Figure 8. Simplified view show- ing the hydrogen bonding inter- actions of the ligand with the Arg triad and the catalytic residue Asp60. (a) A sulfate molecule sub- stitutes the carboxylate group of sialic acid in unliganded TrSA, and interacts with Asp60 through two water molecules. (b) Same view in the TrSA -- DANA complex and (c) in the TrSA -- NANA complex.
