Vijay Jesuraj SA, Jeya Praya SM, Ravikumar M., Model of protein docking l-glutaminase for anti-cancer activity, Onl J Bioinform., 16(3): 293-302, 2015. L-Glutaminase from Aeromonas veronii was modeled and evaluated for docking with open eye software against B-cell lymphoma 2 (BCL2) involved in colon adenocarcinoma. A 3D model of L-Glutaminase was generated using 2BY A as template with Modeller7v7. The model was refined by Procheck and Verify 3D graph. ARG 18, THR15, LEU42 residues in L-glutaminase had strong hydrogen bonding with Iturin A. Docking revealed highest L-glutaminase binding value of and orientation in BCL-2 binding pocket surrounding active site suggesting that it may inhibit BCL-2.
