Method for GalaxyPepDock

GalaxyPepDock predicts 3D protein-peptide complex structures from input protein structure and peptide sequence by combining information on similar interactions found in the structure database and energy-based optimization.

Additional information



Sequences & alignments: Protein alignment (result of structure alignment) and peptide alignment (result of sequence alignment with more weights on interacting residues in the template)
Protein structure similarity: Similarity of the input protein structure to the selected template structure
Interaction similarity score: Similarity of the amino acids of the target complex aligned to the contacting residues in the template structure to the template amino acids
Estimated accuracy: The estimated fraction of correctly predicted binding site residues.
The prediction accuracy is estimated from a linear model of the relationship between the fraction of correctly predicted binding site residues and the template-target similarity (measured by the protein TM-score and S_inter) obtained by a linear regression of the PeptiDB test set results.
Estimated accuracy = max[0, min(1, -0.35576 + 0.98280*TM-score + 0.00223*S_inter)]
If estimated accuracy is closed to zero, it is suggested to use other ab initio protein-peptide docking tools.
Predicted binding site residues in protein: The residues that have at least one heavy atom at a distance of less than 5 angstroms from any peptide heavy atoms in the generated model
