLP bound to them. But, this protein does not show clear density to model PLP in it. However, there is some residual density corresponding to the phosphate moity of the PLP. A phosphate molecule has been modeled in this density (not shown). A closer look between this target and 1vp4 highlights the conservation of residues in the PLP binding site, in the figure below with this target depicted in green and 1vp4 in cyan.



    The protein assembles as a dimer in the crystal structure and could represent its natural oligomeric state.




    A search of PFAM also provides support for the protein to be annotated as an Amino-transferase:
