Secondary Structure Matching (SSM) is an interactive service for comparing protein structures in 3D. SSM compares to other protein matching services, see results here. It is used as a structure search engine in PISA service (Protein Interfaces, Surfaces and Assemblies). It queries may be launched from any web site, see instructions here and it is based on the CCP4 Coordinate Library, found here.
The service provides for:
-pairwise comparison and 3D alignment of protein structures
-multiple comparison and 3D alignment of protein structures
-examination of a protein structure for similarity with the whole PDB or SCOP archives
-best Ca-alignment of compared structures
-download and visualization of best-superposed structures using Rasmol (Unix/Linux platforms), Rastop (MS Windows machines) and Jmol (platform-independent server-side java viewer)
-linking the results to other services - PDBe Motif, OCA, SCOP, GeneCensus, FSSP, 3Dee, CATH, PDBSum, SWISS-PROT and ProtoMap.
Sponsors: The project is funded by the Collaborative Computational Project Number 4 in Protein Crystallography of the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council
