Notes and References

  1. (Waiting for PubMed)
  2. 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.
  3. Polar residues are Arg, Asn, Asp, Gln, Glu, His, Lys, Ser, Thr, Tyr. There are no Tyr or Trp lining the channel.
  4. 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.
  5. 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).
