[…] shold to manually curated data to provide some insight into the relevance of the best matches.In order to test the impact of this uncertainty, we have examined a manually curated set of PDBs from the M-CSA (). The M-CSA is a database of enzyme mechanisms, and selects a representative PDB code for each entry using a set of selection criteria, which include best resolution, lack of mutations, and pr […]
