Associate similar 3D-structure
Proteins loaded from sequence files like Uniprot or Genpept files lack 3D-information and cannot be visualized three-dimensionally.
With this dialog similar structures for given sequences can be identified.
Only if a suitable 3D model exist, the 3D-coordinates can be assigned and the protein can be visualized in 3D.
The search result is presented in a table.
Each table row represents one protein. It shows candidates of matching PDB-IDs.
The location of the hit relative to the query sequence is shown graphically as a gray bar.
To infer the proposed 3D-coordinates
the user needs to press the button in the last table column.
Those amino acids in the amino acid sequence that inherited xyz-3D-coordinates will be written as an upper case
letter. Those, that are not assigned 3D-coordinates are shown as lower case letter.
Amino acid positions where the residue type of the 3D model differs are marked.
The associated 3D-structure can be dissociated using the context menu of the protein.
