Interaction of lecithin:cholesterol acyltransferase with lipid surfaces and apolipoprotein A I derived peptides[S]

J Lipid Res
PMCID: 5880497
PMID: 29438987
DOI: 10.1194/jlr.M082685

[…] e maximum angle formed by hydrogen bonding atoms hydrogen-donor-acceptor was set to 30 degrees. The number of salt bridges in the structure of LCAT concerning the lid-region was calculated by the gmx mindist program with a distance criterion of 0.6 nm between the charged side chain central carbon atoms of negatively and positively charged amino acids (GLU-ARG, GLU-LYS, ASP-ARG, and ASP-LYS). The s […]


The Transcription Factor STAT6 Mediates Direct Repression of Inflammatory Enhancers and Limits Activation of Alternatively Polarized Macrophages

PMCID: 5772169
PMID: 29343442
DOI: 10.1016/j.immuni.2017.12.010

[…] th default parameters. MACS2 () (with ‘-B’ and ‘-SPMR’ options) was used for predicting transcription factor peaks and nucleosome free regions (q-value ≤ 0.01), and findPeaks.pl (with ‘-size 1000’, ‘-minDist 2500’ and ‘-style histone’ options) for histone regions. Artifacts were removed using the ENCODE blacklist (). Predicted peaks were sorted by average coverage (RPKM, Reads Per Kilobase per Mil […]


LSD1 activation promotes inducible EMT programs and modulates the tumour microenvironment in breast cancer

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5758711
PMID: 29311580
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-17913-x

[…] es were created from the first read using HTSEQ. Enriched regions were called against Total Input with the first read of the pair using HOMER (-fragLength 200 findPeaks -style histone -F 4 -size 300 -minDist 300) and then filtered so that each region had at least 12.2 normalised reads. HOMER was used to annotate and profile the regions, search for enriched motifs and ontology, count tags in the re […]


Mechanistic insights into remodeled Tau derived PHF6 peptide fibrils by Naphthoquinone Tryptophan hybrids

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5758761
PMID: 29311706
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-18443-2

[…] To identify the mechanism behind NQTrp and Cl-NQTrp interaction with the PHF6 oligomer, we calculated the evolution of hydrogen bonds during simulation using g_hbond and number of interaction using g_mindist. As the number of interaction increased, (Supplementary Fig. ) single molecule of NQTrp or Cl-NQTrp formed an average of 1–2 hydrogen bonds with the peptide oligomer (Fig. ).Figure 5 Experimen […]


Transcriptomes define distinct subgroups of salivary gland adenoid cystic carcinoma with different driver mutations and outcomes

PMCID: 5800907
PMID: 29484115
DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.23641

[…] measures described in the text. Peak finding to identify samples that expressed MYB or MYBL1 was performed using findpeaks from the HOMER (v4.9) package [], with settings of -region, -size 1000 and -minDist 10000. […]


Structure and Interactions of A Host Defense Antimicrobial Peptide Thanatin in Lipopolysaccharide Micelles Reveal Mechanism of Bacterial Cell Agglutination

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5736615
PMID: 29259246
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-18102-6

[…] among cationic sidechains. The dimer structure is only stabilized in complex with LPS. The minimum distance and center of mass distance between LPS and thanatin dimer were calculated using Gromacs g_mindist and g_dist respectively. The coordination number (CN) of LPS/thanatin was defined as2CN=∑i=1NLPS∑j=1NthanC(dij)and3C(dij)={1,dij≤cutoff0,dij>cutoffwhereas, NLPS and Nthan are the total number […]
