Modeled structures of XIs from P. acidipropionici (I), Piromyces sp., (II), and Orpinomyces sp. (III). [a]: XI monomeric structures, the hydrophobic residues are represented in green and the non-hydrophobic regions in white. [b]: XI tetrameric structures with hydrophobic regions in white surface. [c]: representation of the XI tetrameric structure from P. acidipropionici emphasizing the presence of hydrophobic amino acids (white surface in the right box) throughout the region connecting the monomers for the tetrameric structure formation
