Found in tandem repeats of about 90 amino acids, the apple domain has six conserved cysteines arranged in three disulfide bonds: first to sixth, second to fifth, and third to fourth cysteines. The domain is aptly named for the two-dimensional representation generated when the disulfides are linked. In addition to the cysteines, there are a number of other conserved positions in the apple domain.
