Kinetic and structural analysis of mutant CD4 receptors that are defective in HIV gp120 binding

Wu H*, Myszda D G*, Tendian S W, Brouillette C G, Sweet R W, Chaiken I M, Hendrickson W A.  PNAS (1996). PDF

The T-cell antigen coreceptor CD4 also serves as the receptor for the envelope glycoprotein gp120 of HIV. Extensive mutational analysis of CD4 has implicated residues from a portion of the extracellular amino-terminal domain (D1) in gp120 binding. However, none of these proteins has been fully characterized... Read More

Structure of human chorionic gonadotropin at 2.6 Å resolution from MAD analysis of the selenomethionyl protein

Wu H, Lustbader J, Liu Y, Canfield R, Hendrickson W†. Structure (1994). PDF

Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a glycoprotein hormone secreted by the placenta during the early weeks of pregnancy [1]. It stimulates the ovarian corpus luteum to produce progesterone until the placenta itself acquires the ability to produce this pregnancy sustaining steroid. Excess hCG is excreted... Read More
