Finding structural neighbors by FATCAT|
This server is to provide a searching interface for Flexible Structural Neighborhood (FSN), a database
of structural neighbors of proteins as seen by FATCAT - a flexible protein structure alignment
program. The server accepts either a protein (PDB ID) or a domain (SCOP ID) as a query.
For the former case, the server first displays the information of chains and domains of a given protein.
Afterwards, users can retrieve similar structures for a domain (if domain information is available, i.e.,
the protein is collected by SCOP), or for a chain otherwise.
The protein structure database we collected for similar structure search
includes a representative set at 90% sequence identity of SCOP domains,
and of up-to-date PDB entries that are not included in the latest release of SCOP.
Please click here for more information about FSN.
Please try the server using the default PDB/SCOP ID or your own ones.
A scop code is a classifier assigned by
SCOP for a group of structurally related proteins.
For example, "a.1" is the scop code for Globin-like fold.|
To find the hierartical classification of all proteins assigned by SCOP, please go to
