MutaProt: a web interface for structural analysis of point mutations.

Author information

Department of Plant Sciences, Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot 76100, Israel.


A web-based tool, termed 'MutaProt', is described which analyses pairs of PDB files whose members differ in one, or two, amino acids. MutaProt examines the micro environment surrounding the exchanged residue(s) and can be searched by specifying a PDB ID, keywords, or any pair of amino acids. Detailed information about accessibility of the exchanged residue(s) and its atomic contacts are provided based on CSU software (Sobolev et al., Bioinformatics, 15, 327-332, 1999). An interactive 3D presentation of the superimposed regions around the mutation(s) is included. MutaProt is updated weekly.
