Pneumococcal surface adhesin A (PsaA) is docked to one of the two extracellular domains of an E-cadherin monomer. It is suspended in a box of water. The image is a snapshot that was taken using VMD. It shows the two proteins in cartoon representation, and calcium ions and a model metal ion as yellow and magenta spheres, respectively."
Doxorubicin is bound to the surface of a POPC: cholesterol (9:1) lipid bilayer. The image is looking onto the surface of the bilayer. Solvent is present above and below the bilayer, however for clarity the solvent above the surface has been removed in this image. The image is a snapshot that was taken using VMD. It shows doxorubicin in van der Waals representation (green), cholesterol as gold sticks, POPC head groups as small pink spheres and POPC tails as grey lines."
The image shows the structure of the proteins after molecular dynamics simulations of the proteins in a crystal lattice. The four replicates of the EPOR:EMP33 asymmetric unit (ASU) that make the unit cell are shown in green, orange, magenta and blue. The ASU are drawn as a ribbon backbone trace with a transparent surface overlay or as a cartoon with stylised secondary structures.
