An NMR investigation of proteins with known X-ray structures is of interest in a number of endeavors. Performing these studies through nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) requires the costly step of resonance assignment. The prevalent assignment strategy does not make use of existing structural information and requires uniform isotope labeling. Here we present(More)
A strategy for simultaneous study of the structure and internal dynamics of a membrane protein is described using the REDCRAFT algorithm. The membrane-bound form of the Pf1 major coat protein (mbPf1) was used as an example. First, synthetic data is utilized to validate the simultaneous study of structure and dynamics with REDCRAFT using dihedral restraints(More)
Computational approaches to modeling protein structures have made significant advances over the past decade. However, the current limitation in modeling protein structures is to produce protein structures consistently below the limit of 6 Å compared to their native structure. Therefore, improvement of protein structures consistently below the 6 Å limit(More)
Within the past two decades, there has been an increase in the acquisition of residual dipolar couplings (RDC) for investigations of biomolecular structures. Their use however is still not as widely adopted as the traditional methods of structure determination by NMR, despite their potential for extending the limits in studies that examine both the(More)
SCOPE (Semi Classical Open Source Protein Energy) is an open-source program that has been implemented in the Object-Oriented C++ language, capable of computing none-bonded energies for protein structures from first principles. SCOPE is also capable of manipulating protein structures within the Rotamer space instead of the typical Cartesian space. This(More)
