2017 Practice Model

Based on the 2016 State Onsite Model using 1js3.pdb


The 2017 Practice Model should represent amino acids 253-317 of chain A of the protein Dopa Decarboxylase based on the PDB file 1js3.pdb. The key sidechains to display are Lysine 303 and Phenylalanine 297. This section is 64 amino acids long and will require a toober that is 128cm long at the scale of 1 amino acid = 2cm.
