Crystal structure of shikimate kinase from Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MtSK) complexed with MgADP and shikimic acid (shikimate) has been determined at 2.3 Ã… resolution, clearly revealing the amino-acid residues involved in shikimate binding. This is the first three-dimensional structure of SK complexed with shikimate. The LID domain (residues 112-124) and shikimate binding domain (SB) (residues 33-61) are responsible for large conformational changes during catalysis.

crystallography

Group epimorphism


from Greek κρυσταλλος − (krustallos) ice, crystal + γραφειν (graphein) − to write

The branch of science devoted to the study of molecular and crystalline structure and properties, with far-reaching applications in mineralogy, chemistry, physics, mathematics, biology, metallurgy and materials science.
