Multi-Domain Contact Map example. 13 Å contact map for protein 1KJQA which contains three domains. The three domains are clearly ° distinguishable in the true contact map as the areas with most of the contacting residues pairs. The SCOP definition of the domains for this protein is: domain 1 = residues 1–111, domain 2 = residues 112–317 and domain 3 = residues 318 391. The bounding boxes for each of the domains are labeled. Notice there are a smaller number of contacts that are not part of the domains indicating domain-domain interactions.
