I know the sequence of the peptide. The main problem is that I don't know how to built it. Coul I do it with VMD or any other program?
Kind regards

Do you know the sequence of this peptide? If so, couldn't you build it and then "dock" it into your membrane (or a piece of it)? That's how I placed a molecule on the surface of a membrane.

Dear Users:
I need to simulate the interaction of the peptide (Bactenecine) with a phospholipid monolayer. So I havenít be able to find Bactenecinís crystal structure (pdb file) yet. Does anybody know where I could find it? Another option is to model that peptide since its amino-acid sequence, i.e, I need to make a pdb file of its random coil using special coordinates of its atoms (it is a 19-reside peptide). I havenít worked in this before. Could I use VMD to do it? Or is there any program to do it? I hope anybody can help me.
Kind regards
