Title-Structural modeling of membrane proteins from viruses

Computational methods comprise a valuable tool to close the sequence – structure gap, especially for membrane proteins. At this stage secondary structure prediction programs are available to identify putative stretches of helical transmembrane domains (TMDs) while a few programs are developed to predict a beta sheet fold as the membrane spanning motif. With the knowledge about the putative TMDs, here adopting a helical motif, at hand these TMDs can be assembled into a tertiary structure, and finally into putative quaternary structures using docking approaches

As a test case, viral channel forming proteins (VCPs), sometimes also called viroporins, are used to develop strategies to generate plausible structures [1]. VCPs are about five time smaller than human ion channels and therefore used as a miniaturized system to investigate how ion channels are formed. Using E5 protein of human papilloma virus type 16 (HPV-16) the assembly of a poytopic membrane protein with three TMDs is presented in its hexameric form [2]. Using a docking approach, the monomeric form is generated first before assembling into the hexamer. The quality of the model is assessed using potential of mean force calculations (PMF) identifying weak ion selectivity. Principle component analysis (PCA) of the data from a classical molecular dynamics simulations reveal asymmetric dynamics of the monomers. These dynamics are compared with those derived for other VCPs such as polytopic p7 of hepatitis C virus (HCV) with two TMDs [3] and bitopic M2 of influenza A [4]. Finally, coarse grained simulations are applied to probe the formation of the quaternary structure of e.g. Vpu of HIV-1 [5].

Track 13: Structural Biology in Cancer Research

One of the major areas of interest is #cancer research. Cancer is defined as the abnormal growth of cells. There are numerous types of cancer that affects people of all age. #Structural biology combines with #molecular biology in order to design novel drugs mainly to cure #cancer. The biologists carry out research in order to understand the #biomolecules, identify different #drug targets and improvise #cancer therapies

Track 15: Recent Advances in Structural Biology

#Structuralbiology is the oldest of all biological disciplines and is still an expanding field. The main goal of structural biology is to achieve a complete understanding about the #cellular structure in relation to the molecular mechanisms involved in the cellular processes. New insights are currently emerging into the #macromolecular structures which involves in the #signal transduction. It encompasses a full range of relationship from tissues to molecules. Structural biology has a very broad range and is highly diversified.

Submit your abstract: TRACK 3: Molecular Modeling and Dynamics

Molecular modeling is a scientific field of simulation of molecular systems. It represents the molecular structure numerically and simulating its behavior with the equations of quantum physics. Basically, it provides a tool to visualize 3D structure and to analyze the properties and behavior of the molecules on atomic level. It is widely used in drug designing to identify new lead compounds.
