Structure of myristoylated MMTV MA. a The amino acid sequence of MMTV MA with a C-terminal His-tag. The N-terminal glycine is designated as residue 2. C-terminal residues lacking detectable positions on the electron density map and therefore not involved in the structure below (20 C-terminal residues) are shown in italics. Individual sequences representing helices 1–6 are indicated with correspondingly colored lines. b Cartoon diagram illustrating the helical arrangement of the MA monomer with two possible orientations of the myristoyl group: sequestered (myr1A) and exposed (myr1B)
