CarbM - Version 1.0

CarbM is a web-based tool used to build and study three-dimensional structures of carbohydrates.
How to use:
  1. Select the first glycan (first display); the configuration (α or β); the constitutional isomerism (D or L) and the number of the carbon atom involved with the glycosidic bond.
  2. Select the second glycan (second display); the configuration (α or β); the constitutional isomerism (D or L) and the number of the carbon atom involved with the glycosidic bond.
  3. Inform the dihedral angles (phi and psi) for the glycosidic bond. Default dihedral angles are 90,90 degrees.
  4. Press Submit and the carbohydrate three-dimensional structure will be generated and presented in the third display.
  5. Build more complex carbohydrate structures selecting the monosaccharide number in the third display and press the button To Continue, the current structure will appear in first display, select the number of the carbon atom involved with the glycosidic bond and the process can be repeated from step 2.
  6. Press Download PDB to save the carbohydrate 3D structure.
