Bioinformatics Analysis of SARS Proteins and Molecular Dynamics Simulated Structure of an Alpha-helix Motif
Abstract and Figures
The complete sequencing of the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) coronavirus (CoV) within a short span of time is a remarkable achievement, which has given the scope for extensive research on the virus. 1 Sequence analysis reveals the phylogeny of SARS-CoV that the genome has most of the characteristic features of a coronavirus, but it belongs to a new group which is sufficiently different from all known coronaviruses. All the coronaviruses consist of four important structural proteins: spike glycoprotein (S), small envelope protein (E), matrix glycoprotein (M) and nucleocapsid protein (N). The E protein comprised of at least 76 amino acids (aa) is a pivotal player in the morphogenesis of the virion envelope by interacting with the M protein.
