Determination of genotypic and clinical characteristics of Colombian patients with mucopolysaccharidosis IVA

PMCID: 5926073
PMID: 29731656
DOI: 10.2147/TACG.S141881

[…] Each mutant was modeled by homology with SWISS-model using a 4FDI wild-type GALNS template from the RCSB-PDB database, and then the models were refined at PyMOL. summarizes the RMSD and ASA measures for each of the models.RMSD was calculated by overlapping all mutant GALNS models with 4FDI wild-typ […]


Lignin peroxidase ligand access channel dysfunction in the presence of atrazine

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5902622
PMID: 29662099
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-24478-w

[…] 1.1). The docking procedure was carried out with the DockingServer web-based application, and the results were analyzed with AutoDockTools (v1.5.6). The applied enzyme structure was obtained from the RCSB PDB database (PDB: 1B82) with a resolution of 1.8 Å. The structure contained a non-relevant R114A mutation. MD simulations of lignin peroxidase were performed with NAMD software (v2.12) using the […]


Analysis of HIV 1 envelope evolution suggests antibody mediated selection of common epitopes among Chinese former plasma donors from a narrow source outbreak

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5893620
PMID: 29636501
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-23913-2

[…] elling was implemented through SWISS-MODEL– to map the translated SM cohort Gp120 consensus sequence to a cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) crystal structure of a glycosylated HIV-1 envelope trimer (RCSB PDB 3J5M). The sites of interest were annotated on the modelled structure in PyMOL v1.7.4 (Schrödinger, LLC.). […]


Glucose regulated protein 78 substrate binding domain alters its conformation upon EGCG inhibitor binding to nucleotide binding domain: Molecular dynamics studies

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5882873
PMID: 29615633
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-22905-6
call_split See protocol

[…] full length ATP-bound state of 78-kDa Glucose-regulated Protein (GRP78) and its isolated SBD, respectively, was downloaded from Research Collaboratory in Structural Bioinformatics Protein Data Bank (RCSB PDB) (http://www.rcsb.org/pdb/home.do). EGCG inhibitor structure was downloaded from PubChem database in .sdf format. OpenBabel (http://openbabel.org/wiki/main_page) was used to convert this file […]


New Insights into the Function and Global Distribution of Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Degrading Bacteria and Enzymes in Marine and Terrestrial Metagenomes

Appl Environ Microbiol
PMCID: 5881046
PMID: 29427431
DOI: 10.1128/AEM.02773-17

[…] search was carried out using the HMMER (http://hmmer.org/) webpage or a local version of the software (v3.1b2) with downloaded data sets. Structural information on the enzymes was retrieved from the RCSB-PDB () database.Sequence data were processed using BioEdit and the Clone Manager suite version 9 (Sci-Ed Software, Denver, USA). Neighbor-joining phylogenetic trees based on amino acid sequence a […]


The complete mitochondrial genome of the hermaphroditic freshwater mussel Anodonta cygnea (Bivalvia: Unionidae): in silico analyses of sex specific ORFs across order Unionoida

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5870820
PMID: 29587633
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4583-3

[…] To ensure that the amino acid chain within Respiratory Complex 1 that corresponds to NAD5 was correctly selected for analysis, sequence for NAD5 from A. anatina was aligned to protein sequence in the RCSB PDB using BLAST [–]. This protein BLAST analysis also served as a complementary test for our annotation of NAD5. NAD5’s protein features were assigned in our figures using the annotations reporte […]
