PMCID: 5712783
PMID: 29225431
DOI: 10.6026/97320630013380

[…] active site of vapc9 and vapc10 []. metapocket uses consensus approach to detect ligand-binding sites by employing eight methods: ligsite, pass, surfnet, fpocket, ghecom, concavity, poc asa and q-sitefinder., protein-protein association data of 79 ta systems of mtb h37rv was extracted from string v 10.5. to completely explore the ppi data, the search was set to include all the source […]

PMCID: 5557769
PMID: 28855900
DOI: 10.3389/fimmu.2017.00925

[…] different state and sequences of the myosin models, the binding cavity was found by assistant methods based on the literature data (). the precise binding cavity was determined via ch3 probe by q-sitefinder [sp5] and blind docking by autodock3.05 [sp6]. the steps were as follows: dt-13 and homology model of nmmhc iia were prepared using ligprep and protein preparation wizard in maestro 8.0 […]

PMCID: 5498776
PMID: 28690376
DOI: 10.6026/97320630013122

[…] with discovery studio modeler 3.5., the schrodinger software package (https://www.schrodinger .com) was used for the molecular dynamics simulation of the predicted tmem 50a model., we used q-sitefinder to locate binding site. q-sitefinder (http://www.bioinformatics.leeds.ac.uk/qsitefinder) uses the interaction energy between the protein and a simple van der waals probe to locate […]

PMID: 28272423
DOI: 10.1038/srep43908

[…] activation., the x-ray crystal structure of the soluble gas6/axl complex (rcsb pdb entry 2c5d) was used to identify possible small molecule ligand binding sites. four independent programs: (i) the q-sitefinder, (ii) the sitemap (schrödinger suite, ny), (iii) the siteid (sybyl, tripos associates, st. louis, mo) and sitefinder (moe, ccg, montreal, canada) were used for this purpose. all ligand […]

DOI: 10.3762/bjoc.12.267

[…] its binding pocket, it is not necessarily true for all target proteins. energy-based methods have been developed to address this issue and have shown more success than geometry-based methods []. in q-sitefinder a van der waals probe is used and the interaction energy between the probe and the protein is found in order to identify binding sites of the protein []. the sitehound program is another […]
