3D Structure modeling
rapidly converts the primary sequence of a complex carbohydrate, as defined by standard nomenclature, directly into a reliable 3D molecular model by linking together preconstructed 3D molecular templates of monosaccharides in the manner specified by the sequence and then optimizing the 3D structure using the MM3 force field.
performs an in silico glycosylation of proteins. The 3D structure of protein is required as input. Potential N-glysylations site are automatically detected. The attached glycan are constructed with SWEET-II.
Detection and Validation of Carbohydrates in PDB files
PDB CArbohydrate REsidue check (pdb-care)
checks carbohydrate residues in PDB files for errors
detects carbohydrate residues in PDB files
Carbohydrate Ramachandran Plot (CARP)
generates Ramachandran-like plots of carbohydrate linkage torsions in pdb-files.
Statistical analysis of carbohydrate properties derived from the Protein Data Bank (PDB)
performs a statistical analysis of carbohydrate torsion angles derived from the Protein Data Bank. This includes glycosidic linkage torsions, but also ring torsions, omega torsions, or NAc sidechain torsions.
generates statistics about the amino acids present in the vicinity of carbohydrate residues.
is dedicated to statistically analyse the sequences around glycosylation sites.
(LInear Notation for Unique description of Carbohydrate Structure)
Converter from CarbBank style notation (2D representation) to LINUCS format.
generates schematic drawings of oligosaccharides which are often used to display glycan structures.
SUgar MOtif search (sumo)
searches carbohydrate structures for motifs commonly used for carbohydrate classification, like N- and O-glycan cores, Lewis antigens, etc.
The purpose of this application is to calculate and display the main fragments (Band C-, Z- and Y-, A- and X-ions) of oligosaccharides that should occur in MS spectra.
Commonly, computational methods, which explore the conformational space of oligosaccharides, are discussed in conjunction with experimental results mostly derived from NMR data. The nuclear Overhauser enhancement (NOE) allows one to detect the proximity in space between protons that may be located in different, yet spatially neighbouring residues of oligosaccharides. The DISTANCE MAPPING approach allows to draw distances of equal r as a function of the appropriate F,Y coordinates. A single pair of contours drawn for the lower and upper limits of r for one NOE encloses a torus-like region which still covers an infinite number of F,Y conformations.
