Prediction of peptide binding sites on protein surfaces
Protein-peptide interactions are a vital part of many cellular signaling pathways (e.g., RTK signaling) and other cellular processes (e.g., endocytosis). A detailed view of such interactions enables a mechanistic description of how cell networks are regulated.
PepSite can predict binding of a given peptide onto a protein structure, enabling users to better understand the details of the interaction of interest. PepSite 2 is a complete rewrite of the original software and can generate results in seconds instead of minutes or even hours. (The original server is still available.)
