||| Entangle |||

Entangle is a JAVA program that reads a PDB file containing a nucleic-acid protein complex and gives a listing of interactions that occur at the interface between the nucleic-acid/protein complex. These interactions are then classified into hydrogen bonds, electrostatic, hydrophobic, and Van der Waals. Entangle also recognizes when a stacking interaction occurs between two aromatic residues. In addition to a listing, Entangle allows the user to probe the interface in three-dimensions. Please note that the following links will open pages in a new window.
