[…] to 150 ns. the final 50 and 100 ns of the production phase were considered in the analyses of the filament and the isolated protein trajectories, respectively., in-house python scripts based on the ptools library () were used to compute the number of contacts between different regions of the system. for each contact pair, both the contact occurrence and the persistence time of the contact […]

[…] homology search (blast) against the uniprot database., a metabolic pathway database, rhacyc, was created for rhazya using the pathologic component of pathway tools ( this program inferred metabolic pathways by comparing the annotated rhazya genes to the metacyc 2.0 reference pathway database ( the rhacyc database contains […]

[…] with twice the height of the pentamers and hexamers. we propose here plausible quaternary structures of such decamers and dodecamers, by performing (with our coarse-grained approach implemented in ptools) single docking calculations of the aβ42 cyclic pentamer and hexamer models onto themselves, respectively. we found that the thirteen and twelve lowest energy predicted structures […]
