<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0" ><tr><td valign="top" style="font: inherit;">Hello Justin and Mark,<br><br>Thanks for the reply.<br>Reason that I didnt apply loop modelling was, for that region it is not given in literature that, this region which consist of 10 residues will form a helix of will remain in loop in an disorganized way. Therefore, I was reluctant in doing loop reconstruction without prior information of this building as loop or helix.<br><br>And u rightly said that fusing non-corresponding residues will give wrong results, that's why I was asking that if there is way to go for simulation while having some missing residues.<br>But your replies suggest that the answer is no.<br><br>So, I will go for loop reconstruction and will then see what happens.<br><br>Regards<br><br><br>Thanks and Regards <br><br><div>--<br>Sonali Dhindwal</div><br><br>--- On <b>Tue, 12/10/10, Justin A.
