Motion in Immunoglobulin (CDR motion) [igcdr]
[ jump to morphs ]
Classification Known Fragment Motion, Hinge Mechanism [F-h-2]
Structures 1GIG Bizebard et al. structure with HAHC19 Uncomplexed [ PartsList ] 1HIL 17/9 Conformation 1 [ PartsList ] 1HIM 17/9 Conformation 2 [ PartsList ] ???? Complex structure not in the databank on 13-Dec-95.HC19 Complexed
Description For 17/9, upon binding antigen the H3 loop in this antibody switches in a different conformation. This moves alpha carbons by up to 4.6 A and sidechains atoms by up to 9 A. For HC, upon binding antigen (HA) the H3 loop in this antibody switches to a different conformation. This moves sidechains atoms by up to 10 A. (from the paper). Heavy chain residues Y102 and D103 move the most.
Particular values describing motion Annotation Level (1..10) = 4 Maximum CA displacement (A) = 4.6 (For 17/9) Maximum atomic displacement (A) = 10 (For HC19) Maximum atomic displacement (A) = 9 (For 17/9) Experimental Methods = x (Traditional x-ray) Creation Date = 19970822 Modification Date = 19970822
