Structural representation of the crystal structure of the protein kinase RSK2 (grey surface) in complex with the drug dimethyl fumarate (yellow spheres). The light blue spheres represent water molecules bound to the protein structure that are also revealed from the crystal structure. The structure was determined at 1.9 Å resolution and is available in the protein data bank. PDB access code 5O1S is to be found at the bottom of the page.
