The consequences upon mutations were clearly observed in the atomic density distribution plot. There was a significant change in density distribution in mutant as compared to the native. Native structure shows highest atomic density distribution of 41.9 nm-3 but in mutant (R326H & R356Q) structures showed 52.2 and 52.3 nm-3 respectively. It was further indicate that native has more flexibility than mutant (R326H & R356Q) structures.
