uncertain MINAS - A Database of Metal Ions in Nucleic AcidS


General Information
MINAS contains the exact geometric information on the first and second-shell coordinating ligands of every metal ion present in nucleic acid structures that are deposited in the PDB and NDB. Containing also the sequence information of the binding pocket-proximal nucleotides, this database allows for a detailed search of all combinations of potential ligands and of coordination environments of metal ions. MINAS is therefore a perfect new tool to classify metal ion binding pockets in nucleic acids by statistics and to draw general conclusions about the different coordination properties of these ions. This record has been marked as Uncertain because the homepage for this resource is no longer active, and we have not been able to get in touch with the owners of the resource. Please contact us if you have any information regarding MINAS.
