  1. a. Order parameters for transition states on the conformational closing pathways of the two complexes. The transition regions are shown in parentheses.
  2. b. Time required to transverse the transition region as obtained from the correlation function of each transition path sampling [see Additional file 1] (see additional figures 5 and 6).
  3. c. Free energy barriers ΔEAB and ΔEBAcomputed by performing umbrella sampling using the "BOLAS" program [34]. Detailed free energy plots for each transition are shown in [Additional file 1] (see additional figures 7 and 8).
  4. d. Rate constants for each transition estimated from equation
