3did Update: domain-domain and peptide-mediated interactions of known 3D structure

Nucleic Acids Res. 2009 Jan;37(Database issue):D300-4. doi: 10.1093/nar/gkn690. Epub 2008 Oct 25.


The database of 3D interacting domains (3did) is a collection of protein interactions for which high-resolution 3D structures are known. 3did exploits structural information to provide the crucial molecular details necessary for understanding how protein interactions occur. Besides interactions between globular domains, the new release of 3did also contains a hand-curated set of transient peptide-mediated interactions. The interactions are grouped in Interaction Types, based on the mode of binding, and the different binding interfaces used in each type are also identified and catalogued. A web-based tool to query 3did is available at http://3did.irbbarcelona.org.
