alpha-Amylase isozymes 1 and 2 isolated from germinated barley seeds have been crystallized by the hanging- or sitting-drop vapor diffusion technique. Crystals of alpha-amylase 2 suitable for x-ray diffraction analysis were grown at pH 6.7 and 22 degrees C from a solution of 1 mM calcium chloride, 10 mM MES, and 16% saturated ammonium sulfate. The space group is trigonal P3121 (or P3221) with unit cell dimensions a = b = 135.20 A, c = 79.63 A, and probably two molecules per asymmetric unit.
