Creating apo OEDesignUnits from a PDB file¶
Preparation of a biological structure file (PDB, mmCIF) to a fully charged, hydrogenated, molecular componentized object (design unit; DU; OEDesignUnit) is one of the more advanced functionalities offered through Spruce TK. This example shows how to construct apo DUs using an input PDB file and the OEMakeDesignUnits function.
Command Line Interface¶
This example uses an input PDB file, and will output a set of DUs from it to a temporary directory (see OEMakeDesignUnits for details on the API).
prompt> make_apo_design_units <input biomolecular PDB> <site_residue> [<electron density mtz>] [<LoopModelingTemplateDB>]
prompt> make_apo_design_units 1w50.pdb "ASP:228: :A" 1w50.mtz spruce_bace.loop_db
will generate the following output (failing to add partial charges to iodine):
