The recently identified type VI secretion systems (T6SS) have a crucial function in the virulence of various proteobacteria, including the human pathogen Vibrio cholerae. T6SS are encoded by a conserved gene cluster comprising approximately 15 open reading frames, mediating the appearance of Hcp and VgrG proteins in cell culture supernatants. Here, we(More)
Missense mutation leading to single amino acid polymorphism (SAP) is the type of mutation most frequently related to human diseases. The Swiss-Prot protein knowledgebase records information on such mutations in various sections of a protein entry, namely in the "feature," "comment," and "reference" fields. To facilitate users in obtaining the most relevant(More)
The Clp protease is conserved among eubacteria and most eukaryotes, and uses ATP to drive protein substrate unfolding and translocation into a chamber of sequestered proteolytic active sites. The main constitutive Clp protease in photosynthetic organisms has evolved into a functionally essential and structurally intricate enzyme. The model Clp protease from(More)
Two of the mostly unsolved but increasingly urgent problems for modern biologists are a) to quickly and easily analyse protein structures and b) to comprehensively mine the wealth of information, which is distributed along with the 3D co-ordinates by the Protein Data Bank (PDB). Tools which address this issue need to be highly flexible and powerful but at(More)
AAA+ proteins form large, ring-shaped complexes, which act as energy-dependent unfoldases of macromolecules. Many crystal structures of proteins in this superfamily have been determined, but mostly in monomeric or non-physiological oligomeric forms. The assembly of ring-shaped complexes from monomer coordinates is, therefore, of considerable interest. We(More)
iMolTalk ( is a new and interactive web server for protein structure analysis. It addresses the need to identify and highlight biochemically important regions in protein structures. As input, the server requires only the four-digit Protein Data Bank (PDB) identifier, of an experimentally determined structure or a structure file in PDB(More)
