Please Note: When MolSlides are exported to Jmol by this version of Protein Explorer, the molecular views are not yet always faithful to the originals in Protein Explorer, and some molecular view spaces will be blank. We expect that future releases of Protein Explorer and of Jmol will eventually provide faithful renderings in MolSlides exported to Jmol. If the renderings in Jmol are not satisfactory, please export your MolSlides to Chime.

Phytochrome Knot
shown as thicker backbone.

The backbone is colored with a rainbow sequence from the Amino to Carboxy ends. The ends are marked with balls. Conceptually, pulling on the ends would straighten the backbone, revealing the knot. The biliverdin chromophore is shown in ball-and-stick with a dot surface. The dotted line represents a portion of the backbone that could not be resolved due to crystallographic disorder.
