AKeco Structure Library

The AKecoLib contains 46 models of E. coli adenylate kinase structures that were used to compare a computational approach to simulating macromolecular transitions (dynamic importance sampling) to experimentally observed structures.1 The structures cover all conformations of AdK, from closed to open.

The structures in the library were generated by homology modelling2 of the AKeco sequence on AdK structures found in the protein data bank (only variants with the LID domain were considered). For further details please refer to the paper.1

When using these structures in your own published work please cite Beckstein et al1.
