Kaur J, Mohan A, Kumar S, Pallavi A, Malakar K., In silico homology model of mutated PTEN protein inducing meningioma, Onl J Bioinform, 13 (1):50-58, 2012. PTEN a tumor suppressor gene, encodes protein as a dual specificity protein lipid phosphatase regulating phosphoinositol-3-kinase/Akt signal pathway causing cell cycle arrest in G1-phase and apoptosis. A protein model was generated using MODELLER with 1D5R:A template. The best model had a DOPE score of -40224.32813 with 88.4% residues in the most favorable region of a Ramachandran plot. In the generously allowed and disallowed regions residues were 1.9% and 0.3% respectively. Loop modeling using MODLOOP analyzed by PROCHECK 3.0 showed 88.4% residues in the most favorable region and 0.0% in both generously allowed and disallowed regions of a Ramachandran plot.


Key words: PTEN protein, Meningioma, Homology Modeling, MODELLER.
