[Molecular-modelling] ITD-Modelling

Hello mailing-list!

Actually I'm about to create a model of a tyrosine-receptor-kinase 
(named FLT3 - pdb-code: 1rjb). However, the problem is that I have to 
model a mutation of this receptor. A point mutation would be easy to 
handle, but in my case the receptor contains a so called "internal 
tandem duplication" which is an insert whose length is ~13-30 amino 
acids at a specific point. The inserted sequence is out of the same 
exon, so the native structure of this sequence within the wild type is 
known.

Example (just to illustrate!):

wild type:

XXXXXXXXXXYYYYYYYYYY

mutation
XXXXXXXXXXaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaYYYYYYYYYY    (a = itd)


Any suggestions how to model such a ITD-sequence into a wild type 
receptor?

Thanks so far.
