    Three-dimensional homology model of the MR LBD. (A) Overall structure of the MR LBD, α-helices are drawn as ribbons and β-strands as arrows. Aldosterone is inserted into the ligand-binding pocket (carbon atoms are in white and oxygen atoms in red). (B) Linear scheme indicating amino acids of the MR LBD-contacting aldosterone. Hydrogen bonds are depicted as arrows, van der Waals contacts as dashed lines. W, water molecule.
