FATCAT comparison of close homologs

FATCAT Home Pairwise Alignment Database Searching Structural Neighbors References Help

When to use: To study the conformational changes (mainly) caused by the changes of functional states, i.e., substrate binding, interacting, et al., instead of divergence

A simple how: Homologs are first collected by blast the sequence of the query against the whole PDB sequences (with E-value<=1e-4; sequence identity>=60%); then the structures of the homologs are compared to the query by FATCAT

Get your structure (please use only one method from the 3 methods below):
Enter a name for your structure:   (optional)
  • Upload file (in PDB format):    
  • or   Provide PDB code:      Chain:  
  • or   Provide SCOP domain code:  
(Note 1: You can either upload local PDB files or simply provide PDB codes (eg. 1abo) or SCOP domain code (eg. d1mt0a_))
(Note 2: FATCAT server will automatically download the PDB files from RCSB when PDB codes are provided or from SCOP if domain codes are provided)
(Note 3: If your PDB has more than one chain AND you do not want to use the 1st chain, please define the Chain; otherwise, the 1st chain will be used)
(Note 4: Type in "zero" instead of "0" for chain 0; the server will not recognize 0)
