Sample components

Entire GCN4-Kar3Vik1 bound to microtubules in the AMP-PNP state

EntireName: GCN4-Kar3Vik1 bound to microtubules in the AMP-PNP state
Details: GCN4-Kar3Vik1 was incubated with the non-hydrolyzable ATP analog AMP-PNP to trap the motor in the ATP-state conformation.
Number of components: 2
Oligomeric State: One heterodimer of Kar3Vik1 binds to one heterodimer of alpha-beta tubulin

Component #1: protein, GCN4-Kar3Vik1

ProteinName: GCN4-Kar3Vik1 / Oligomeric Details: Heterodimer
Details: This truncated version of Kar3Vik1 contains the complete C-terminal globular domains as well as two and a half heptads of the native coiled coil. The GCN4 leucine zipper sequence was added to the N-terminus to initialize dimerization.
Number of Copies: 1 / Recombinant expression: Yes

Helical parametersAxial symmetry: C1 (asymmetric) / Hand: LEFT HANDED / Delta z: 10.666 Å / Delta phi: 24 deg.
Sample solutionSpecimen conc.: 0.7 mg/ml
Buffer solution: 20mM HEPES, 5mM magnesium acetate, 50mM potassium acetate, 0.1mM EDTA, 0.1mM EGTA, 1mM DTT
pH: 7.2
Support filmC-flat 200 mesh copper grid with holey carbon film.
VitrificationInstrument: HOMEMADE PLUNGER / Cryogen name: ETHANE / Temperature: 93 K
Method: 5 uL of 0.41 mg/mL microtubules was adsorbed to a grid for 45 seconds. Excess liquid was blotted away and immediately 5 uL of 0.70 mg/mL Kar3Vik1 complexed with AMP-PNP was added to the microtubules for 2 minutes. Excess liquid was blotted for approximately 2.5 seconds prior to plunging.
Details: Vitrification carried out at room temperature

About Yorodumi


Jul 12, 2017. Major update of PDB

Major update of PDB

  • wwPDB released updated PDB data conforming to the new PDBx/mmCIF dictionary. This is a major update changing the version number from 4 to 5, and with Remediation, in which all the entries are updated. See below links for details.
  • In this update, many items about electron microscopy experimental information are reorganized (e.g. em_software). Now, EM Navigator and Yorodumi are based on the updated data.
