Protein metal binding sites in the pre-bound (apo) state, and their rearrangements upon metal binding were not analyzed previously at a database scale. Such a study may provide valuable information for metal binding site prediction and design. A high resolution, nonredundant dataset of 210 metal binding sites was created, containing all available(More)
Alternative splicing (AS) generates vast transcriptomic and proteomic complexity. However, which of the myriad of detected AS events provide important biological functions is not well understood. Here, we define the largest program of functionally coordinated, neural-regulated AS described to date in mammals. Relative to all other types of AS within this(More)
We describe a suite of SPACE tools for analysis and prediction of structures of biomolecules and their complexes. LPC/CSU software provides a common definition of inter-atomic contacts and complementarity of contacting surfaces to analyze protein structure and complexes. In the current version of LPC/CSU, analyses of water molecules and nucleic acids have(More)
Metal ions are crucial for protein function. They participate in enzyme catalysis, play regulatory roles, and help maintain protein structure. Current tools for predicting metal-protein interactions are based on proteins crystallized with their metal ions present (holo forms). However, a majority of resolved structures are free of metal ions (apo forms).(More)
Analysis of the spatial arrangement of protein and water atoms that form polar interactions with ribose has been performed for a structurally non-redundant dataset of ATP, ADP and FAD-protein complexes. The 26 ligand-protein structures were separated into two groups corresponding to the most populated furanose ring conformations (N and S-domains). Four(More)
