We can get a better look at the helices and beta sheets. Click
here to see the beta sheets. The YELLOW
sheets are anti-parallel while the
MAGENTA sheets are parallel. To see the helices,
shown in VIOLET, click
here. Within the C domain is a double beta-alpha-beta motif. This is a motif shared with TyrOH,
TrpOH, and phosphoglycerate dehydrogenase, involved in serine biosynthesis
(see previous assignments for more about similar proteins) (Kobe et al. 1999).
Now lets look just at the N regulatory terminus by clicking here. The BLUE N terminus (19-33) region is regulatory region for the C domain active sites. To see the regulatory sequence interact with the C domain active site, click here (Kobe et al. 1999).
