Seshadri, K and Balaji, PV and Rao, VS and Vishveshwara, S (1993) Computer modelling studies of ribonuclease A-pyrimidine nucleotide complexes. In: Journal of Biomolecular Structure & Dynamics, 11 (2). pp. 395-415.Full text not available from this repository.
Different modes of binding of pyrimidine monophosphates 2'-UMP, 3'-UMP, 2'-CMP and 3'-CMP to ribonuclease (RNase) A are studied by energy minimization in torsion angle and subsequently in Cartesian coordinate space. The results are analysed in the light of primary binding sites. The hydrogen bonding pattern brings out roles for amino acids such as Asn44 and Ser123 apart from the well known active site residues viz., His12,Lys41,Thr45 and His119. Amino acid segments 43-45 and 119-121 seem to be guiding the ligand binding by forming a pocket. Many of the active site charged residues display considerable movement upon nucleotide binding.
