Molecular Evolution of the VP1 Gene in Human Norovirus GII.4 Variants in 1974–2015

Front Microbiol
PMCID: 5723339
PMID: 29259596
DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2017.02399

[…] d structure of GI (PDB ID: 1IHM) was used as a template for the construction of a shell domain in whole VP1 structures. Amino acid sequences of five templates and the targeted strains were aligned by MAFFTash (Katoh et al., ; Standley et al., ). The constructed models were minimized based on GROMOS96 (van Gunsteren et al., ), implemented by Swiss PDB Viewer v4.1 (Guex and Peitsch, ), and evaluated […]


Molecular evolution of the capsid gene in human norovirus genogroup II

Sci Rep
PMCID: 4935990
PMID: 27384324
DOI: 10.1038/srep29400

[…] tructure of GI (PDB ID: 1IHM) was used to construct the whole structure of the VP1 dimer, including the P1 and shell domains. The structures of five templates and the standard strains were aligned by MAFFTash. To surely provide the structures, the sequence identities of templates and targets were 45.3–100%. The constructed models were minimized by GROMOS96, implemented in Swiss PDB Viewer v4.1 and […]


Head Head Interactions of Resting Myosin Crossbridges in Intact Frog Skeletal Muscles, Revealed by Synchrotron X Ray Fiber Diffraction

PLoS One
PMCID: 3527512
PMID: 23285033
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0052421

[…] d) in PDBID: 3DTP (a, c and e chains are the motor domain including lever-arm, the essential light chain and the regulatory light chain, respectively) was first done with respect to each chain by a “MAFFTash” tool , (a program for alignment of multiple sequences and structures). After the alignment, each structure of the chains in skeletal S1 was modeled based on the structure of the correspondi […]
