We report a refinement in implicit water of the previously published solution structure of the Grb7-SH2 domain bound to the erbB2 receptor peptide pY1139. Structure quality measures indicate substantial improvement, with residues in the most favored regions of the Ramachandran plot increasing by 14 % and with WHAT IF statistics (Vriend, G. J. Mol. Graph., 1990, 8(1), 52-56) falling closer to expected values for well-refined structures.
