Abstract

Monellin belongs to a new class of proteins that have intensely sweet taste. We report here the results of crystallization of this protein and crystallographic parameters of the monellin crystals; space group is P21; the cell parameters are 39.1 X 71.5 X 86.9 A with beta = 107.6 degrees; and there are 4 monellin molecules/asymmetric unit.
