Problem in .Out file
« on: June 15, 2007, 12:31:06 am »
hello sir
I carried simulations of DNA seq CGATCG alone using MOE s/w. when i converted the its .Pdb file into .Out file m getting only 3 base pairs
Number of base-pairs: 3
Number of atoms: 246
RMSD of the bases (----- for WC bp, + for isolated bp, x for helix change)

            Strand I                    Strand II          Helix
   1   (0.049) -:...4_:[..T]T-*---G[..G]:...8_:- (0.090)     |
   2   (0.080) -:...3_:[..A]A-*---A[..A]:...9_:- (0.059)     |
   3   (0.077) -:...2_:[..G]G-*---T[..T]:..10_:- (0.036)     |

Note: This structure contains 3[0] non-Watson-Crick base-pairs.

Can you pls explain me y m gettng diffrnt results.

Firstly, please refer to a related post for background information.

More specifically, your DNA structures are too irregular to be recognized by "find_pair" as you would expect. The output file from "analyze" follows whatever base-pair information produced by "find_pair", and thus the "problems" your noticed. You could run "find_pair" to create an approximate starting input file and modify it accordingly as you see fit. The file format produced by "find_pair" is documented at the 3DNA homepage.

Also note that you can now add attachments to your post in this forum.
