A new protein ligand binding sites prediction method based on the integration of protein sequence conservation information

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 3287474
PMID: 22373099
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-12-S14-S9

[…] In this study, a regularly used dataset [] is chosen as the standard test data, which consists of 210 non-duplicated protein-ligand complexes derived from the Protein Ligand Database (PLD) []. A rough statistics on the protein dataset classification has been shown in Figure . Furthermore, in order to assess the binding site prediction performance of our met […]


Sequence and structural features of carbohydrate binding in proteins and assessment of predictability using a neural network

BMC Struct Biol
PMCID: 1780050
PMID: 17201922
DOI: 10.1186/1472-6807-7-1

[…] This is a non-redundant data set of ligand-binding proteins developed for the current study. To begin with, all the 485 protein-ligand complexes were downloaded from Protein-Ligand Database [] (v1.3 as on 25/01/06). Redundancy among sequences was first removed by using CD-HIT program from [] with a threshold of 40% sequence identity. This resulted in 178 clusters. […]
