Abstract

Protein crystallization in vivo provides some fascinating examples of biological self-assembly. Here, we provide a selective survey to show the diversity of functions for which protein crystals are used, and the physical properties of the crystals that are exploited. Where known, we emphasize how the nature of the protein-protein interactions lead to control of the crystallization behaviour. (C) 2005 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
