PREDICTION OF THREE DIMENSIONAL MODEL OF, γ- HEXACHLOROCYCLOHEXANE DEHYDROCHLORINASE (LINA) IN SPHINGOMONAS PAUCIMOBILIS UT26Abstract
The present study undertaken to predict the three dimensional structure of γ-Hexachlorocyclohexane dehydrochlorinase (linA) in Sphingomonas paucimobilis UT26. γ-Hexachlorocyclohexane dehydrochlorinase (linA) catalyzes the initial steps in the biotransformation of the important insecticide γ-hexachlorocyclohexane (γ-HCH) by the soil bacterium Sphingomonas paucimobilisUT26. Stereo chemical analysis of the reaction products formed during conversion of γ-HCH by linA was identified from structural database using homology modeling or comparative modeling approach. Based on the knowledge of the template, a three-dimensional model was predicted and processed in to energy minimization, Ramachandran plot analysis, quality assessment and finally deposited into Protein Model Database.
