I am looking for programs that can draw schematic drawings of protein
structures. I am interested in the following two types of drawings:
(1) schematic representation of the [main chain] hydrogen bonding
pattern (based on known 3D structure)
(2) schematic representation of the domain structure and
disulfide bonding pattern, using a chain of several circles, each circle
representing a residue, and the type of the residue written in the
circle. This chain of circles is folded in 2D to approximately represent
the domain structure and the disulfide bonding pattern.
Such drawings often appear in journals but I don't know any program that
can easily draw such things. (As to the hydrogen bonding pattern, I heard
of a program called HERA but I have no idea how to get it.)
Anyone can help?
