PMCID: 5585393
PMID: 28874689
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-09654-8

[…] using ccd and a final candidate gets selected using statistical potentials of mean force. the sidechain modelling is inspired by scwrl4. a final energy minimization is performed using the openmm molecular mechanics library. each model is annotated with the qs-score to the native structure and the set of features described in the text. to ensure an un-biased learning step, all models […]

[…] the swiss-model template library and models were built using promod3 and alternatively promod-ii []. following loop and side chains modeling, a last energy minimization step is performed using the openmm [] molecular mechanics library., for structural analysis purposes two different models were chosen based on different template structures obtained from different experimental methods. firstly, […]

[…] dynamics (mds) run in order to relax the potentially non-equilibrium structures. the md was prepared and performed using the gpu version of the gromacs suite of programs as implemented in the openmm zephyr package. average structures from second half of the simulations were further used for the docking study. the docking study of the mitoves, ttfa and ubiquinone ligands/inhibitors […]

[…] initial structures of the helical core (residues 290–343) of the c-terminal domain of cdc37 were taken from the protein data bank (pdb id 2n5x). systems were built using charmm, but run with openmm using the charmm force field. three different systems were modeled, the unphosphorylated and y298 phosphorylated wild types, and the y298e mutant. systems were solvated in tip3p water boxes, […]
