Promode Elastic

Database of normal mode analysis of PDB data using elastic network model in torsional angle space

ProMode-Elastic is a database of normal mode analysis of PDB data. The normal mode analysis is performed by the program PDBETA we have developed. PDBETA is a program of Elastic-network-model based normal mode analysis in Torsional Angle space for PDB data. PDBETA can describe molecular structures with relatively smaller number of degrees of freedom, and take into computation not only proteins but also DNA, RNA, and ligand molecules (hydrogen atoms and water molecules are excluded currently to suppress the number of variables).

In each protein page its characteristic dynamic features can be observed through animation and displacement vectors on Molmil viewer. We hope that a user learns more about dynamics from these pages than a static three-dimensional structure image of PDB data.
