EASTstroudsburg gave a good explanation for how to see where each amino acid is (side note: if you like your Jmol visualization to be nice and neat, you can use "select [number] and sidechain" and then "wireframe 200" – or "spacefill 200", as EAST said – to just show the sidechain, without the amino and carboxyl groups sticking out from the backbone).On the regional test, one of the questions on the regional test had to do with Cys203 and Arg233.
It asked for the importance of these amino acids to XIAP.
How do you deal with these questions, what commands do you do?
I know they are bound to come up during states.
This year, in my prebuild kit, I got endcaps that were more or less exactly 2 cm long, and are very cylindrical, made of thin, matte plastic. This was the first time I'd seen endcaps like that – in past years, the kit has included shorter (maybe 1-1.5 cm), more rounded endcaps made of a thicker, more rubbery material. The ones I got this year with the Regional on-site were also the short/rubbery kind.SILLY, BUT SOMEWHAT NECESSARY QUESTION ALERT: how long are your guys' endcaps?
I can't believe I haven't realized that <facepalm>. Thank goodness I've been paying attention in Bio class lately, we're just getting to knockout mice and just went through protein synthesis. My research for state is now much more streamlinedMy advice is to treat the on-site like it's a pre-build.
If by "it" you mean the Protein Modeling Wiki or previous comments in this/past years' threads, the only reason it says 22 gauge is because that's what I personally like to use – it's actually quite sturdy, without being too hard to bend, and it's fairly unobtrusive (so it doesn't clutter up your model).For people who have used jewelry wire, what gauges have you used? I know it says 22 gauge, but to me that seemed kind of small and difficult to keep in shape. I'm using 12 gauge as a creative addition, which to me is a lot stronger and sturdier.
