Structural models for the ETR1 homodimer were generated with AlphaFold-Multimer. Coppers were modeled under two potential coordinations involving Cys65 and His69 of the ETR1 homodimer, one in which the two coppers are bound independently and do not share an interaction with each other, and another where they are closely bonded.
