NCl: A server to identify non-canonical interactions in protein structures

, : NCl: A server to identify non-canonical interactions in protein structures. Nucleic Acids Research 31(13): 3345-3348, July 1

NCl is a server for the identification of non-canonical interactions in protein structures. These interactions, which include N-Hcntdotcntdotcntdotpi, Calpha-Hcntdotcntdotcntdotpi, CalphaHcntdotcntdotcntdotO=C and variants of them, were first observed in small molecules and subsequently in high-resolution protein structures. Such interactions have been subjected to extensive structural analysis to elucidate the different geometric criteria required to identify them. These interactions have also recently been shown to be important for the stability of protein structures. In this work, I describe a server called NCl, which allows the user to either upload protein/peptide coordinates in Protein Data Bank (PDB) format or enter a Structural Classification of Proteins database (SCOP)/PDB identifier for which NCl identifies the different non-canonical interactions, based purely on geometric criteria. Results are presented as an HTML table, as a parseable text file and as a color-coded interaction matrix. In addition, the user can view the RasMol image highlighting the interactions in the protein structure and download the RasMol script. The NCl server is available at:
