UCSF Chimera is a highly extensible program for interactive visualization and analysis of molecular structures and related data, including density maps, supramolecular assemblies, sequence alignments, docking results, trajectories, and conformational ensembles. High-quality images and animations can be generated. Chimera includes complete documentation and several tutorials, and can be downloaded free of charge for academic, government, nonprofit, and personal use. Chimera is developed by the Resource for Biocomputing, Visualization, and Informatics (RBVI), supported in part by the National Institutes of Health (P41-GM103311).
UCSF ChimeraX (or simply ChimeraX) is the next-generation molecular visualization program from the RBVI, following UCSF Chimera.
One use of Multidomain Assembler is to set up comparative modeling and concatenation of existing structures to generate a full-length model of a multidomain protein. However, even without model-building, the byproduct is also useful: a visual summary of the structures available for a query sequence, optionally filtered by criteria such as BLAST score and % identity, laid out horizontally in approximate N→C order relative to the query. Overlapping hits are stacked vertically, and segments without structural coverage are indicated with spheres. By default, the multiple sequence alignment of the hits to the query is also displayed.
The figure shows the results of command:
mda p08648 ~/Desktop/MDA limit 4 percent 50
with sequence mismatches in red and molecules other than the hit chains in blue. Text and pointers have been added with 2D Labels.
Multidomain Assembler is described in a paper.(More features...)
Peroxiredoxins are enzymes that help cells cope with stressors such as high levels of reactive oxygen species. The image shows a decameric peroxiredoxin from human red blood cells (Protein Data Bank entry 1qmv), styled as a holiday wreath.
