Complex of human somatotropin and the prolactin receptor (PDB entry 1bp3). Residues in the interface core are shown in orange, interface periphery in dark red, non-interface exposed surface in light blue and buried protein core in dark blue. Interaction types are coloured as follows: hydrogen bonds in dark blue; water mediated hydrogen bonds in light blue; π-cation interactions in pink; ionic interactions in pink; hydrophobic contacts in yellow; and van der Waals in red.
