Homology models of Apl_AvBD2 and its mutants. The homology models revealed that the mutated amino acid residues were projected towards the 'claw' region (indicated by arrow) of the dimer and this may interfere its initial attachment with the bacterial cell membrane. The dotted area represents the substituted arginine residues.
