Pig heart citrate synthase was crystallized from a small-molecule cocktail containing cystamine dihydrochloride, aspartame and benzamidine hydrochloride. The structure was refined to an R factor of 0.179 (R(free) = 0.222) using synchrotron data to a resolution of 1.78 A. The model includes the full-length protein, a chloride ion, a sulfate ion, 305 water molecules and an unexpected moiety attached through a disulfide linkage to Cys184, which was modeled as a half-cystamine molecule generated by disulfide exchange with the cystamine in the small-molecule cocktail.
