Figure 6

Model of interaction between lipase A and alginate from P . aeruginosa . Left: Lipase protein in presence of an inhibitor molecule in the active centre of the enzyme [37]. Furthermore, the co-factor molecule Ca2+ is indicated in green. Site chains of positively charged amino acids are shown in blue. Right: Section of an alginate molecule composed of negatively charged uronic acids in ball and stick representation. For better visibility the water in the reaction room is not shown (Redrawn from [9]).
