Shaping modern human skull through epigenetic, transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulation of the RUNX2 master bone gene

Study of RUNX2 locus in modern and ancient humans The sequences of the RUNX2 locus (Chr6:45,318,000–45,670,000 hg38, for a total of 352.000 bases) have been aligned in AMH and ancient species’ (Neandertal and Denisovan) genomes to map the changes occurred during recent evolution. We have identified 459 and 470 changes…

rosetta fold vs alphafold 2

S. Both AlphaFold and Xu use simple folding engines L-BFGS (L- Broyden–Fletcher–Goldfarb– Shanno (BFGS)) and CNS (Crystallography and NMR System), respectively, i.e., improvements come from a better energy potential using distributional information. The phase problem is a problem, to the point that in the past decade, several structures, such as M-PMV…

Interpreting I-TASSER output

Interpreting I-TASSER output 1 Hi, Recently, i have received a protein structure result from I-TASSER. Here i have few questions to interpret the result: What does it mean by solvent accessibility value (0 to 9)? Does it mean near to 9 is more accessible to solvents? And if it likes…

The LpoA activator is required to stimulate the peptidoglycan polymerase activity of its cognate cell wall synthase PBP1a

Significance Class A penicillin-binding proteins (aPBPs) assemble the bacterial cell wall and are the targets of penicillin and related β-lactam antibiotics. In gram-negative bacteria, the aPBPs require outer membrane lipoproteins to function. However, little is known about how these proteins promote the activity of their cognate synthases in cells. Here,…
