Mutations in ABC subfamily C member 6 (ABCC6) transporter are associated with pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE), a disease resulting in ectopic mineralization and affecting multiple tissues. Yanchao Ran, Aiping Zheng, and Patrick H Thibodeau published a paper entitled “Structural analysis reveals pathomechanisms associated with pseudoxanthoma elasticum-causing mutations in the ABCC6 transporter” in the Journal of Biological Chemistry to explore these mutations.  Crystallization screening of multiple proteins took place in the Crystallization Center with hits being optimized by the authors using sitting-drop vapor diffusion methods. Crystallographic data was collected on a Rigaku FR-E Superbright rotating anode source and Raxis HTC image plate.
