FIGURE 4. Conformations of the loops at the entrance to the active site. The loops in GlcCerase occur in a number of conformations, but only two are shown for clarity, in yellow and green; these conformations give the most pronounced changes in the entrance to the active site. Tyr-313, which may play a role in the catalytic mechanism, is indicated. The catalytic residues are shown as red sticks.
