Mapping genetic variations to three dimensional protein structures to enhance variant interpretation: a proposed framework

Genome Med
PMCID: 5735928
PMID: 29254494
DOI: 10.1186/s13073-017-0509-y

[…] ble experimentally derived structures are deposited in the Protein Data Bank (PDB) []. When experimentally determined structures are not available for proteins, structural models may be used instead. Protein Model Portal [] aggregates precomputed models from multiple resources, whereas most methods generate models interactively on request, for example, I-TASSER [], ModWeb [], Phyre2 [], HHpred [], […]


L Asparaginase of Leishmania donovani: Metabolic target and its role in Amphotericin B resistance

PMCID: 5633258
PMID: 28988014
DOI: 10.1016/j.ijpddr.2017.09.003
call_split See protocol

[…] UNIPROT E9BC85), H. pylori, M. tuberculosis and human L-asparaginase was done using CLUSTAL Omega. 3D structure alignment of LdAI with L-asparaginase of M. tuberculosis and S. typhi (pre-available at Protein Model Portal at Protein Structure Initiative Knowledgebase (PSI KB)) and H. pylori (PDB id: 2WLT) was done using PyMol. For identifying potential interaction partners, STRING () analysis was d […]


Repurposing metformin as a quorum sensing inhibitor in Pseudomonas aeruginosa

PMCID: 5656202
PMID: 29085409
DOI: 10.4314/ahs.v17i3.24

[…] udy was performed. The crystal structure of P. aeruginosa LasR ligand binding domain was obtained from Protein Data Bank (PDB ID: 2UV0), while the rhlr receptor model (ID: P54292.1) was achieved from protein model portal28. The interaction of metformin, the natural ligand, 3-oxo-dodecanoylhomoserine lactone and the classical quorum sensing inhibitor C30 furanone into the receptor active site was i […]


Engineering a high affinity humanized anti CD24 antibody to target hepatocellular carcinoma by a novel CDR grafting design

PMCID: 5584245
PMID: 28881644
DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.17228

[…] and sequenced. Based on the sequencing results, we analyzed the cG7 epitope. The ZDOCK program (version 3.0.2) was used to dock cG7 and epitope residues on CD24 using a structure downloaded from the Protein Model Portal (PMP) [, ]. The superior modeled complex structure was analyzed by MOE and the residues that played an important role in the molecular interactions were identified. […]


Metagenomic mining for thermostable esterolytic enzymes uncovers a new family of bacterial esterases

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5171882
PMID: 27991516
DOI: 10.1038/srep38886

[…] on the three-dimensional structure of EstDZ2 were performed by employing a variety of automated web-servers for protein structure homology modelling and applying standard protocols as implemented in “Protein Model Portal”. These include SWISS-MODEL, M4T, InFOLD2, Phyre2 and I-TASSER. Model structures of EstDZ2, were created based on templates derived from previously determined structures that exhi […]


Emergence and Evolution of Hominidae Specific Coding and Noncoding Genomic Sequences

Genome Biol Evol
PMCID: 4987104
PMID: 27289096
DOI: 10.1093/gbe/evw132

[…] of DSCR4 based on Chou and Fasman algorithm () suggests the existence of potential α-Helices and β-Sheets (see supplementary fig. S3a, Supplementary Material online). Constructing the 3D structure by protein model portal () and I-TASSER () also showed evidence for the existence of α helices and β sheets in the protein coded by DSCR4 (see supplementary fig. S3b and c, Supplementary Material online) […]
