MINAS - A Database of Metal Ions in Nucleic AcidS: MINAS
Owning Organization:
  • Department of Chemistry (UZH Chemistry), University of Zurich
Resource classification: Database
Tag (subject)  (1): DNA
Species (1): All (NCBI Taxonomy ID: 1)
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.
