[…] search for carbohydrate structures in the PDB.Fig. 8Statistical analysis of structural parameters of the carbohydrates present in the PDB entries can be performed with the tools GlySeq, GlyVicinity, GlyTorsion, and carp ( []. GlySeq checks the type of amino acids that are in the sequence neighborhood of N- and O-glycosylation sites, GlyVicinity performs an analys […]


Analysis and validation of carbohydrate three dimensional structures

[…] rp/; Lütteke et al., 2005). To judge the quality of the observed torsions, comparison data are needed. These can be retrieved from the carbohydrate torsions that are present in the PDB as provided by glyTorsion ( or from computationally generated maps retrieved from the GlycoMapsDB (; Frank et al., 2007) […]


Structural glycobiology: A game of snakes and ladders

PMCID: 4203483

[…] y glycans in a solution. Until recently, these types of statistical analyses were challenging to perform due to limited search software; however, a particularly convenient interface for this purpose (GlyTorsion) has been developed (). Exceptions to the tendency to bind low energy conformations are found in carbohydrate-processing enzymes, in which ligand distortion in the active site may be integr […]
