Computational Approaches for Revealing the Structure of Membrane Transporters: Case Study on Bilitranslocase

Comput Struct Biotechnol J
PMCID: 5312651
PMID: 28228927
DOI: 10.1016/j.csbj.2017.01.008

[…] the use of simulated annealing algorithms, which are based on the general principles that govern protein structure and energetics and therefore does not require a template (e.g. ROSETTA , FRAGFOLD , PROTINFO , FILM ). Each software tool has its specificities and advantages, and use different energy functions and computational methods, but protein 3D structures' building methods generally achieve […]


Refining the Structural Model of a Heterohexameric Protein Complex: Surface Induced Dissociation and Ion Mobility Provide Key Connectivity and Topology Information

PMCID: 4690985
PMID: 26744735
DOI: 10.1021/acscentsci.5b00251
call_split See protocol

[…] The structural model candidates for the TNH αβγ trimer are generated based on four templates (PDB ID: 3hht, 1ugq, 1ugs, and 1ahj) with dimer models predicted by protinfo ppc server. A 10 ns all-atom molecular dynamics simulation with periodic water box was conducted using NAMD 2.9 with the CHARMM force field., The periodic water box was set up as a layer of 1 […]


Computational modeling suggests dimerization of equine infectious anemia virus Rev is required for RNA binding

PMCID: 4299382
PMID: 25533001
DOI: 10.1186/s12977-014-0115-7

[…] The QUARK, ITASSER, LOMETS, and PROTINFO protein structure prediction servers were used for automated modeling of Rev and are described in [,,,,,]. Default settings were used for the QUARK, ITASSER, and LOMETS servers. The “generate […]


High intralocus variability and interlocus recombination promote immunological diversity in a minimal major histocompatibility system

BMC Evol Biol
PMCID: 4302578
PMID: 25526691
DOI: 10.1186/s12862-014-0273-1

[…] x of the seahorse was reconstructed via homology modeling of the full-length MH class IIα and IIβ loci to the previously determined crystallographic structure of the mouse MH class II molecule, using Protinfo PPC []. Inferred protein surface models of target and database sequences were annotated and visualized in Chimera v1.6.2 [].Protinfo PPC returned five significant hits (structure confidence: […]


Structure Prediction of Partial Length Protein Sequences

Int J Mol Sci
PMCID: 3742278
PMID: 23867606
DOI: 10.3390/ijms140714892

[…] e I-TASSER Standalone Package was downloaded from the Zhang Lab website and used without modification on the benchmarking setting to generate models for each input sequence. A modified version of the Protinfo comparative modeling application [] that omitted the loop building step and selected templates using HHsearch [] (ProtinfoCM/HH) were also applied to the benchmarking dataset. Templates used […]


Homo dimerization and ligand binding by the leucine rich repeat domain at RHG1/RFS2 underlying resistance to two soybean pathogens

BMC Plant Biol
PMCID: 3626623
PMID: 23497186
