Figure 3
The active site of LdtMt2. The lid covering the active site formed by a pair of antiparallel [beta]-strands and their connecting loop (residues 298-324) is shown in red. The active-site residues Cys354 and His336 are depicted as green sticks. The bulky hydrophobic residues of the lid (Tyr298, Tyr308 and Tyr318) and its surroundings (Tyr330, Phe334 and Trp340), shown as red and orange sticks, respectively, limit access to and contribute to the closure of the active site.  [article HTML]
