A new crystal form of the histone octamer, crystallized in 1.6 M KCl, 1.6 M phosphate, diffracts to appreciably better than 2.6 Å resolution. The crystals have space group P61 or P65 and lattice parameters a = b = 158.29, c = 103.27 Å, α = β = 90, γ = 120°, with one molecule per asymmetric unit. The new crystals promise to yield more detail of the histone basic domains and a higher resolution structure for the histone octamer.
