SOCKET 3.03 / iSocket 0.3.1
The SOCKET program finds the Knobs-into-Holes mode of packing between alpha-helices which is characteristic of coiled coils. It unambiguously defines the beginning and end of coiled-coil motifs in protein structures and assigns a heptad register to the sequence, highlighting the core-residues with a RasMol script if required.
iSocket is a set of computational tools written in Python as an add-on to the ISAMBARD software suite.
