Abstract:

Mastoparans are tetradecapeptides found to be the major component of wasp venoms. These peptides possess a variety of biological activities. Three related mastoparans, mastoparan from Polistes jadwagae (MP-PJ), mastoparanX (MP-X) and its carboxyl-free C-terminal form (MP-X-COO-), were crystallized. X-ray diffraction data for them were collected at resolutions of 1.2 Å, 2.0 Å and 3.3 Å respectively.

Keywords: Crystallization, preliminary, X-ray diffraction, mastoparan toxins
