- ↑ (Waiting for PubMed)
- ↑ Alpha carbons are spacefilled to a radius of 3.5 Å to make domains look solid. The van der Waals radius of carbon is 1.7 Å.
- ↑ Polar residues are Arg, Asn, Asp, Gln, Glu, His, Lys, Ser, Thr, Tyr. There are no Tyr or Trp lining the channel.
- ↑ 4.0 4.1 "Contacting" is defined as likely hydrogen bonds, plus likely apolar interactions. Likely hydrogen bonds: oxygens or nitrogens within 3.5 Å of oxygens or nitrogens in a neighboring monomer. Apolar interactions: carbons or sulfurs within 4.0 Å of carbons or sulfurs in a neighboring monomer.
- ↑ Contacting atoms are rendered at radius 3.1 Å. For comparison, the van der Waals radius of carbon is 1.7 Å.: A. Bondi, J. Phys. Chem. 68:441 (1964).
