Crystal structure of rofecoxib bound to human cyclooxygenase‐2

  •  772-776
  •  6 October 2016

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

New crystallization conditions were identified that allowed the structure determination of human cyclooxygenase-2 in complex with rofecoxib (Vioxx) and the structure was subsequently determined to 2.7 Å resolution.
