Figure 1.


Two representations of the proteins analyzed by DOT. Plastocyanin (the stationary molecule) is on the left, cytochrome c on the right. The lower portion of the image shows the alpha carbon backbone of each protein and gives a good feel for the proteins' general shapes. The top part of the image shows a potential isosurface for each protein, displaying charge characteristics, with red negative and blue positive. Plastocyanin has a large negative lobe centered about tyrosine 83 (the pale red ring) and cytochrome c has a large positive lobe.
