Figure 5

The sea urchin vault reconstruction at 33 Å resolution. (A) The full reconstruction, which reveals that the sea urchin vault has essentially the same exterior structure as rat and mouse vaults. (B and C) The reconstruction is shown cropped along two perpendicular axes to reveal the hollow interior. The crop planes are displayed with the strongest density in red and the weakest density in green. Note that the strongest density is in the "shoulder" region at the top and bottom of the central barrel section. The flat portion of one cap is indicated by an arrow in (B). The scale bar represents 100 Å.
