Ligands - What binds here?

This tool enables you to search for ligands in the PDB that interact with a given set of residues (e.g. "HIS ASP SER") and the results are plotted on an interactive graph. This graph links to PDB entries containing the interactions, as well as advanced analysis options within PDBeMotif.

Click on an image to expand it. Click on the residue name to add it to the "Environment" field. Alternatively, you can also put the three-letter residue codes in the "Environment" field manually, separated by spaces. You must specify at least two residues. The order of the residues does not matter. Specifying a residue more than once means the ligand's environment must contain that number of interacting instances of the residue.
