Atomic Coordinate File 3HLA
This file contains the papain-solubilized fragment of human HLA-A2 class I MHC. This was the first MHC molecule whose structure was determined (by X-ray crystallography; Bjorkman, Saper, Samraoui, Bennett, Strominger, and Wiley, Nature @@:@@@, 1987). The protein was prepared from the EBV B lymphocyte cell line JY (which is from an individual homozygous at both HLA-A and HLA-B), and contained a mixture of peptides; hence, no peptide amino acids are resolved.
