Practice Model

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


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