Advances in Studies on Nitrogenase Crystallography

ZHAO Jian-Feng, ZHOU Hui-Na, ZHAO Ying, BIAN Shao-Min, HUANG Ju-Fu   


The function of biomacromolecule is dependent on its space structure. X-ray diffraction analysis is generally an important way to obtain structural information of biomacromolecules. Here, the main advances in the growth and X-ray diffraction analysis of nitrogenase crystals are briefly introduced and reviewed. At last, the challenge and prospect of nitrogenase crystallography are discussed.

Key words: nitrogenase, crystal growth, crystallographic struatural analysis
