Protein KinaseStructural DataHuman ProteinCurated ReferenceEfficient Mining

Here, we introduce an aligned database of protein kinase structures that can be efficiently explored by sequence, structure, or by ATP pocket ligand (type or similarity). We also discuss an automated protocol for kinase identification, classification and superposition that relies on a curated reference set of structures and sequences covering the wide variety of human protein kinases.
