STRAP: Sequence features in 3D
Three Adobe flash animations explain how sequence features such as phosphorylated amino acids or active site residues are shown in 3D.
The Example in the animation can be loaded with the following Web-link:
The proteins to be loaded and the DAS sequence feature sources are encoded in this long Web-address.
- Dragging sequence features to 3d: (1 MByte, 3 min) This animation shows how sequence features or other residue selections can be selected by Ctrl-left-click and moved to a homologous protein structure using Drag-and-Drop.
- Rubber band selection:
(0.1 MByte, 1 min) When there are dozens or hundreds of
residue selections, it would be tedious to select one after
the other using the above method with Ctrl-left-click. This
animation shows, how many sequence features can be selected by
opening a rectangular region with the mouse.
- Browsable tree: (0.25
MByte, 1 min) This animation shows yet another method to
select many sequence features: Using the browsable tree.
- Spice (0.2 MByte, 1 min) This animation shows how different views can be opened from STRAP: Spice.
