Computational Analysis of Gynura bicolor Bioactive Compounds as Dipeptidyl Peptidase IV Inhibitor

Adv Bioinformatics
PMCID: 5591938
PMID: 28932239
DOI: 10.1155/2017/5124165

[…] determinant of substrate specificity. The selection of the largest binding pocket of DPPIV receptor PDB ID: 4A5S for ligand docking was supported by the physicochemical features of the pocket itself. SplitPocket analysis had identified the presence of a split pocket which is detectable when a functional pocket binds to a ligand, substrate, or other proteins or peptides causing the interaction betw […]


Molecular Basis of ABHD5 Lipolysis Activation

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5314347
PMID: 28211464
DOI: 10.1038/srep42589

[…] a refined model using the weighted Delaunay triangulation. We then identified putative pockets (local surfaces) of structural models by applying the flow algorithm (http://cast.engr.uic.edu/) and the SplitPocket algorithm (http://pocket.med.wayne.edu/) to characterize local protein surfaces. For each identified pocket, we computed geometric measurements for pocket residues, solvent accessible area […]


Building a virtual ligand screening pipeline using free software: a survey

Brief Bioinform
PMCID: 4793892
PMID: 26094053
DOI: 10.1093/bib/bbv037

[…] . Should the binding site not be known from previous crystallized protein–ligand complexes, several binding pocket prediction methods are available, e.g. MetaPocket [], DoGSiteScorer [], CASTp [] and SplitPocket [] (see [] for a review of related approaches). Next, a quality control is necessary, as protein crystal structures in public repositories like the PDB often contain errors or missing resi […]
