Abstract: Saccharomyces cerevisiae nTPx is a thioredoxin-dependent thiol peroxidase that is localized in the nucleus. nTPx belongs to the C-type atypical 2-Cys peroxiredoxin family members, which are frequently called BCPs or PrxQs. A double mutant (C107S/C112S) of nTPx overexpressed in Escherichia coli was spontaneously degraded upon freezing and thawing and its truncated form (residues 57-215; MW = 17837 Da) was crystallized with PEG 3350 and mercury(II) acetate as precipitants using the hanging-drop vapour-diffusion method. Diffraction data were collected to 1.8 A resolution using X-ray synchrotron radiation. The crystals belong to the trigonal space group P3(2), with unit-cell parameters a = b = 37.54, c = 83.26 A. The asymmetric unit contains one molecule of truncated mutant nTPx, with a corresponding VM of 1.91 A3 Da(-1) and a solvent content of 35.5%.
