Allostery in the dengue virus NS3 helicase: Insights into the NTPase cycle from molecular simulations

PLoS Comput Biol
PMCID: 5919694
PMID: 29659571
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pcbi.1006103

[…] Unless stated otherwise, analyses of MD trajectories are performed using Python 2.7 and the MDAnalysis module (version 0.15.0) []. Matplotlib is used for plotting data []. VMD is used for visualization of trajectories and production of structural figures [–]. For each substrate state, a sing […]


Crystal structure of undecaprenyl pyrophosphate phosphatase and its role in peptidoglycan biosynthesis

Nat Commun

[…] parameters, with a Verlet cutoff scheme to permit GPU calculation of non-bonded contacts. Simulations were performed with an integration time step of 2 fs. The MDS were analyzed using Gromacs tools, MDAnalysis and locally written python and perl scripts.Homologous sequences were identified in the UniProtKB database, using eight iterations of Jackhmmer, with the default search parameters. This ide […]


Permeability and ammonia selectivity in aquaporin TIP2;1: linking structure to function

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5813003
PMID: 29445244
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-21357-2

[…] idues. For the permeability calculation we for practical purposes used the center of geometry instead of the COM.Pore radii were calculated using HOLE v.2.2.004.Hydrogen bonds were detected using the MDAnalysis hydrogen bond library, applying a donor-acceptor atom distance cutoff 3.5 Å and a donor-hydrogen-acceptor cutoff angle of 150° (where 180° is linear).The osmotic permeability, pf was calcul […]

[…] of starting configurations. To the best of our knowledge, no simulation study of the Stokes shift exists on such a large scale. The resulting trajectories were analyzed via a python program based on MDAnalysis. 95% confidence intervals are given, where appropriate, as where x is the average of the property of interest, t the Student t factor, s the standard deviation and n the number of independ […]
