Crystal Structure Analysis

Molecular model of amino acid tyrosine overlaid on photograph of xray diffractometer.

Molecular model of the amino acid tyrosine with experimental electron density in front of an X-ray diffractometer at MIT. The tyrosine is part of the crystal structure of phosphoglycerate mutase from M. tuberculosis. See Mueller, P., et al. Acta Cryst D61 (2005): 309-315. (Figure and photograph by Dr. Peter Mueller.)
