Abstract

The three-dimensional structure of ferric myoglobin from the mollusc Aplysia limacina has been refined at 2.0 Å resolution. The crystallographic R factor, calculated at this stage, is 0.194. Despite its high content of apolar residues (both aromatic and aliphatic), Aplysia limacina myoglobin, which contains only one histidine residue (at the proximal position), has a structure that conforms to the common eight-helices globin fold observed in other phyla.
