[…] nce was determined by the use of the Modeller platform from the Bioinformatics Toolkit from the Max Planck Institute using GII.4.2012/NSW0514 as the template (). Dimeric models were created using The PyMOL Molecular Graphics System, version (Schrödinger, LLC). […]


High resolution AFM structure of DNA G wires in aqueous solution

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5958085
PMID: 29773796
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-04016-y

[…] ained dynamics with constraints of 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, and 0.5 kcal mol−1 Å−2. Finally, simulations were run unrestrained at 1 atm and 300 K for a duration of 1 ns. Molecules were visualized using VMD and Pymol. Molecular structures were averaged over the 1 ns unrestrained simulation and used for AFM simulations. […]
