An open reading frame designated b2910 (ygfE) in the Escherichia coli K12-MG1655 genome sequence, identified as a possible homologue to the cell-division protein ZapA, was cloned into the high-expression plasmid pETDuet-1 and overexpressed in E. coli BL21 (DE3)-AI. The protein was purified in three steps to 99% purity. Crystals were obtained by the hanging-drop vapour-diffusion method at 291 K from a wide range of screened conditions, but principally from solutions containing 0.1 M HEPES pH 7.0, 18% PEG 6000, 5 mM CaCl2. Diffraction data to 1.8 A were collected at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF). The crystals belong to space group P6(1)22 or P6(5)22, with unit-cell parameters a = 53.8, b = 53.8, c = 329.7 A, alpha = beta = 90, gamma = 120 degrees.
