[phenixbb] sequence independent model building possible?

Thanks for all the valuable inputs.
I was able to build side chains for the core of the protein. Using this
sequence information, I was able to identify sequence family from Pfam. It
seems like it has phosphate-binding domain (I could also see a blob which
looks like a phosphate). I am using Multiple sequence alignment from the
closest Pfam hits to built sidechains for the rest of the protein. The
latest scores are, R/Rfree: 28/37; LLG=3681; TFZ=39.2
I hope to solve it very soon.
1) I had searched Dali too. These hits (with less than 2 A RMSD), when
used as phasing model in Phaser failed to yield a solution. The top hits
probably belong to the same fold but seems to have internal domain
movements. However, the core was conserved (which I recognise now as
2) Had also searched PDB for unit cell with similar dimensions without much
help. Will checkout Nearest-Cell v2.0. Thanks for the this.
3) ~20% of the structure is loop for which backbone isn't built. I hope to
model this soon.
Thanks again for all the help.

Stupidity is everyone’s birthright. However, only the learned exercise it!
