Phospholipid transfer protein from maize seedlings has been crystallized using trisodium citrate as precipitant. The crystal belongs to the orthorhombic space group P212121 with unit cell dimensions of a = 24.46 Å, b = 49.97 Å, and c = 69.99 Å. The presence of one molecule in the asymmetric unit gives a crystal volume per protein mass (Vm) of 2.36 Å 3/Da and a solvent content of 48% by volume. The X‐ray diffraction pattern extends at least to 1.6 Å Bragg spacing when exposed to both CuKα and synchrotron X‐rays. A set of X‐ray data to approximately 1.9 Å Bragg spacing has been collected from a native crystal. © 1994 Wiley‐Liss, Inc.
