[…] X-ray diffraction data were collected at beamlines BL-5A and NW-12 of Photon Factory (Tsukuba, Japan) under cryogenic conditions with crystals soaked in a cryoprotectant solution containing 20% glycerol and cooled to 100 K in a nitrogen gas stream. The diffraction data were integrated and scaled with the HKL2000 program package []. Crystal structures were solved by the molecular replacement method using the program MOLREP [] with the published structure of ALG-2 (PDB ID 1HQV and 2ZN8) as a search model for des3-23ALG-2ΔGF122 and des3-20ALG-2F122A. All models were refined with the programs CNS [] and REFMAC5 in the CCP4 package []. Manual adjustments of the model were performed with COOT []. All of the structural figures were generated with PyMol (DeLano Scientific LLC, Palo Alto, CA). Rmsd was calculated with the program lsqkab in the CCP4 package []. Inter-helix angles and distances of EF-hand motifs were estimated by using vector geometry mapping (VGM) software [] downloaded from URL: http://calcium.uhnres.utoronto.ca/vgm/. […]
