Figure 1. Comparison of the hydrogen-bonding interactions, chemical structures, and relative spatial arrangements of nucleotides in the six dominant modes of G·A pairing and in a canonical Watson–Crick G–C pair. Hydrogen bonds are shown by thin dashed lines, with arrows directed toward base/backbone atoms capable of accepting protons. Structures were generated with 3DNA(24) and rendered in PyMOL (www.pymol.org) using the average rigid-body parameters in Table 1 and a canonical A-RNA backbone.(34) Structures are depicted in the standard reference frame of G.(30) Color-coding denotes the mode of base association: sheared m–M (dark blue); imino W–W (gray); m+m (pink); m–m (red); m+W (light blue); m–W (magenta); canonical (white), where the combinations of signs and letters denote the orientation (parallel + /antiparallel –) and the approximate sites (minor, m; major, M; Watson–Crick, W edges) of base association.(27) Interestingly, less than 10% of the + states reflect an anti-to-syn sugar–base rearrangement, and these examples all involve adenine.

Use Photoshop to add labels and dashed lines on each figure.

Hi Shuxiang,

Thank you for posting these details used to create figure 1 of our ACS Biochemistry paper on G.A pairs. Your efforts serve as another concrete example of how to reproduce results published in a scientific journal. Ironically, reproducibility of scientific publications has become a fashionable topic nowadays, even in leading journals.

Best regards,

Xiang-Jun


PS: You may want to use the code tag (represented by # in the tools menu) to delineate the commands to make them stands out (for easy copy-and-paste). For example, for figure 1A, you could get the following results:

Code: Bash
  1. x3dna_utils cp_std rna
  2. rebuild -atomic 1-a.par 1-a.pdb
  3. pymol 1-a.pdb
  4. bg_color white
  5. set ray_opaque_background, off
  6. set ray_shadows,off
  7. preset.ball_and_stick(selection='all', mode=1)
  8. set sphere_scale, 0.18, (all)
  9. set_color mycolor, [51,51,255]
  10. set_bond stick_color, mycolor, all
  11. color mycolor, all
  12. ray

There are many versions and modifications of the figures. For some figures, I don't remember exactly what the codes I once used. I need some time to figure them out.
