Metabolic Enzyme Beta-galactosidase
|Title:||Metabolic Enzyme Beta-galactosidase|
A team from Dr. Sriram Subramaniam's lab at NCI's Center for Cancer Research used high-resolution cryo-electron microscopy to create this 2.2 angstrom resolution electrondensity map of beta-galactosidase. An essential enzyme in the human body, beta-galactosidase is commonly used in molecular biology as a marker to monitor the expression of genes. The map is colored by protein subunit. As of October 2015 it is the highest resolution structure determined by single-particle cryo-EM to date.
