Preparation, purification, crystallization and X-ray diffraction analysis of PicW2 from Picea wilsonii

PicW2 is a dehydrin protein and its expression is associated with hardiness to cold. To understand the mechanism of tolerance of low temperature, prokaryotically expressed PicW2 was purified using chitosan-affinity chromatography and gel filtration and crystallized using the vapour-diffusion method, and crystallographic information was obtained by X-ray diffraction.
