Crystal structures of human tankyrase I in complex with small-molecule inhibitors PJ34 and XAV939 have been determined, both to 2.0 Å. The TNKS1-PJ34 system allows for displacement soaking and, therefore, is an ideal system for structure-based drug design.

The interleukin-2 tyrosine kinase Src homology 2 domain was crystallized and its structure was solved to 2.35 Å resolution. The structure reveals a domain-swapped dimer that is related to other dimeric SH2 domains solved previously. The cistrans-prolyl isomerization that is evident from solution studies of Itk SH2 cannot be observed in the crystal structure.
