Different oligomeric states of KLH2 (a-e) and Leptoxis carinata hemocyanin (a'-e'). (a-d; a'-d') Class sum images of negatively stained single particles collected from electron micrographs. (e, e') 3D models shown as longitudinal section through the cylinder wall to reveal the fundamentally different collar complexes. Note that the flattening effect is more obvious in KLH2 (upper panel).
