  1. All MM are given in kDa. "MMCalc" is the MM calculated from the amino-acid sequence, "GF" stands for gel filtration, "DLS" stands for Dynamic Light Scattering, "BN-PAGE" stands for Blue Native-PAGE. The oligomeric state is deduced from the comparison between MMCalc and the experimental MM as determined by the other approaches. "ND" stands for non-determined.
