Return again to the ExPASy tools . Notice there are two sections dealing with structure prediction, secondary structure prediction tools and tertiary structureprediction and visualization tools. The secondary structure prediction tools are designed to predict features such as the helical content, the betasheet formations, and the turns, loops, and coil regions within a protein, given the sequence.

Explore the secondary structure tools independently, and submit the diacylglycerol kinase sequenceabove to any of the available secondary structure prediction tools. Most of these tools will email the results, with at leasta 20 minute delay between submission and receipt of results. Forward a results summary to the instructor, outlining the predictions created bythe program of choice.

Tertiary structure prediction tools match the query sequence with sequences, or partial sequences, of proteins where the 3-Dstructure has been published in the Protein Data Bank (PDB). These tools will produce a model of the query protein by piecing together the structuralregions from the best matches in the PDB, and threading the query sequence through the predicted structure. For more detailed explanations of available3-D structure prediction software, view the Swiss-Model demo page and the Geno3D reference page . Although both of these tools are searching for templates from existing PDB entries, they are doing this in different ways.

What program does Swiss-Model use to match the query sequence with sequences of known structures?

Notice that the template selection process and the model structure refinement processes are different between these two programs as well.

Finally, in the tertiary structure section of the ExPASy tools page, Swiss PDB Viewer is a graphical tool for the visualization, comparison and analysis of3-D coordinate files. Swiss PDB Viewer can superimpose 3-D structures by finding the rotation and translation that most closely aligns the two proteinstructures. Additionally, the Swiss PDB Viewer will perform amino acid mutations, prediction of hydrogen bonds, and calculation of angles anddistances between atoms. Best of all, Swiss PDB Viewer is freeware and available for many different platforms, including Macintosh, PC, SGI IRIX,and Linux.

View this supplemental SPDBV web page . What other function does Swiss PDB Viewer have, when used in conjunction withother applications such as OpenGL or POV-Ray?

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
