PMCID: 5862659
PMID: 29198957
DOI: 10.1016/j.jmb.2017.11.014

[…] profiles were used to search against profile databases with hhsearch ., protein structures were modeled by submitting corresponding protein sequences to automatic homology modeling servers, raptorx and i-tasser . two different servers were used to ensure the reliability of obtained models following the observation that, if models generated by different methods are similar, these models […]

PMCID: 5435356
PMID: 28475612
DOI: 10.1371/journal.ppat.1006379

[…] described []., comparative models were built from template x-ray crystal structures from the protein database (pdb) files that were identified by searching and aligned using hhsearch/hhpred [], raptorx [], and sparks-x [] as implemented on the robetta server (robetta.org<http://robetta.org>). alignments were clustered and comparative models were generated using the rosettacm protocol […]

[…] conserved domains. brevibacillus phage conserved domains were compared to the c2 repressor of salmonella phage p22 (s. enterica serovar typhimurium) [1adr_a, 2r1j_l, 3jxb_c] []. hhpred [] and raptorx [–] were used to predict tertiary structure and binding sites. these predicted structures were then superimposed using strap [] and compared using ncbi’s cn3d []., phamerator [] was used […]

[…] germany). the images were captured using chemidoc xrs equipment (bio-rad, münchen, germany)., to access the location of the identified epitope of mab-3f8, the structure of fba was predicted using raptorx online software [] using standard settings. coth online software was used to calculate the dimer interfaces for fba []. all structure manipulation and image acquirement were done with pymol […]

[…] variation., given the support for diversifying selection it is worthwhile to ask if predictions of protein structure of the active peptide would add support for the role of selection. we used the raptorx protein structure server (http://raptorx.uchicago.edu/, ) to predict secondary structure of exon 4, the active peptide. this program can give some predictions of structure without the use […]

[…] in identification of a particularly well-conserved region (exon 4 to exon 5) within the ocia domain (fig. ). interestingly, in silico analysis using various structure prediction programs such as raptorx (raptorx.uchicago.edu/) and phyre (http://www.sbg.bio.ic.ac.uk/~phyre2/html/page.cgi?id=index) showed that the region ranging from exon 3 to exon 6 is indeed an important part of the ociad1/2 […]

[…] deleted that were more than 40 å away from the center of mass of ery. initial structures of ermcl (sequence: mgifsifvi) and h-ns (msealkilnnir) peptides off of the ribosome were created using the raptorx webserver and equilibrated in bulk solution using molecular dynamics (md) simulations. specifically, the peptides were solvated in a cubic box with tip3p water molecules […]

[…] these predicted gene products have no similarity to any other toxins. finally, in some unique cases protein structure modeling can provide clarity. open-source computational modeling software, like raptorx [] and i-tasser [], can be used to predict the integrity of enzymes or identify functions based on similarity to known protein structures rather than sequence similarity in order to refine […]
