ToABnt allows the user to convert a nucleotide or a polynucleotide chain or chain pair from A-form to B-form and vice versa.

When you ALT-CLICK on any atom, you are prompted to convert its chain from its current form to either the A-form or the B-form. The two forms differ primarily in the pucker conformation of their sugar moieties. The A-form has its sugars in the C3'-endo conformation whereas the B-form has it in the C2'-endo conformation. The A-form is characteristic of RNA while the B-form is characteristic of DNA.

When you SHIFT-CLICK on any atom, you are prompted to convert just the selected nucleotide.

This routine is called automatically by the Plico routine Polymeraze when a polynucleotide is generated.

ToABnt is a member of the Plico suite of protein folding tools described here. It may be installed and accessed as a macro with the file:

Title=PLICO toAB NT
Script=script <path to your script directory>/toABnt.spt;plico_to_ab_nt
saved as toABnt.macro in your .jmol/macros directory as described in Macro.

Copy and paste the following into a text editor and save in your scripts directory as toABnt.spt.
