Abstract Wheat germ agglutinin crystallizes in two monoclinic space groups, P 2 1 and C 2, under identical crystallization conditions. Unit cell dimensions are a = 73.8 A , b = 51.2 A , c = 90.8 A , γ = 90 ° for P2 1 ; a = 51.31 A , b = 73.35 A , c = 91.45 A , β = 97.75 ° for C 2, both with eight subunit molecules in the unit cell. The C 2 crystals were chosen as suitable for investigating the three-dimensional structure to high resolution, because of their smaller asymmetric unit (containing th...
