Takeshi Kawabata “Detection of cave pockets in large molecules: Spaces into which internal probes can enter, but external probes from outside cannot”

【Significance】
Detection of cave pockets in large molecule

Finding a pocket and a cavity is important for the characterization of macromolecular 3D structures. Kawabata, T. and Go, N. (2007) proposed a simple definition of a pocket—a space into which a small probe can enter, but a large probe cannot. To find larger internal holes in large complexes, we employed Manak’s definition (2019)—a space into which an internal probe can enter, but an external probe cannot enter from outside. This pocket was named a “cave pocket”, was rigorously defined through mathematical morphology, and was implemented in the GHECOM program.
