The predicted structure of an LRR domain resulting from the threading of the LRR domain of Arabidopsis RPS5 onto bovine decorin (PDB code 1xku). (a) A cartoon representation of the predicted structure of the RPS5 LRR domain generated using PyMol . The β-sheets forming the concave face of the 'horseshoe' are represented as arrows. The conserved aliphatic residues are shown in blue. N, amino terminus; C, carboxyl terminus. (b) Alignment of the 12 leucine-rich repeats in decorin and the 13 repeats in RPS5 as well as the amino terminal nine amino acids. The conserved aliphatic residues are shown in blue.
