    Protein Summary

    Pfam update: SnoaL_2 family,  PF12680.

    This is a protein of unknown function.

    It is a monomer in the asymmetric unit of the unit cell in the crystal structure:


    Crystal lattice packing analysis suggests that the stable oligomeric form in solution should be a dimer. Analytical size exclusion chromatography in combination with static light scattering support the assignment of a dimer as the significant oligomeric form in solution:


    An unidentified ligand (UNL) has been modeled in what appears to be the putative active site surrounded by the residues Cys129 (blue) and Phe109, His47, His57, Phe44, Phe103, Glu105, Tyr98 and Val66:


    The UNL in a Fo-Fc map at 3.0 sigma (green) calculated by omitting the ligand (2Fo-Fc map in blue at 1.0 sigma) shows the fit of the  ligand in the electron density:


    Other proteins of similar structure (using the Protein structure comparison service SSM at European Bioinformatics Institute (http://www.ebi.ac.uk/msd-srv/ssm), authored by E. Krissinel and K. Henrick) are various other NTF2-like proteins with the most similar being the NTF2-like protein of unknown function from C. hutchinsonii (PDB id 2r4i) with a Q-score of 0.83, rmsd=1.21A and 33% sequence identity over 117 Calpha residues, also solved by the JCSG, Topsan

    Based on the structure, Cys129 is likely to be involved in the biochemistry of this protein.
