Crystal structure of estrogen sulphotransferase

Nat Struct Biol. 1997 Nov;4(11):904-8. doi: 10.1038/nsb1197-904.


The structure of estrogen sulphotransferase has been solved in the presence of inactive cofactor PAP and substrate 17 beta-estradiol. This structure reveals structural similarities between cytosolic sulphotransferases and nucleotide kinases.
