IDRBind is a protein interface predictor for binding sites of intrinsically disordered protein regions (IDRs), ranging from peptide motifs (i.e., short linear motifs) to molecular recognition features (MoRFs). Differentiating IDRBind from other interface predictors is its emphasis on binding sites of MoRFs, which are long interaction mediating elements within IDRs.
FITOM is a computer program for the detection of binding sites in DNA or RNA sequences. It implements several methods described in the literature to compute an approximation of binding affinity for a particular site based on a collection of binding sequences provided by the user.
xFITOM is a fully featured GUI-enabled version of FITOM for Ms-Windows platforms that integrates additional functionality. The program provides an easy to use graphical user interface (GUI) to define all the relevant options for locating binding sites in genetic sequences.
BSpred is a neural network based algorithm for predicting binding site of proteins from amino acid sequences. The algorithm was extensively trained on the sequence-based features including protein sequence profile, secondary structure prediction, and hydrophobicity scales of amino acids.
DoGSiteScorer is an automated pocket detection and analysis tool. Size, shape and physico-chemical features of automatically predicted pockets are annotated and incorporated into a support vector machine for druggability estimations.
LIBRA is based on a graph theory approach to find the largest subset of similar residues between an input protein and a collection of known functional sites.
LIBRA+ is an upgraded version of LIBRA, a tool that, given a protein’s structural model, predicts the presence and identity of active sites and/or ligand binding sites. The algorithm implemented by LIBRA+ is based on a graph theory approach to find the largest subset of similar residues between an input protein and a collection of known functional sites. For this purpose, the algorithm makes use of two predefined databases for active sites and ligand binding sites, respectively derived from the Catalytic Site Atlas and the Protein Data Bank.
LIBRA Web Application is an online portal where users can exploit LIBRA+’s capabilities in recognizing the presence and identity of active sites and/or ligand binding sites given a protein’s structural model. With a free registration, users are given a personal space where they can launch and schedule multiple recognitions, check out the resulting three-dimensional alignments and browse ligand clusters. Results produced in LIBRAWA are backward-compatible with LIBRA+ and can thus be exported in LIBRA+’s format to be accessed offline from the desktop application.
motifStack is a package for the visualization of the alignment of motifs as a phylogenetic tree in different layout types. This tool facilitates the analysis of binding site diversity and conservation within families of TFs and the evolution of TFs among different species. motifStack can align DNA motifs; generate motif signatures for closely related motifs; and plot aligned motifs as a stack, a linear or a radial tree, or a word cloud of sequence logos. Different parameter settings can be used to generate diverse types of plots with color schema highlighting important data features.
