Predicting the structure of protein complexes: a step in the right direction

Chem Biol. 1996 Mar;3(3):151-6. doi: 10.1016/s1074-5521(96)90256-2.


In a blind test of protein-docking algorithms, six groups used different methods to predict the structure of a protein complex. All six predicted structures were close enough to the experimental complex to be useful; nevertheless, several important details of the experimental complex were missed or only partially predicted.
