Phage-display-generated Fab fragments as crystallization chaperones: the structure of the KcsA channel in the closed conformation in complex with a synthetic Fab (PDB code 3eff ; Uysal et al., 2009[link]). (a) A diagram showing how the Fab binds to the cytosolic portion in reference to the transmembrane domain. (b) The crystal structure of the complex showing how the synthetic Fab molecules mediate the major crystal contacts. (Figure courtesy of Dr Anthony Kossiakoff, University of Chicago.)
