Sparky in pipeline

PMCID: 5017827
PMID: 27626070
DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.1501228

[…] with 20 mm ascorbic acid. all nmr data were collected at 600 to 900 mhz using bruker spectrometers. nmr spectra were processed using topspin and nmrpipe () and analyzed using nmrview () and sparky ()., initial structure calculations were conducted within xplor-nih v2.24 () using rmd with simulated annealing. this led to an ensemble of kcne3 structures consistent with the nmr data. ten […]
