Figure 1

Structure and molecular contact surfaces of Brd2 BD2. (A) Stereoview of the selected 20 structures of Brd2 BD2, superimposed on backbone atoms (N, C α and C'). (B) Ribbon representation of the average, energy-minimized structure with the secondary structure elements highlighted. The helix nomenclature follows that of hsP/CAF bromodomain [9]. (C) Contact surface emphasized surface hydrophobic potential (left) and surface electrostatic potential (right) at the acetyl-lysine binding site. Yellow denotes hydrophobic potential; red negative potential; and blue positive potential. (D) A clear view of showing the conserved or type conserved side chains lined the hydrophobic cavity, and denoting the negative-charged collar formed by residues D330, D338, D341, D385 and D387. A, B, C and D were produced with MOLMOL or PyMOL.
