Figure 3

Interaction between alisol B 23-acetate and HMG-CoA reductase. (a) Overall pattern of interaction (alisol B 23-acetate is denoted by a bar chart). (b) Hydrogen bond graph of alisol B 23-acetate with Lys691 and Asp767 (the hydrogen bond is denoted by a dotted line). (c) Stacking chart of alisol B 23-acetate before and after docking (the initial structure is shown in green and the structure after docking is shown in purple). (d) Initial angle of alisol B 23-acetate C2–C10–C19 and C10–C19–C20. (e) Initial dihedral angle of alisol B 23-acetate C2–C10–C19–C20. (f) The angle of alisol B 23-acetate C2–C10–C19 and C10–C19–C20 after stacking. (g) The dihedral angle of alisol B 23-acetate C2–C10–C19–C20 after stacking. (h) Hydrophobic interface of the alisol B 23-acetate side chain and the peripheral amino acid residues after stacking (alisol B 23-acetate is denoted by yellow bars). (i) Hydrophilic interface of the alisol B 23-acetate side chain and the peripheral amino acid residues after stacking (alisol B 23-acetate is denoted by yellow bars).
