PMCID: 5833004
PMID: 29532017
DOI: 10.1021/acscentsci.7b00401

[…] supporting information). multiple crystal structures were used because of the flexibility of the arg1173 side chain and the rigid-protein protocol employed for docking by the open-source software rdock. the acetyl benzene was initially oriented in the binding site to mimic the kac residue as observed in the crystal structure and then underwent flexible docking. the poses obtained by docking […]

[…] and electrostatic energy) clusters that included the most structures for both resting and activated complexes. the poses from the three clusters with high zdock scores were selected and minimized by rdock. to determine which pose was more stable, the interaction energies were calculated, and then the most favorable binding mode was gained. docking data indicated that in mnav1.7, the residues […]

[…] conformation displayed in pdb id 3oki, and putative binding modes for the entire series were manually created from the binding mode of compound 83., all docking calculations were performed with rdock, generating the cavity using the two-sphere method available in the program, centering a 15 å cavity within residues m294, i356, s336 and y373 using 1.5 and 4.0 å for the radius of the small […]

[…] as previous computational reports, , , , , ., evolution of size and shape of the ap and dp during the md simulations was examined using the two-probe sphere method of rbcavity program bundled in the rdock suite. this allows obtaining detailed information on the pocket volume and plasticity of the site. in this method, the binding site volume was identified by a fast grid-based cavity detection […]

[…] inc.). the best pose of these two molecules was subsequently docked into gp120 using patch dock server. the shortlisted poses from patchdock and zdock were further refined using fire dock and rdock, respectively., structurally, dc-sign is composed of an extracellular domain (ecd) which exists as a tetramer, stabilized by an n-terminal α-helical neck region, followed by a crd. dc-sign […]
