The crystal structure of an unliganded form of CTP synthase from S. solfataricus unambiguously establishes that while the active form of the enzyme is tetrameric, a dimeric form has been crystallized. A comparison with the tetrameric form of the E. coli enzyme suggests that rather large intramolecular movements accompany tetramerization.
