Abstract

Crystals of the bacteriophage λ Cro repressor protein that are suitable for X-ray diffraction studies have been obtained. Preliminary crystallographic analysis reveals that the space group is R32, the cell dimensions in the hexagonal system are a = b = 91·9 A ̊, c = 268·9 A ̊, and there are three dimers per asymmetric unit.
