Table 1 Amino acid residues at the inter-subunit interfaces of the pre-pore Cry4Aa trimer

From: Combined molecular dynamics and continuum solvent studies of the pre-pore Cry4Aa trimer suggest its stability in solution and how it may form pore

  1. Two groups of amino acid residues located at the inter-subunit interface of Cry4Aa monomers Mi and Mi+1 in Cry4Aa trimer where i and i+1 run in cyclic of 1, 2, and 3. aThe percentage of more than 100% was due to some residues were counted more than once because they were within two or more inter-subunit interfaces of Cry4Aa trimer. bResidues on the loop between α5 and α6. cResidue on the loop between α4 and α5.
