Coxsackievirus A9 has been crystallized as small rhombic dodecahedra of maximum dimension 0.3 mm. These crystals have been shown, using synchrotron radiation, to diffract X-rays to beyond 3 A, and to have a stability in the beam comparable to that of other related virus crystals. The unit cell is tetragonal with dimensions a = b = 495 A, c = 695 A and alpha = beta = gamma = 90 degrees, with a space group of P4n22. A substantial body of diffraction data has been collected and this crystal form appears to be suitable for structure determination. Phasing of these data will be attempted using molecular replacement.
