Isocitrate dehydrogenase from the thermophilic bacterium, Thermus thermophilus HB8, was crystallized by the vapor diffusion hanging drop method with polyethylene glycol 6000 as the precipitant. Pillar-like crystals of about 0.6×0.6×0.3 mm3 were obtained. Analysis of a series of oscillation photographs indicated that the orthorhombic crystals belonged to the I222 or I212121 space group with unit cell dimensions of a =100.1 Å, b=150.4 A, and c=87.4 Å. Intensity data were collected up to 2.5 Å resolution.
