Evolutionary Analysis Provides Insight Into the Origin and Adaptation of HCV

Front Microbiol
PMCID: 5938362
PMID: 29765366
DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2018.00854

[…] d and their results compared for consistency. Specifically, we used the PatchDock server () and imposed that the F37 residue in NS5A is located at the binding interface, as described (). We next used ClusPro (; ) without any assumption on the residues involved in binding. The best models from ClusPro and Patchdock were superimposed and revealed an almost identical binding pose. We next checked tha […]

A molecular dynamics study of adenylyl cyclase: The impact of ATP and G protein binding

PLoS One
PMCID: 5918993
PMID: 29694437
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0196207

[…] for the simulations. The starting conformations for the AC5+Gsα and the AC5+ATP+Gsα complexes were obtained by molecular docking starting from the homology models of isolated AC5 and of Gsα using the Cluspro webserver []. The resulting positions of Gsα were close to those observed in the 1AZS and 1CJK complexes (0.8–1.5 Å for the binding α-helix of Gsα and 2.3–2.6 Å for the full backbone), althoug […]


The IL 33 PIN1 IRAK M axis is critical for type 2 immunity in IL 33 induced allergic airway inflammation

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5913134
PMID: 29686383
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-03886-6

[…] Docking simulations were performed using the protein docking prediction server ClusPro ( ClusPro can simulate protein docking of oligomer forms, which was essential for the studies performed here,. The mutated IRAK-M residues (R56D and Y61E) were […]


An ecoimmunological approach to study evolutionary and ancient links between coagulation, complement and Innate immunity

PMCID: 5955456
PMID: 29473457
DOI: 10.1080/21505594.2018.1441589

[…] ame structure was energy minimized similarly to the last step of the initial minimization without any positional constraints.The obtained peptide structure was then docked without restraints with the ClusPro 2.0 protein-protein docking tool [, ] to the human IgG1 crystal structures that were retrieved from the Protein Data Bank (PDB; Both the separate Fc domain (PDB ID: 4W4N; re […]


Protein docking refinement by convex underestimation in the low dimensional subspace of encounter complexes

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5955889

[…] ape complementarity, making them relatively easier cases. In fact, considering a wide spectrum of docking test cases in terms of difficulty, enables us to examine the performance gain compared to the ClusPro server in different scenarios. Moreover, other types of complexes present an opportunity to evaluate the effect of the density based clustering component built into SSDU where fitting multiple […]
