Protein protein docking using region based 3D Zernike descriptors

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 2800122
PMID: 20003235
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-10-407

[…] ispensable component in a flexible docking prediction in combination with explicit conformational sampling scheme, such as "ab initio" structure modeling methods (e.g. ROSETTA [], TASSER [], CABS [], TOUCHSTONE [],) and molecular dynamics approaches [,], that are aimed at handling alternative conformation explicitly. Since even the state-of-the-art ab initio modeling methods are still not capable […]


Ab initio modeling of small proteins by iterative TASSER simulations

BMC Biol
PMCID: 1878469
PMID: 17488521
DOI: 10.1186/1741-7007-5-17

[…] ]. Using the ROSETTA program [], Simon et al reported 73 successful structure predictions out of 172 target proteins with lengths of < 150 residues, with Cα-RMSD < 7Å in the top five models []. Using TOUCHSTONE-II software, Zhang et al reported 83 foldable cases from 125 target proteins (up to 174 residues) with Cα-RMSD < 6.5Å in the top five models []. Recently, Bradley et al demonstrated an exci […]
