Comments "A typical enzyme channel is ~20 Å long and its walls are made preferentially of histidine, arginine, tryptophan and tyrosine residues and, to a lesser extent, by phenylalanine, asparagine, and aspartic acid (Figure 1). These residues can be considered as gate-keepers controlling the entry to and from the active site."
