Cellular networks are subject to extensive regulation, which modifies the availability and efficiency of connections between components in response to external conditions. Thus far, studies of large-scale networks have focused on their connectivity, but have not considered how the modulation of this connectivity might also determine network properties. To(More)
Database-scale analysis was performed to determine whether structural models, based on remote homologues, are effective in predicting 3D transition metal binding sites in proteins directly from translated gene sequences. The extent by which side chain modeling alone reduces sensitivity and selectivity is shown to be <10%. Surprisingly, selectivity was not(More)
Protein structure serves as a key determinant for revealing the molecular basis of human disease. Metal ions are among the most frequently bound heterogroups in proteins affecting structure and function. We analyzed the relationship between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with human disease and metal binding sites in proteins on a database(More)
Accurate prediction of protein function in humans is important for understanding biological processes at the molecular level in biomedicine and drug design. Over a third of proteins are commonly held to bind metal, and ∼10% of human proteins, to bind zinc. Therefore, an initial step in protein function prediction frequently involves predicting metal ion(More)
