Title: Supplementary Figure 3 -- four base triplets in the tRNA mimic (4p5j)
Post by: xiangjun on July 06, 2015, 12:57:49 pm
Figure S3: The four base triplets and associated hydrogen bonds (dashed lines) detected by DSSR in the viral tRNA mimic (PDB id: 4p5j) from turnip yellow mosaic virus. (A) GUC (G10,U11,C49) lies at the elbow of the L-shaped tertiary structure, with G10 and U11 forming a GpU dinucleotide platform. (B) CGU (C58,G72,U73) includes another GpU (G72 and U73) platform, with a single base-base hydrogen bond. (C) CGA (C59,G71,A75) forms a type I A-minor motif. (D) CGC (C61,G68,C77) contains a loop nucleotide (C61) from the hairpin-type pseudoknot. The last three triplets (B-D) are located at the 3'-end of the structure around the hairpin-type pseudoknot.

Starting from "4p5j.pdb" downloaded from RCSB PDB, here is the complete script to get each of the four base-triplet images in png format.
