We describe here a set of multiresolution visualization and docking procedures that we refer to as the Situs package. The package was developed to provide an efficient and robust method for the fitting of atomic structures into low-resolution data. The current release was optimized specifically for the visualization and docking of single molecules. A novel 3D graphics viewer, volslice3d, was developed for the package to provide an immersive virtual reality environment for measuring and…

Using Situs for the registration of protein structures with low-resolution bead models from X-ray solution scattering

TLDR
The Situs software provides a novel set of visualization and registration procedures to facilitate the localization of protein structures in low-resolution SAXS bead models and a size-invariant shape descriptor of `sphericity' is proposed to assess the onset of ambiguity in the matching of globular molecules.

Multi-resolution contour-based fitting of macromolecular structures.

TLDR
A novel contour-based matching criterion is presented for the quantitative docking of high-resolution structures of components into low-resolution maps of macromolecular complexes and enables for the first time the reliable docking of smaller molecular components into EM densities of large biomolecular assemblies at such low resolutions.

Multi-resolution anchor-point registration of biomolecular assemblies and their components.

Macromolecular structure modeling from 3D EM using VolRover 2.0.

TLDR
Comparisons show that the techniques reviewed are equally capable of segmenting relatively accurate subunits from a viral or protein assembly, and that high segmentation quality leads in turn to higher-quality results of secondary structure elements identification and correlation-based rigid-body fitting.

Normal-mode flexible fitting of high-resolution structure of biological molecules toward one-dimensional low-resolution data.

We present a method for reconstructing a 3D structure from a pair distribution function by flexibly fitting known x-ray structures toward a conformation that agrees with the low-resolution data. This

TLDR
This chapter describes the advantages and potential pitfalls of X-ray crystallography and NMR for revealing the structures of large, dynamically changing macromolecular complexes and puts them into perspective with alternative approaches such as iterative modular fitting of rigid-body domains.

Fitting multimeric protein complexes into electron microscopy maps using 3D Zernike descriptors.

TLDR
Out of 19 multimeric complexes tested, near native complex structures with a root-mean-square deviation of less than 2.5 Å were obtained for 14 cases while medium range resolution structures with correct topology were computed for the additional 5 cases.

Fitting low-resolution cryo-EM maps of proteins using constrained geometric simulations.

TLDR
It is shown that by incorporating the correct local stereochemistry in the modeling, structures can be obtained with effective resolution that is significantly higher than might be expected from the nominal cryo-EM resolution.

Situs: A package for docking crystal structures into low-resolution maps from electron microscopy.

A set of visualization and analysis procedures, termed the Situs package, has been developed to provide an efficient and robust method for the localization of protein subunits in low-resolution data.

Low-resolution density maps from atomic models: how stepping "back" can be a step "forward".

TLDR
This paper presents a method for merging and correlating atomic-resolution structural details with lower-resolution (15-40 A), three-dimensional reconstructions computed from images recorded with cryo-transmission electron microscopy (cryoTEM) procedures.

Reconstruction of protein form with X-ray solution scattering and a genetic algorithm.

TLDR
A new genetic algorithm is designed which gradually explores a discrete search space and evolves convergent models made of several hundred beads best fitting the scattering profile upon Debye calculation, without geometrical constraints or penalty for loose beads.

A database of macromolecular motions.

TLDR
The database contains plausible representations for motion pathways, derived from restrained 3D interpolation between known endpoint conformations, and is an ideal application for an object-relational approach.

Self-organizing neural networks bridge the biomolecular resolution gap.

Topology-representing neural networks are employed to generate pseudo-atomic structures of large-scale protein assemblies by combining high-resolution data with volumetric data at lower resolution.

ALGORITHMS FOR MACROMOLECULAR DYNAMICS AND CONSTRAINT DYNAMICS

The application of the computer simulation method of molecular dynamics to macromolecules is investigated. The protein trypsin inhibitor (BPTI), consisting of 454 united atoms, is used as an example.
