  • 4-a  Amino acids are represented in single-letter code with position number shown. The first amino acid is that of the wild-type receptor, and the second is the one used for substitution, based on the corresponding amino acid in the human A2A receptor.

  • 4-b  Position on helix, using notation of van Rhee and Jacobson (1996).
