Abstract:We report here an all-atom energy based Monte Carlo docking procedure tested on a dataset of 226 proteinligand complexes. Average root mean square deviation (RMSD) from crystal conformation was observed to be ∼ 0.53 Å. The correlation coefficient (r2) for the predicted binding free energies calculated using the docked structures against experimental binding affinities was 0.72. The docking protocol is web-enabled as a free software at www.scfbioiitd. res.in/dock.

- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
