Ligand binding modes from low resolution GPCR models and mutagenesis: chicken bitter taste receptor as a test case

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5557796
PMID: 28811548
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-08344-9

[…] Based on previous work, , we used single-template homology modeling, in order to allow manual sequence alignment adjustments and direct comparisons of templates. 3D models were built with MEDELLER, specifically developed and validated for template-based modeling of membrane proteins. Two representative agonist-bound GPCR structures in the full active conformation were used as templates […]


Computational Approaches for Revealing the Structure of Membrane Transporters: Case Study on Bilitranslocase

Comput Struct Biotechnol J
PMCID: 5312651
PMID: 28228927
DOI: 10.1016/j.csbj.2017.01.008

[…] methods, it is interesting to note the really outstanding popularity of homology modeling with MODELER . However, for TM protein prediction Kelm et al. presented the TM-specific homology-based tool MEDELLER and used performance analyses to demonstrate that MEDELLER outperforms the most popular homology modeling tool MODELER. The low usability of ab initio techniques is reasonable because they ar […]


A voltage dependent fluorescent indicator for optogenetic applications, archaerhodopsin 3: Structure and optical properties from in silico modeling

PMCID: 5381632
PMID: 28435665
DOI: 10.5256/f1000research.11514.r19223
call_split See protocol

[…] odopsin-3. Archeorhodopsin-1, which has the highest sequence identity to the target protein, was chosen as a template (RCSB code, 1UAZ). Three algorithms of homology-based model building were tested: Medeller , I-TASSER and RosettaCM . All methods of homology modeling heavily rely on externally made target-template alignment of primary sequences, which serves as the main instruction for model bui […]


Architecture of the Synaptophysin/Synaptobrevin Complex: Structural Evidence for an Entropic Clustering Function at the Synapse

Sci Rep
PMCID: 4558601
PMID: 26333660
DOI: 10.1038/srep13659
call_split See protocol

[…] The SYP sequence was aligned with the connexin26 sequence based upon a hydropathy window using AlignMe. The aligned sequences were then used in Medeller ( either as the core SYP 21–220 or the full length sequence as the target and connexin-26 (PDB 2ZW3) as the template. The new model was then dynam […]


Modeling Suggests TRPC3 Hydrogen Bonding and Not Phosphorylation Contributes to the Ataxia Phenotype of the Moonwalker Mouse

PMCID: 4530436
PMID: 26112884
DOI: 10.1021/acs.biochem.5b00235

[…] se models. It would also be of possible interest to include the recent TRPA1 channel structure as an additional template, and possibly to compare the output of membrane protein-specific tools such as MEDELLER and/or Rosetta Membrane with those of the used MODELLER. Additionally, a more exhaustive alanine scan of the region of the protein identified in this study and/or the use of non-natural amino […]


High Resolution Modeling of Transmembrane Helical Protein Structures from Distant Homologues

PLoS Comput Biol
PMCID: 4031050
PMID: 24854015
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pcbi.1003636
call_split See protocol

[…] The template structures and alignments between template and target sequences for each protein pair in the benchmark were used as inputs to the Homology Modeling software MEDELLER . MEDELLER was run using the online MEDELLER server ( with default settings to generate “complete” models. The MEDELLER server […]
