[…] provided at the last iteration of the aria 2.3 protocol were further manually verified by multiple steps of the structure refinement accomplished using the simulated annealing protocol of the cns 1.21 software package (60). structure refinement included a high-temperature torsion-angle molecular dynamics stage followed by a slow-cooling torsion-angle phase, a second slow-cooling phase […]

[…] structure refinement was performed until no noe violations >0.2 å and no dihedral angle violations higher than 5° occurred. the restraint violations and structure quality were assessed using the cns tools, procheck-nmr (62) and in-house software and utilities. at the last iteration of the refinement protocol 100 structures have been calculated using 1577 unambiguous distance and 199 dihedral […]

[…] with model quality assessment is complementary to using larger sequence databases and a more extensive folding procedure. table (10)225 (75)pcombc42 (21)179 (74)pcons18 (9)218 (91)cns-contact62 (13)232 (38)union114 (35)558 (143)all6379 (558)6379 (558), in table 5, it can be seen that the average length of the successfully predicted models is shorter than for the average length […]

[…] was used for visualization of spectra, resonance connectivity analysis, and distance restraints (noe) assignments. structure calculations were performed using an iterative procedure within the aria/cns suite of programs (brunger et al., 1998). the assessment of the quality of the nmr generated structural models, were performed using the protein structure validation suite (psvs, table 3; […]

[…] program package (otwinowski and minor, 1997) was used to index, integrate and scale the data. the structure of 353wt was solved by molecular replacement using the crystallography & nmr system (cns) (brunger, 2007; brünger et al., 1998) and the atomic coordinates of kif18amd (pdb: 3lre) as a search model. several rounds of iterative model building and refinement were performed using coot […]
