[…] Amino acid sequence of L. donovani 60sRL23a (Uniprot id: D1M863) was used for homology modeling. The Hidden Markov model based profile-profile alignment algorithm available at HHpred server on the bioinformatics toolkit platform of the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology ( was used to find best template in PDB database for homology modeling with default settings . HHpred uses HMM based profile-profile alignment method for identification and alignment of homologous protein. After ensuring high degree of accuracy in alignment, ten homology models were built using Modeller 9.10 with thorough optimization . Final model was selected on the basis of DOPE score and structural validations were performed by using SAVS server. ( […]
