A [2F_{o} - F_{c}] electron-density map contoured at the 1.2σ level shows a distinct ellipsoidal density for acetonitrile 707 and a spherical density for a nearby water molecule. The protein backbone of the binding pocket is represented with nitrogen atoms shown in dark grey, oxygen atoms in medium grey and carbons in a lighter grey. MOLSCRIPT (Kraulis, 1991[link]) was used in the preparation of this figure. Reprinted with permission from Allen et al. (1996)[link]. Copyright (1996) American Chemical Society.
