Kinases are dynamic proteins that can adopt several distinct conformational states.

Thats why we built KinaMetrix.

A webserver to investigate kinase conformations and inhibitor space.

How to contact us:

If you have any issues with the webserver in general, running Kinformation, accesing the fragment library, find any bugs, or have an idea for a helpful feature, please contact:
  • rayees(dot)rahman@icahn(dot)mssm(dot)edu
    Rayees is the principal server developer and maintainer. He also trained Kinformation and built the fragment libaries and network.
    For any questions about the kinase homology models, the geometric descriptors used to train Kinformation or about DFGModel, please contact:
    • peter(dot)ung@mssm(dot)edu
      Dr. Ung develped the algorithm to derive the geometric descriptors describing the DFG and αC-Helix motifs in kinases.
      He also created DFGModel and generated all the homology models available on this webserver.

      For general inquires please contact:
      • avner(dot)schlessinger@mssm(dot)edu
        Dr. Schlessinger is the principal investigator of this project.
