Member Site Forums Rosetta 3 Rosetta 3 – General ligand dock residue selection Reply To: ligand dock residue selection


    to the best of my knowledge, the ligand dock protocol doesn’t actually respect resfiles. instead, every time a packing step happens in the protocol, the residues surrounding the current ligand position will be selected for repacking (and backbone/chi minimization ). the distance cutoff used to determine whether a residue is part of the interface is the neighbor radius of the residue in question (as specified in the .params files ) plus 6 angstroms.

    > Is it posible to select specific residues (both sidechains and backbone) which will be modified during the procedure, leaving the rest of the protein structure unchanged? I’m thinking on something like the res file for the other applications.
