To what extent do structural changes in catalytic metal sites affect enzyme function?

PMCID: 5760197
PMID: 29161638
DOI: 10.1016/j.jinorgbio.2017.11.002

[…] manual examination of functional and structural details extracted from various sources, which typically included: the publications describing the structures deposited in the PDB (Protein Data Bank) ; MetalPDB ; Metal-MACiE ; PDBSprotEC ; BRENDA . To compare metal-binding sites of metalloenzymes with known structure we used the MetalS2 tool (Metal Sites Superposition tool) ; to identify metal-bindi […]


Minimal Functional Sites in Metalloproteins and Their Usage in Structural Bioinformatics

Int J Mol Sci
PMCID: 4881497
PMID: 27153067
DOI: 10.3390/ijms17050671

[…] To enable analyses of the kind mentioned above, we created the MetalPDB resource [], a database of MFSs derived from the structures deposited in the PDB. MetalPDB is available at The crucial difference between databases of metal-bin […]


Hidden relationships between metalloproteins unveiled by structural comparison of their metal sites

Sci Rep
PMCID: 4377587
PMID: 25820752
DOI: 10.1038/srep09486

[…] Ss to get clustered. (i) The first reason is that sites with very high structural similarity and found in different metalloprotein families are identified. (ii) The second cause becomes relevant when MetalPDB did not group metalloproteins of the same family, typically because of missing domain information, and consequently assigned them to different EGs. In this case, our second stage analysis put […]
