Force Transduction and Lipid Binding in MscL: A Continuum-Molecular Approach

Figure 1

MscL structure.

Cartoon representation (alpha-helices shown as cylinders) of the pentameric structure of MscL. A single monomer is highlighted in blue showing the N-terminal S1 helix, the first trans-membrane helix (TM1), the periplasmic loop, the second trans-membrane helix (TM2), and the C-terminal helical bundle.
