In silico structural and functional prediction of African swine fever virus protein B263R reveals features of a TATA binding protein

PMCID: 5825884
PMID: 29492339
DOI: 10.7717/peerj.4396

[…] ment was performed for pB263R model 1a, and the 10 highest-ranked structural analogs of the predicted model were identified with the RaptorX structure alignment server at ( and visualized using JalView v.2.10.1 () to infer function and identify conserved residues. GO terms () predicted with the I-TASSER server were used to infer the pB263R model 1a fun […]


Hydrogen Bond Variations of Influenza A Viruses During Adaptation in Human

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5662722
PMID: 29085020
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-14533-3

[…] eter. Structure based sequence alignment for HA described in literature was used. As for NA, crystal structures of N1 to N9 were downloaded from PDB database and aligned with structure alignment tool DeepAlign. […]


A Systematic Analysis of the Structures of Heterologously Expressed Proteins and Those from Their Native Hosts in the RCSB PDB Archive

PLoS One
PMCID: 4982684
PMID: 27517583
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0161254
call_split See protocol

[…] There are many excellent servers available for protein structure comparisons, including CE [], FATCAT-flexible [], TM-align [], DALI [], VAST [], STRUCTAL [] and DeepAlign [], more information and the details of each method can found in systematic review [, ]. In the current work, only three widely used methods (CE, FATCAT-flexible and TM-align) were employed […]


Human Cytomegalovirus gH/gL Forms a Stable Complex with the Fusion Protein gB in Virions

PLoS Pathog
PMCID: 4833381
PMID: 27082872
DOI: 10.1371/journal.ppat.1005564

[…] gL structures. Our rough predictions of the structures of HCMV TR gH/gL involved comparisons to HSV-1 and EBV gH/gL sequences using the RaptorX Structure alignment server ( This produced a crude 3D structure of HCMV gH/gL that was used along with primary sequence alignments between HCMV, HSV-1, and EBV gH/gL molecules [] to design mutations in HCMV gH/gL that […]


Identification and classification of small molecule kinases: insights into substrate recognition and specificity

BMC Evol Biol
PMCID: 4702295
PMID: 26738562
DOI: 10.1186/s12862-015-0576-x

[…] ctural alignment (PDB ids are given in Fig. ). Pairwise structural alignments of each ELK and EPK representative PDB structure with Rio kinase (pdbid : 1zp9) were generated using MASS [], Matt [] and DeepAlign []. Secondary structure elements and Hanks and Hunter subdomain motifs were aligned manually. These structural and motif landmarks ensured correct placement of intervening regions despite th […]


Proton currents constrain structural models of voltage sensor activation

PMCID: 5065317
PMID: 27572256
DOI: 10.7554/eLife.18017.029

[…] angevin piston. 2 fs time steps were used. All analysis was carried out in VMD1.9.2. Protein structures were aligned using MultiSeq STAMP () implemented in VMD1.9.2; structures in were aligned using DeepAlign ( Structural comparisons to Hv1 FL were conducted on chain A of the dimer, which is not identical to chain B (). Coordinates for Ci VSDU (pdb: […]

DeepAlign institution(s)
Provides automatic protein structure alignment. DeepAlign uses amino acid and local substructure substitution matrices, which are derived from evolutionarily-related protein pairs, and generate alignments highly consistent with manually-curated alignments. The interest of this method lies in its scoring function, which considering not only 3D geometric similarity, but also evolutionary information at the sequence and local substructure levels as well as hydrogen bonding similarity.
DeepAlign funding source(s)
Supported by the National Institutes of Health grant R01GM089753, the National Science Foundation grant DBI-0960390 and the National Science Foundation CAREER award CCF-1149811.
