Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Two monomeric neurotoxic phospholipases A2 have been crystallized and their diffraction properties characterized. Crystals of caudoxin (from the venom of Bitis caudalis) and notexin (from the venom of Notechis scutatus scutatus) were grown at neutral pH, in the absence of calcium ion, and diffract to a resolution of 2.3 and 1.6 A, respectively.
