Intrinsically Disordered Proteins (IDPs) are a class of proteins in which at least some region of the protein does not possess any stable structure in solution in the physiological condition but may adopt an ordered structure upon binding to a globular receptor. These IDP-receptor complexes are thus subject to protein complex modeling in which computational techniques are applied to accurately reproduce the IDP ligand-receptor interactions. This often exists in the form of protein docking, in which the 3D structures of both the subunits are known, but the position of the ligand relative to the receptor is not. Read More
