Phosphate binding sites identification in protein structures

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 3045618
PMID: 20974634
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkq987

[…] site in unbound protein structures makes it an ideal tool for functional annotation and for complementing docking and drug design methods. the pfinder program is available at http://pdbfun.uniroma2.it/pfinder., many important chemical reactions and molecular interactions that occur in the cell involve ligands containing the phosphate group., more than half of known proteins […]


De Orphaning the Structural Proteome through Reciprocal Comparison of Evolutionarily Important Structural Features

PLoS One
PMCID: 2362850
PMID: 18461181
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0002136

[…] specificity., alternative strategies also rely on comparisons of sequence or structure, either in whole or just in part. examples include sequence motifs , ; global fold (dali , vast , ssm , grath , pdbfun , tops , sumo , , cm ); and small structural motifs—the object of this study. in contrast to all these techniques, which seek elements of sequence or structure that are intrinsically […]


Prediction of enzyme function based on 3D templates of evolutionarily important amino acids

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 2219985
PMID: 18190718
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-9-17

[…] individual method., these other methods exploit other types of functionally relevant similarities between proteins: one such is general structural similarity (dali [], vast [], ssm [], grath [], pdbfun [], tops [], sumo [,], cm []); another is local sequence similarity of a few residues that are highly specific to function, such as pre-defined sequence motifs [,]. such motifs […]


Overview of BITS2005, the Second Annual Meeting of the Italian Bioinformatics Society

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 1866399
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-6-S4-S1

[…] together, and secondary structure guided sequence alignment is improved., ausiello et al. [] describe the query 3d program for local comparison of protein structures. query 3d is at the core of the pdbfun server [] for the identification of local structural similarities between annotated residues in proteins., d'ursi et al. [] used a flexible docking approach to characterize the molecular […]
