Figure 5

Binding interfaces of the DBP-RII∶DARC heterotetramer.

(A) Global view of the DBP-RII∶DARC heterotetramer, showing (B) the DBP-RII homodimeric interface, (C) DARC monomer A interactions, and (D) DARC monomer B interactions. DARC monomer A is in purple, DARC monomer B is in blue, DBP-RII monomer 1 is in green and DBP-RII monomer 2 is in yellow. Residue numbers are labeled and DARC residue labels are underlined.
