Figure 5: HP2 displays enhanced local flexibility.

From: Coupled binding mechanism of three sodium ions and aspartate in the glutamate transporter homologue GltTk

Figure 5

Comparison of the protein atomic fluctuations averaged per residue in the presence/absence of the ligands in the binding site. Data was averaged from 100‚ÄČns MD simulations. The HP2 residues (in orange) involved in the gate opening showed enhanced local flexibility without the ligands (See also Supplementary Fig. 5 for RMSD values of the backbone).
