The DNA-cro-repressor complex crystals have been obtained, five DNA fragments of the same nucleotide sequence and different length being used. The rotation function for crystals of complexes with hexamer (pGpT)3 . (pApC)3 and with octamer (pGpT)3 . (pApC)3 have been calculated. The order of cro-DNA complex crystals is shown to vary with DNA length, the crystal of the complex with octamer being the most perfect among all investigated complexes.
