[…] additional scenarios, including protein flexibility. below we describe an automated docking protocol to account for large scale motions of the proteins backbone. it operates similar to the flexdock algorithm () ()., partition into rigid parts—by applying the hingeprot method () on the given input protein, we detect the rigid parts and the hinge regions connecting them. the method […]

[…] algorithm is implemented for geometric alignment of the two 3d protein surface patches. compared with the fast fourier transform-based global geometric matching algorithm and other methods, our flexdock system generates much less false-positive docking results, which benefits identification of the complementary candidates. our computational experiments show the advantages of the proposed […]

[…] of a patch if we account for backbone flexibility explicitly. recently there has been progress in modeling backbone flexibility in the initial surface matching stage of docking. for example, in flexdock [,], molecules are decomposed into rigid domains, which are docked separately and then the possible dockings are reconnected using a graph-based algorithm. rosettadock [,] creates a "fold […]
