Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Horse heart and spleen feritins were subjected to crystallization experiments with polyethylene glycols. Crystals suitable for preliminary X-ray diffraction experiments were obtained from polyethylene glycol (6000 average Mr), under controlled conditions of pH and ionic strength. Heart ferritin crystallizes in space group F432, with unit cell edges a = b = c = 183 Å, with a single subunit in the crystallographic asymmetric unit.
