3D reconstructionDetails: Canonical alpha-helices were fitted into a cryo-EM structure of EmrE at 6Angstroms in-plane and 16Angstroms vertical resolution. The sequence segments were assigned based on biophysical and sequence data as elaborated in the principal citation. The orientation of each helix around its principal axis was set using evolutionary conservation, requiring that evolutionarily conserved positions be packed inside the core of the protein, whereas variable residues face the outside. A kink was introduced in helix C to fit a bend in the cryo-EM structure and according to sequence clues (see principal citation). A full description of potential inaccuracies in the model is presented in the principal citation. In brief, these include the following: the vertical positioning of the helices may be wrong by several Angstroms due to the low vertical resolution of the cryo-EM structure; the orientations of the helices around their principal axes may vary by about 20 degrees; the positions of backbone atoms on the terminal turns of each helix may not conform to alpha-helical ideality as assumed in the model structure.
Number of atoms included #LASTProtein: 624 / Nucleic acid: 0 / Ligand: 0 / Solvent: 0 / Total: 624
