Crystals of a 60-amino-acid C-terminal deletion mutant of the herpes simplex virus 1 single-stranded DNA binding protein, ICP8, have been grown by hanging drop vapor diffusion. The colorless crystals grow as thin plates to a maximum size of approximately 0.3 mm x 0.3 mm x 0.05 mm. The space group is P212121 with unit cell constants a 101.2 Å, b = 145.8 Å, and c = 162.9 Å. There are one or two molecules of ICP8 per asymmetric unit.
