Abstract: The crystal structure of human ubiquitin has been solved by x-ray diffraction methods and refined by standard procedures to a conventional crystallographic R factor of 0.176 at 1.8-A resolution (Vijay-Kumar, S., Bugg, C.E., and Cook, W.J. (1987) J. Mol. Biol. 194, 525-538). Crystals of yeast and oat ubiquitin have been grown using human ubiquitin crystals as seeds. Diffraction data for yeast and oat ubiquitin have been collected to a resolution of 1.9 and 1.8 A, respectively. Difference Fourier electron-density maps reveal that the structures of yeast and oat ubiquitin are quite similar to human ubiquitin. All the amino acid changes are clustered in two small patches on one surface of the molecule. This surface is probably not involved in conjugation with proteins destined for ATP-dependent proteolysis.FAU - Vijay-Kumar, .
