Purpose

  • Learn about protein modeling and computation through the use of Maestro.
  • Plan research protocol for the rest of semester.

Procedure

  • Maestro was used to visualize the molecular structure of adenosine deaminase.
  • Different portions of the molecular structure: ligands, hydrogen bonds, residues, etc. were visualized
  • Mutations were suggested for site-directed mutagenesis for adenosine deaminase to test the specific amino acid residues in the binding pocket: E34K
