Extended Data Figure 5: Electrostatic potential representation of the LptD–LptE complex.

From: Structural basis for lipopolysaccharide insertion in the bacterial outer membrane

Extended Data Figure 5

a, Electrostatic surface of the LptD–LptE complex (side view). The hydrophobic girdle indicates the membrane-bound region, and this was verified by the presence of the expected aromatic belts. b, c, Periplasmic view of the interior surface properties of LptD–LptE complex (b) and that of LptD–LptE complex with LptD_NT domain removed (c). The interior surface of the complex is fairly hydrophilic with evenly distributed hydrophobic and hydrophilic residues lining inside.
