Kinemage exercises

This section contains a couple of molecular graphic exercises to help you visualize some aspects of carbohydrates and carbohydrate-active enzymes.

Anomers and conformers

Molecular visualization of the anomers (alpha and beta) and conformers (chair and boat) of the monosaccharide glucose.

There are two ways to run the exercise, depending on your computer:

  • To run directly in your browser, click here.
    • Requires Java Virtual Machine version 1.5 or higher. Check your version and/or get Java VM here.
  • Set up and run KiNG on your own computer:
    • Download and install KiNG following the directions on the KiNG WWW page.
    • Download the Kinemage file by right-clicking this link and selecting "Save as..."
    • Run KiNG and open the Kinemage file from where you saved it using File->Open file in the menu bar.

Note: See the Text window in KiNG for a full description of the Kinemage.

Note: Due to a problem with the Kinemage file itself, the second animation ("2-Animate") causes all of the atoms of the beta anomer appear in grey, rather than in color, as they should.

Lysozyme

Molecular visualization of various saccharide complexes, both observed and modelled, of hen egg white lysozyme (HEWL).

There are two ways to run the exercise, depending on your computer:

  • To run directly in your browser, click here.
    • Requires Java Virtual Machine version 1.5 or higher. Check your version and/or get Java VM here.
  • Set up and run KiNG on your own computer:
    • Download and install KiNG following the directions on the KiNG WWW page.
    • Download the Kinemage file by right-clicking this link and selecting "Save as..."
    • Run KiNG and open the Kinemage file from where you saved it using File->Open file in the menu bar.

Note: See the Text window in KiNG for a full description of the Kinemage.
