FATCAT citations


Evolutionary convergence in the biosyntheses of the imidazole moieties of histidine and purines

PLoS One
PMCID: 5919458
PMID: 29698445
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0196349

[…] Visualization and analysis of protein structures were performed using the PyMol package []. Structure comparisons were performed using the FATCAT algorithm [] included in the protein comparison tool of the Protein Data Bank (PDB) web server. DaliLite v3 was used to search for structural related proteins []. […]


Transposase DNA Complex Structures Reveal Mechanisms for Conjugative Transposition of Antibiotic Resistance

PMCID: 5871717
PMID: 29551265
DOI: 10.1016/j.cell.2018.02.032

[…] scribed in (). First, Int82N tetramers were assembled by superposing individual protein domains onto λInt–COC’ post-cleavage synaptic complex structure (PDB: 1z19) by rigid structural alignment using FATCAT (). Flexible parts that could not be aligned, including the β-hairpin insertion, were isolated and modeled separately with Phyre2 (). As Tn1549 Int’s helix αM is substituted with a short beta s […]


Expression correlates between Annexin A1 and A2 autoantibodies in patients with Behçet’s disease

Biosci Rep
PMCID: 5773811
PMID: 28963375
DOI: 10.1042/BSR20170778

[…] mitant of each other. Then, 3D structural similarity analysis was performed using flexible structural alignment method (flexible structure alignment by chaining aligned fragment pairs allowing twist (FATCAT)) [,]. […]


Functional Connectivity Alterations between Networks and Associations with Infant Immune Health within Networks in HIV Infected Children on Early Treatment: A Study at 7 Years

Front Hum Neurosci
PMCID: 5768628
PMID: 29375341
DOI: 10.3389/fnhum.2017.00635

[…] mith et al., ). Each IC was visually inspected and quantitatively compared to the standard set of Functional Connectome Project (FCP) template RSN maps (Biswal et al., ) using the 3dMatch function in FATCAT (Taylor and Saad, ). ICs containing known networks were thresholded at Z > 3 and binarized RSN masks created. The remaining ICs (representing non-GM tissue, subject motion, etc.) were discarded […]


Acquisition of functions on the outer capsid surface during evolution of double stranded RNA fungal viruses

PLoS Pathog
PMCID: 5738138
PMID: 29220409
DOI: 10.1371/journal.ppat.1006755
call_split See protocol

[…] p://ekhidna.biocenter.helsinki.fi/dali_server/start) was used for structural alignment between RnQV1 CP P2 and P4 proteins and their overlap with PcV CP A and B domains as well as L-A Gag CP. We used FATCAT [] (http://fatcat.burnham.org), CATH [] (http://www.cathdb.info) and Dali servers to search for structures related to the P2 Asp227-Tyr350 domain. […]


Protein Structure Insights into the Bilayer Interactions of the Saposin Like Domain of Solanum tuberosum Aspartic Protease

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5717070
PMID: 29208977
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-16734-2

[…] t peptides and 2S albumins. Additionally, a protein domain structure alignment search of the RCSB PDB structure database for PSI (3RFI; using the Protein Structure Comparison Tool v.4.2.0 running the FATCAT algorithm) produced high-scoring matches to diverse surface-active/membrane-interacting proteins including endosomal/vacuolar factors (endosomal sorting complex required for transport-I and vac […]
