[…] a template, a second round of segmentation, alignment and averaging resulted in a final average gp39 subunit., sse identification was then performed on the averaged gp39 subunit using ssehunter in gorgon51. five helices and two β-sheets were identified and corresponded to those found in capsid proteins of other tailed dsdna bacteriophages, such as gp5 in hk97 (ref. ). in addition, a density […]

[…] chikv homologue () (pdb id: 3n40) as the template. the missing parts in the crystal structure (e1: residues 390–442; e2: residues 342–423) were modelled de novo by first tracing the backbones using gorgon (), with several visible side-chain densities serving as the anchor points., to model the tm helices, in particular, we generated the cα models of two consecutive helices (residues 403–412 […]
