There is a paramount need to develop new techniques and tools that will extract as much information as possible from the ever growing repository of protein 3D structures. We report here on the development of a software tool for the multiple superimposition of large sets of protein structural motifs. Our superimposition methodology performs a systematic(More)
This article is focused on the application of two types of docking software, AutoDock and DOCK. It is aimed at studying the interactions of a calcium-dependent bacterial lectin PA-IIL (from Pseudomonas aeruginosa) and its in silico mutants with saccharide ligands. The effect of different partial charges assigned to the calcium ions was tested and evaluated(More)
In this study, in silico mutagenesis and docking in Ralstonia solanacearum lectin (RSL) were carried out, and the ability of several docking software programs to calculate binding affinity was evaluated. In silico mutation of six amino acid residues (Agr17, Glu28, Gly39, Ala40, Trp76, and Trp81) was done, and a total of 114 in silico mutants of RSL were(More)
This article focuses on designing mutations of the PA-IIL lectin from Pseudomonas aeruginosa that lead to change in specificity. Following the previous results revealing the importance of the amino acid triad 22-23-24 (so-called specificity-binding loop), saturation in silico mutagenesis was performed, with the intent of finding mutations that increase the(More)
The metabolic degradation of aldehydes is catalyzed by oxidoreductases from which aldehyde dehydrogenases (EC 1.2.1) comprise nonspecific or substrate-specific enzymes. The latter subset is represented, e.g., by NAD+-dependent aminoaldehyde dehydrogenases (AMADHs; EC 1.2.1.19) oxidizing a group of naturally occurring ω-aminoaldehydes including polyamine(More)
