Note that predictions are made on the quaternary structures predicted by PQS for each PDB file.
- Ligand Binding Site Predictions
ConCavity's predictions of the ligand binding pockets and residues for structures from the Protein Quaternary Structure database. Visualizations and score files are available for each structure. Due to oddities in the PQS/PDB, predictions are not available for a small number of structures. Please let us know if you need predictions for a missing structure.
- Sequence Conservation Files
Pre-computed sequence conservation files are available for each structure in the PQS structure database. The conservation scores were computed using the Jensen-Shannon divergence method on the HSSP alignments.
