[…] ions of the mechanical model, and hence the protein. In Figure ), we show the cartoon rendering of Staphylococcal Nuclease (PDB ID 1stn). The visualization of its rigidity properties calculated using KINARI-Web are shown in Figure ), where color bodies indicate clusters of atoms that are rigid.In this study, we used KINARI-Mutagen [], which is part of the KINARI [] software, to perform fast evalua […]


Rigidity analysis of protein biological assemblies and periodic crystal structures

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 3817814
PMID: 24564201
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-14-S18-S2

[…] Our computational setup involves the following: we parse the input PDB file, and use the information in it to build the biological unit and desired crystal structure. Then, we apply our KINARI-Web software to place hydrogen atoms, identify chemical interactions, and perform rigidity analysis, which outputs the rigidity clusters. To perform the experiments, we selected a dataset based […]


Towards accurate modeling of noncovalent interactions for protein rigidity analysis

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 3817810
PMID: 24564209
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-14-S18-S3

[…] proof-of-concept, we investigated the use of a single, rigid bar to model these interactions. We have implemented these extensions in our KINARI software, and made it available for public use on the KINARI-Web server []. In addition, we propose a method for evaluating the tuning of the H-bond and hydrophobic energy cutoffs. This is an adaptation of the B-cubed score from the information retrieval […]
