Profacgen Adds Protein Structure Modeling Service to Its Molecular Modeling Offerings

Profacgen, a US-based biotech company, has added one additional molecular modeling service, protein structure modeling, to its existing custom protein services.

The three-dimensional structure of a protein provides essential information about its biological function and facilitates the design of therapeutic drugs that specifically bind to the protein target. Recent years have witnessed a tremendous increase in the number of experimentally determined protein structures. It is, however, still generally tedious and time-consuming to solve protein structures with experimental approaches. Therefore, computational approaches represent an alternative and supplement to experimental methods to obtain three-dimensional structure of a protein.

By taking advantages of computational modeling methods, Profacgen is able to predict the three-dimensional structure of proteins of its customers’ interest. Over the years, Profacgen has accumulated abundant experience with the modeling of various kinds of proteins. The resultant structural models, according to Profacgen’s official speaker, are all quality validated and can be utilized for a variety of purposes, e.g. Annotation of genes with unknown function and structure-based drug design.

According to its official website, several types of modeling are available for customers to choose in Profacgen including: homology modeling, membrane protein modeling, antibody modeling, fusion protein modeling, and post-translational modification.
