Summary of the results of attempts to crystallize the two-subunit cytochrome c oxidase from the soil bacterium Paracoccus denitrificans using different detergents (after Ostermeier et al., 1997[link])

The resolutions of the crystals obtained are given in parentheses. Abbreviations: C12: dodecyl; C11: undecyl; C10: decyl; C9: nonyl; CYMAL-6: (cyclohexyl)hexyl-β-D-maltoside; CYMAL-5: (cyclohexyl)pentyl-β-D-maltoside. x in Ex is the number of oxyethylene units in the alkylpolyoxyethylene detergents. Suppliers: A: Anatrace (Maumee, OH); B: Biomol; C: Calbiochem; F: Fluka.
