ProModel is a complete package for modeling proteins, whose crystal structure is unknown based on the amino acid sequences of a close homologue. ProModel allows homology modeling from either a selected template or a user defined template. Users can perform an automated homology modeling simply by reading in the template file or can perform a knowledge based manual modeling by specific loop insertions or by changing specific amino acid residues. A local BLAST speeds up the process of modeling.
ProModel enables an exhaustive analysis of the target protein structure, active site and channels. The user can conveniently view, edit and superimpose proteins with ProModel. Facilities to distribute the secondary structure elements, distribute the Phi-Psi angles of residues in Ramachandran plot, identify and visualize cavities and channels make it a very useful product.
ProModel is available for both Linux and Windows® operating systems.
