Fig. 3. Superimposition of the structures of rice BGlu1 (green), linamarase from Trifolium repens (1CBG, yellow), Zea mays β-glucosidase isozyme I (1E1E, blue), and Paenibacillus polymyxa β-glucosidase BglB (2JIE, pink). Loops A–D, which constitute the doorway to the active site are expanded to the side, as indicated by the arrows, to show the differences in loop structures. Sorghum bicolor dhurrinase isozyme I (1V02) and Synapis alba myrosinase (1MYR) were similarly superimposed, but are not shown for the sake of clarity.
