Figure 5.

The predicted tertiary protein structure of mtMutS and its similarity to predicted and experimentally determined MutS structures. (A) The predicted monomer structure of the mtMutS protein, as determined by the I-TASSER database. (B) The predicted monomer structure of the HNH-containing Acanthamoeba polyphaga mimiviral MutS protein. (C) The crystal structure of a monomer of MutS from E. coli, as determined by [36]. Colours correspond to the domains identified in Figure 4: Red = Domain I, Blue = Domain III, Yellow = Domain V, Green = HNH endonuclease domain.
