    Bacterial ribonucleases (RNases) are considered to be potential anticancer agents. One of most important determinants of RNase cytotoxicity is the net charge of the molecule. In this work, a set of mutants of the RNase from Streptomyces aureofaciens (RNase Sa), differing in the net charge of the...

    Purified malate dehydrogenase (MDH) of Streptomyces aureofaciens was crystallized either in the absence or in the presence of NADH or NADPH coenzymes by hanging-drop vapour-diffusion method. An X-ray study has shown, that MDH crystals belong to space group C2221 with unit-cell parameters A =...

    Fe2+ and Mg distribution on octahedral M1 and M2 sites of the orthopyroxene structure is an indicator of the cooling rate and closure temperature of the mineral. It is generally obtained by single-crystal X-ray diffraction, which is limited in spatial resolution. In this work, we determine the...
