Tertiary structures of MDM2 and p53 optimized truncates, composed of amino acids 23-119 and 18-26, were obtained from protein databank (PDB code: 1T4F) (Figure 1).
HEX results: The docking results performed by HEX for FHIT truncates with complete MDM2 and MDM2 optimized part, p53 optimized part are shown in tables 2-4.
As table 4 illustrates, the complexes of truncates 2 ([beta] 1-2), 9 ([beta]5-7, [alpha]l), 11 ([alpha]l) and MDM2 optimized part interact with p53 optimized part in higher total energy status.
Given the interaction of full FHIT with optimized models of p53 and MDM2, it is evident that FHIT truncates have higher affinity to interact with MDM2 optimized part than p53 optimized model.
