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 the atomic coordinates are available in the protein data bank with access code 5O1S: www.rcsb.org/structure/5O1S
Model of DMF inhibition. Schematic figure of the activation loop transition between inactive and activated state of the C-terminal kinase domain (consisting of the ATP binding domain and the helix bundle domain). DMF targets an allosteric site and blocks kinase activation, and vice versa. Figure: Jacob Lauwring Andersen
