Structural and Immunological Characterization of Novel Recombinant MOMP Based Chlamydial Antigens

PMCID: 5874643
PMID: 29295593
DOI: 10.3390/vaccines6010002

[…] of native and recombinant cm momp was carried out as previously described []., predicted structural models of porb/vd and nl porb monomers and trimers were created with swiss model workspace [,] and ngl viewer []. as a template, the 3.2 å resolution x-ray crystal structure of the n. meningitidis porb was used (pdb id 3wi4, 63% amino acid sequence homology with nl porb) []. , purified porb/vds […]


MMTF—An efficient file format for the transmission, visualization, and analysis of macromolecular structures

PMCID: 5473584
PMID: 28574982
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pcbi.1005575

[…] sequence files., next, we compared the load time of implementations in different programming languages. we benchmarked three commonly used software libraries: biopython [] (, ngl viewer [] (, and biojava [] ( written in python, javascript, and java, respectively. a benchmark set of 1,000 randomly selected pdb entries […]


DSSR enhanced visualization of nucleic acid structures in Jmol

PMCID: 5570162
PMID: 28472503
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkx365

[…] standard dssp algorithm () and routinely featured in general-purpose molecular graphics programs, such as jmol/jsmol (,), the pymol molecular graphics system (version 1.8, schrödinger, llc), and the ngl viewer (). however, the field of rna structural bioinformatics is still lagging behind; for example, most current molecular graphics tools lack built-in support even for base pairs, double […]


Integrating genomic information with protein sequence and 3D atomic level structure at the RCSB protein data bank

PMCID: 5167066
PMID: 27551105
DOI: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btw547

[…] which are depicted using custom icons., a new 3d visualization is available that supports mapping of any protein sequence annotation from the protein feature view onto protein structures using the ngl viewer (). the data integration enabled by the tools described below is used to provide several novel tracks: the exon structure track shows a mapping of the exon/intron boundaries onto the first […]
