Structure and functional dynamics characterization of the ion channel of the human respiratory syncytial virus (hRSV) small hydrophobic protein (SH) transmembrane domain by combining molecular dynamics with excited normal modes
(Journal Of Molecular Modeling, 2016-12-01) [Artigo]
The human respiratory syncytial virus (hRSV) is the major cause of lower respiratory tract infection in children and elderly people worldwide. Its genome encodes 11 proteins including SH protein, whose functions are not ...
Modeling and molecular dynamics indicate that snake venom phospholipase B-like enzymes are Ntn-hydrolases
(Toxicon, 2018-10-01) [Resenha]
Phospholipase-B-like (SVPLB-like) enzymes are present in relatively small amounts in a number of venoms, however, their biological function and mechanisms of action are un-clear. A three-dimensional model of the SVPLB-like ...
Effects of N-terminus modifications on the conformation and permeation activities of the synthetic peptide L1A
(Amino Acids, 2016-06-01) [Artigo]
We investigate the effect of the N-terminus modification of the L1A, a synthetic octadecapeptide, on its helical content, affinity and lytic action in model membranes and on its hemolytic and antibacterial activities. L1A ...
Structural studies of prephenate dehydratase from Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv by SAXS, ultracentrifugation, and computational analysis
(Proteins: Structure, Function and Bioinformatics, 2008-09-01) [Artigo]
Tuberculosis (TB) is one of the most common infectious diseases known to man and responsible for millions of human deaths in the world. The increasing incidence of TB in developing countries, the proliferation of multidrug ...
Inhibition of thioredoxin A1 from Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis by polyanions and flavonoids
(International Journal of Biological Macromolecules, 2018-10-01) [Artigo]
In pathogens, the thioredoxin system forms part of the defense against oxidative stress and ensures the formation of the proper disulfide bonds to ensure protein function. In Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis, the role ...
Structural analysis of a novel N-carbamoyl-D-amino acid amidohydrolase from a Brazilian Bradyrhizobium japonicum strain: In silico insights by molecular modelling, docking and molecular dynamics
(Journal of Molecular Graphics and Modelling, 2019-01-01) [Artigo]
In this work we performed several in silico analyses to describe the relevant structural aspects of an enzyme N-Carbamoyl-D-amino acid amidohydrolase (D-NCAase) encoded on the genome of the Brazilian strain CPAC 15 (=SEMIA ...
