Phosphorylation of an intrinsically disordered region of Ets1 shifts a multi modal interaction ensemble to an auto inhibitory state

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 5861456
PMID: 29309620
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkx1297
call_split See protocol

[…] including the Ets1 core domain (). At the final production run, 9 × 106 steps were computed for each of 50 runs (total 540 ns) in the V-McMD scheme (). The computation was performed with the myPresto/psygene-G software (). […]


A novel rare variant R292H in RTN4R affects growth cone formation and possibly contributes to schizophrenia susceptibility

PMCID: 5611737
PMID: 28892071
DOI: 10.1038/tp.2017.170

[…] )-like domain with weak sequence similarity (sequence identity=19.5%). The program MATRAS was used for the superimposition. The model was then refined using three programs: MODELLER, UCSF Chimera and myPresto. Details of the modeling procedure are provided in the and . […]


Molecular mechanisms of cooperative binding of transcription factors Runx1–CBFβ–Ets1 on the TCRα gene enhancer

PLoS One
PMCID: 5322934
PMID: 28231333
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0172654

[…] are summarized in .For MD simulations, the energy optimization and equilibration runs were performed, using the Gromacs software []. The successive production runs were performed, using the myPresto/psygene-G software []. Amber parm99SB [] with bsc0 parameters [] was applied for the force-field of proteins and DNA. For the solution, the ion parameters determined by Joung and Cheatham [] and the T […]


Revisiting antibody modeling assessment for CDR H3 loop

PMCID: 5081041
PMID: 27515703
DOI: 10.1093/protein/gzw028
call_split See protocol

[…] and B was used for modeling. The initial structure of the CDR-H3 loop was taken from our previous model (), which had been built with the MODELLER program (), followed by energy minimization with the myPresto/cosgene program (). This structure, named joaAb10m3.pdb, is available at the AMA-II Web site ( The other part of the antibody structure was exactly the same as the X-r […]


Variation of free‐energy landscape of the p53 C‐terminal domain induced by acetylation: Enhanced conformational sampling

J Comput Chem
PMCID: 5242334
PMID: 27735058
DOI: 10.1002/jcc.24494

[…] t ensemble. However, the enhanced sampling method has higher efficiency than conventional sampling does. Later, we discuss statistical properties of the resultant ensembles.We used a computer program psygene–G for V‐McMD with the SHAKE method to fix the covalent‐bond length related to hydrogen atoms, the zero dipole summation method, , to calculate long‐range electrostatic interactions, the veloc […]


Elastic properties of dynein motor domain obtained from all atom molecular dynamics simulations

PMCID: 4955872
PMID: 27334455
DOI: 10.1093/protein/gzw022

[…] e dynein motor domain, nucleotides, explicit water molecules and ions (size of the systems: approximately one million atoms). To execute the MD simulation of such a large system, we used our program, psygene-G (), which utilizes GPGPUs for acceleration of the non-bonded interactions, including the electrostatic computation by the ZD method. We performed 200-ns MD simulations for both the ADP and A […]
