[…] interface propensity are predicted as ‘interface’, where n is the number of residues that makes at least one contact in the model structure of the complex. interface predictions using pepsite () and pep-sitefinder () were made using their respective web servers. for pep-sitefinder, the top n residues were selected in the same way (except for 2jam, for which prediction failed). for pepsite, […]

[…] probes in identifying hot spots in structures and was more recently extended to include any user provided small molecule as an additional probe [–]. many other binding pocket finding programs exist. pep-sitefinder [], sitemap available through schrodinger [] and molsite [] are a few of these programs., when the binding pocket of a target is known one significant characteristic to be calculated […]
