Experimentally determined lipocalin structures

DR Flower

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Twelve structures of distinct members of the lipocalin protein family have been solved experimentally. These structures have revolutionised our understanding of the properties of the lipocalins. Many more members of the family have been crystallised and now await structure solution. The number of solved lipocalin structures is steadily increasing, and with it increases our knowledge of this enigmatic and challenging protein family.
