RipA is an important growth factor of M. tuberculosis. Its depletion produces decreasing bacterial growth and abnormal phenotype. RipA C-terminal fragment (263-472), containing its predicted catalytic domain has been successfully crystallized using vapor-diffusion methods. The structure has been solved by Multiwavelength Anomalous Dispersion and atomic resolution refinement is in progress.
