Indonesian avian influenza H274Y mutant neuraminidase homology models assessment


Five models of Indonesian H274Y mutant neuralminidase type 1 (N1) were generated from the template 3CKZ by homology modeling. The template has the best similarity percentage 97% with the model sequence. The models was evaluated to search the best model with DOPE, 3D-profiles and PROCHECK in a good rank. The results show model 3 as a potential model to be used in the simulation with the lowest DOPE score, highest verify-3D score and from Ramachandran plots we inferred that it also shared the 1st rank with model 4 based on the 99.4% of the residues found, without Glycine and Proline, at the most favoured and additionally allowed region of both model structures.
