Computational approaches for de novo design and redesign of metal binding sites on proteins

Biosci Rep
PMCID: 5482196
PMID: 28167677
DOI: 10.1042/BSR20160179

[…] the other hand, MetalPredator [] utilizes two libraries of Hidden Markov Model profiles representative of Pfam domains and structural motifs that bind Fe/S clusters. Some prediction software such as FINDSITE-metal [], mFASD [], TEMSP [], FEATURE metal scanning [–] utilize structural information for prediction of the metal ion-binding sites. A few of them such as MetSite [], 3DLigandSite [], Fragm […]


Secondary Structure Preferences of Mn2+ Binding Sites in Bacterial Proteins

Adv Bioinformatics
PMCID: 3977119
PMID: 24778647
DOI: 10.1155/2014/501841

[…] r preference to bind Mn2+ than glutamic acid and histidine.Information on amino acid preferences and geometry of coordination spheres is used in algorithms for metal binding sites prediction, such as FINDSITE-metal [], MetalDetector v2.0 [], Fold-X [], and FlexX []. However, the information on preferable 3D structural motifs is available mostly for Ca2+ and Zn2+ binding proteins. Well-known EF-han […]


Unleashing the power of meta threading for evolution/structure based function inference of proteins

Front Genet
PMCID: 3686302
PMID: 23802014
DOI: 10.3389/fgene.2013.00118

[…] ly structurally similar to the target. Similar criteria are commonly used for the template identification in protein function prediction. For example, to collect functional templates, FINDSITE () and FINDSITE-metal () use a threading Z-score of ≥4, a threshold that is also used in the detection of structural templates in TASSER (). A similar method, @TOME-2, employs meta-threading to detect templa […]


Candida albicans Scavenges Host Zinc via Pra1 during Endothelial Invasion

PLoS Pathog
PMCID: 3386192
PMID: 22761575
DOI: 10.1371/journal.ppat.1002777

[…] the predicted structures. The Pra1 best structural hit (Deuterolysin from A. oryzae) was additionally identified using SWISS-MODEL tool ( and metal binding sites predicted with Findsite-metal ( and 3D ligand site ( To predict interactions between the two proteins, the structures generated in Phyre2 we […]
