The iron-dependent superoxide dismutase from Mycobacterium tuberculosis has been crystallized by the hanging drop method. The crystals belong to the P21 space group and have unit cell dimensions of a = 68.5 Å, b = 85.6 Å, c = 66.5 Å, β = 99.8°. There are four molecules per asymmetric unit which, from analysis of data to 2.5 Å, appear to be related by non-crystallographic 222 symmetry.
