DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0183060

[…] [,]. the model was further validated by whatcheck (). the ramachandran plot for 3d structure of melf was also drawn (). the validated structure was used to identify a druggable pocket/site using pocket-finder, q-site finder [] and incasitefinder []. the top-scoring pockets were scrutinized to identify a pocket with better druggability index. one such pocket on melf was shortlisted […]

[…] the templates used in protein modeling to identify the catalytic residues in hps. furthermore, active pocket sites in the predicted structures of hps were identified using pocasa (yu et al. ) and pocket-finder (laurie and jackson, ) servers. the ppm server (lomize et al. ) was used for calculating spatial positions in membranes of hps. the profunc (laskowski et al. ) web server was used […]

[…] is documented. though the dogsitescorer predicts the druggable protein cavities, the host homologous proteins were further subjected to castp (computed atlas of surface topography of proteins) [], pocket-finder and q-sitefinder [] to get more reliable and robust results about the druggable cavities of the target proteins., 3d structure information and druggability analyses are important […]

[…] space in a grid and identifies clefts by scanning areas that are enclosed on both sides by the protein’s atoms. an alpha-shape algorithm is used by cast [] and apropos []. drugsite [] and pocket-finder [], in addition to the protein’s shape, also consider physicochemical properties for identification of ligand binding pockets. further geometrical algorithms are travel depth [], voidoo […]
