Folding correctors of F508del-CFTR were discovered by in silico structure-based screening utilizing homology models of CFTR. The intracellular segment of CFTR was modeled and three cavities were identified at inter-domain interfaces: (1) Interface between the two Nucleotide Binding Domains (NBDs); (2) Interface between NBD1 and Intracellular Loop (ICL) 4,(More)
Weighted geometric docking is a prediction algorithm that matches weighted molecular surfaces. Each molecule is represented by a grid of complex numbers, storing information about the shape of the molecule in the real part and weight information in the imaginary part. The weights are based on experimental biochemical and biophysical data or on theoretical(More)
The diverse selection of targets in the CAPRI experiments provides grounds for determining the limits of our rigid-body docking program MolFit, and for extending it. We find that the sensitivity of MolFit is high, enabling it to produce reasonably accurate docking solutions when the structures undergo moderate local conformation changes upon complex(More)
We submitted predictions for all seven targets in the CAPRI experiment. For four targets, our submitted models included acceptable, medium accuracy predictions of the structures of the complexes, and for a fifth target we identified the location of the binding site of one of the molecules. We used a weighted-geometric docking algorithm in which contacts(More)
We present the results for CAPRI Round 30, the first joint CASP-CAPRI experiment, which brought together experts from the protein structure prediction and protein-protein docking communities. The Round comprised 25 targets from amongst those submitted for the CASP11 prediction experiment of 2014. The targets included mostly homodimers, a few homotetramers,(More)
