Abstract

A new crystal form of abrin-a from the seeds of Abrus precatorius has been obtained by vapor diffusion method. The abrin-a crystals belong to monoclinic space group P21 with cell dimensions a = 84.58 Å, b = 73.07 Å, c = 48.23 Å, β = 96.20°. An asymmetric unit contains one protein molecule of molecular weight 65 kDa and has a solvent content of approximately 46%.
