4HWV: Structure Of Pectate Lyase From Acidovorax Avenae Subsp Citrulli
Proteins (2013) 81 p.1485-1490
Pectates lyase (Pel) plays an important role in bacteria pathogenicity. The crystal structure of Pel from Acidovorax citrulli (AcPel) has been solved to 1.37 A resolution. AcPel belongs to the polysaccharide lyase family 1 (PL1), which has a characteristic right-handed beta-helix fold. AcPel is similar with other Pels in the PL1 family, but also shows some differences at the substrate binding site.
