Here is the backbone of lysozyme. The epitope which binds to
IgG1-kappa D1.3 is thickened. In another view (not shown) it can be
seen that the epitope forms a relatively flat surface. Notice how the
epitope is discontinuous, that is, made up of loops of the protein
which are proximal in the native structure, but are not sequential
in the amino acid sequence. This image uses RasMol's "group" coloring
scheme, in which the backbone is colored in rainbow sequence from
one end to the other.
This image was constructed from images in a
RasMol "movie" script.
