[…] the wild type and l245p mutant over the whole simulation period., the secondary structure of the wild-type and p.l245p mutant system were determined by cd spectroscopy during 130 ns modeling using dichrocalc server []. cd spectroscopy is a well-established technique for measuring the secondary structure, dynamics, and folding pathways of proteins in the “far-uv” spectral region (190-250 nm); […]

[…] of force constants calculated ab initio for all combinations of main‐chain dihedral angles (in increments of 30°) for a di‐peptide., we now turn to the calculation (using a modified version of the dichrocalc software) of the diagonal elements of the hamiltonian and the change in frequency for each local mode due to the surrounding electrostatic environment. the electrostatic potential at site […]

[…] ch3oh, each with 1% acetic acid by volume, supplementary figure sa. predicted circular dichroism for native (1 ubq), partially and fully unfolded species described above were calculated using the dichrocalc web-interface [], shown in supplementary figure sb. analysis of secondary structure elements reveals that the partially unfolded structure appears to possess a significant disordered […]

[…] web servers, 3v server available at http://3vee.molmovdb.org/index.php with 1.4 å probe radius and vadar available at http://vadar.wishartlab.com/ .cd spectrum for the model was calculated using dichrocalc available at http://comp.chem.nottingham.ac.uk/dichrocalc/ ., subsequent to model building, the quaternary structure of the enzyme was also obtained in silico. it is known that the soluble […]

[…] of high-beta folds is a commonly known caveat of cd spectrum deconvolution algorithms. the results do show that recombinant human p2 is folded, as expected, into a mainly β-sheet structure., dichrocalc was used to calculate theoretical cd spectra from the experimental atomic coordinates. the srcd spectrum of human recombinant p2 was then compared with the back-calculated spectrum ().
