The iron protein from Azotobacter vinelandii nitrogenase has been crystallized in the reduced form. The needle-shaped crystals are in space group P2_12_12 (a = 94.6 Å, b = 179.9 Å, c = 74.1 Å) and diffract to at least 3.5-Å resolution. Five or six Fe-protein monomers are present in the asymmetric unit.
