Computational Modeling And In Silico Characterization Of Rabies Virus Glycoprotein And Nucleoprotein

Author: LALIT SAMANT, SHRADDHA MEHTA, ABHAY CHOWDHARY
Abstract: A three dimensional structure of rabies virus glycoprotein (G) and nucleoprotein (N) were developed using homology modeling approach in the present study. Both G and N sequences were physio-chemically and functionally characterized using various bioinformatics tools such as the Expasy ProtParam, Cysteine Recognition server, Pfam, CDD, SOPMA and TmPred. Secondary structure analysis showed 33.59% and 39.33% alpha helix content in G and N respectively making it stable for modeling. Computational modeling of the G structure was done using 2cmzB, 2cn2A, 1wOrA, 3cm9S and 1kb0A templates in I-TASSER workspace and validated using Procheck and RAMPAGE while the N structure was generated using 2gtt.1 as the template through SWISS-MODEL and validated using QMEAN. Ramachandran plot analysis of G showed that conformations for 79% of amino acid residues are within the most favored regions and the C-score, expected TM score and RMSD results validated the final refined model as reliable. The QMEAN and Z score of the modeled N protein was found to be 0.499 and -2.80 respectively suggesting the final model to be steadfast. The fully modeled structure may serve as templates for future drug designing endeavors.
