Most of the proteins in a cell assemble into complexes to carry out their function. In this work, we have created a new database (named ComSin) of protein structures in bound (complex) and unbound (single) states to provide a researcher with exhaustive information on structures of the same or homologous proteins in bound and unbound states. From the complete Protein Data Bank (PDB), we selected 24 910 pairs of protein structures in bound and unbound states, and identified regions of intrinsic…

Comparison of tertiary structures of proteins in protein-protein complexes with unbound forms suggests prevalence of allostery in signalling proteins
The enrichment of allosteric sites in signalling proteins, whose mutations commonly lead to diseases such as cancer, provides support for the usage of allostery modulators in combating these diseases.
IDEAL in 2014 illustrates interaction networks composed of intrinsically disordered proteins and their binding partners
The new IDEAL incorporates the interactions of IDPs and their binding partners more explicitly, and illustrates the protein–protein interaction (PPI) networks and the structures of protein complexes, together with other advances.
The expanding view of protein-protein interactions: complexes involving intrinsically disordered proteins.
This survey examines the basic properties of the complexes of disordered and ordered proteins from three different directions and proposes the generalization of the 'energy landscape model' for the description of complex formation that can help to put the various types of protein associations on a common ground.
mpMoRFsDB: a database of molecular recognition features in membrane proteins
All membrane proteins that contain molecular recognition features (MoRFs) were collected, organized and stored in a publicly available mySQL database with a user-friendly web interface and provides valuable information related to disorder-based protein-protein interactions in membrane proteins.
Protein flexibility in the light of structural alphabets
In this review, innovative approaches that investigate protein flexibility based on SAs description are reviewed, exemplify the interest of SAs for studying flexibility with different cases of proteins implicated in pathologies and diseases.
Intrinsic disorder and protein multibinding in domain, terminal, and linker regions.
The hypothesis that protein domains with many interacting partners should have a pleiotropic effect on functional pathways and consequently might be more constrained in evolution is supported.
Disordered Patterns in Clustered Protein Data Bank and in Eukaryotic and Bacterial Proteomes
This work has constructed the clustered Protein Data Bank and obtained clusters of chains of different identity inside each cluster, and analyzed the occurrence of the selected patterns in 97 eukaryotic and in 26 bacterial proteomes.

The article presents the databases in groups such as those aimed to facilitate browsing through PDB entries, their molecules and their general information, those built to link protein structure with sequence and dynamics, those specific for transmembrane proteins, nucleic acids, interactions of biomacromolecules with each other and with small molecules or metal ions.
Structural Interface Parameters Are Discriminatory in Recognising Near-Native Poses of Protein-Protein Interactions
A rigorous scoring scheme called DockScore is proposed which can be used to rank the docked poses and identify the best docked pose out of many as proposed by docking algorithm employed and also demonstrated that DOCKSCORE can distinguish correct pose for all 10 recent CAPRI targets.
AH-DB: collecting protein structure pairs before and after binding
This work presents the Apo–Holo DataBase (AH-DB), which provides corresponding pairs of protein structures before and after binding, based on a refined alignment scheme to overcome the challenge that many structures in the PDB database are only protein fragments and not complete proteins.


DisProt: the Database of Disordered Proteins
The Database of Protein Disorder (DisProt) links structure and function information for intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) by collecting and organizing knowledge regarding the experimental characterization and the functional associations of IDPs.
Intrinsic Disorder in Protein Interactions: Insights From a Comprehensive Structural Analysis
It is argued that the mechanisms of regulation of binding specificity through disordered regions in complexes can be as common as for unbound monomeric proteins.
Inferred Biomolecular Interaction Server—a web server to analyze and predict protein interacting partners and binding sites
The NCBI Inferred Biomolecular Interaction Server organizes, analyzes and predicts interaction partners and locations of binding sites in proteins, and facilitates the mapping of a comprehensive biomolecular interaction network for a given protein query.
Finding biologically relevant protein domain interactions: Conserved binding mode analysis
This study gives lower and upper bounds on the number of different types of interacting domain pairs in the structure database on the order of 1000–2000 and uses CBMs to create domain interaction networks, which highlight functionally significant connections by avoiding many infrequent links between highly connected nodes.

Predicting intrinsic disorder in proteins: an overview
In this review of algorithms for intrinsic disorder prediction, the basic concepts of various prediction methods for IDPs are summarized, the strengths and shortcomings of many of the methods are analyzed, and the difficulties and directions of future development of IDP prediction techniques are discussed.

The Conserved Domain Database (CDD) is a compilation of multiple sequence alignments representing protein domains conserved in molecular evolution. It has been populated with alignment data from the
Sequence complexity of disordered protein
The Swiss Protein database of sequences exhibits significantly higher amounts of both low‐complexity and predicted‐to‐be‐disordered segments as compared to a non‐redundant set of sequences from the Protein Data Bank, providing additional data that nature is richer in disordered and low-complexity segments compared to the commonness of these features in the set of structurally characterized proteins.
Functional anthology of intrinsic disorder. 1. Biological processes and functions of proteins with long disordered regions.
This work opens a series of three papers, which enriches the current view of protein structure-function relationships, especially with regards to functionalities of intrinsically disordered proteins, and provides researchers with a novel tool that could be used to improve the understanding of the relationships between protein structure and function.
Intrinsically unstructured proteins: re-assessing the protein structure-function paradigm.
Many proteins that lack intrinsic globular structure under physiological conditions have now been recognized, and it appears likely that their rapid turnover, aided by their unstructured nature in the unbound state, provides a level of control that allows rapid and accurate responses of the cell to changing environmental conditions.
