Fig. 5. Electrostatic and solvent-accessible surface representation of CAIII in stereo. Dark gray coloration represents a positive charge, light gray a negative charge and white a neutral charge. The position of S^γ of the GSH adducts are indicated by white balls. The lower portion of the figure shows the electrostatic surface of CAIII when the cysteines are in conformation 1. This is the same conformation as that of the reduced bovine CAIII model [21]. The upper portion of the figure shows the surface when Cys183 is in conformation 2. The electrostatic and surface calculations were carried out using MolMol [28], which utilizes the algorithm of Nicholls and Honig [29].
