Besides the amino acids in sequential neighbourhood of glycosylation sites
(analysed by GlySeq), those in the spatial vicinity
of carbohydrate residues determine the characteristics of glycoproteins.
The latter ones are of special interest for the examination of
carbohydrate-binding proteins. Since carbohydrate moieties are not covalently
bound in these cases, sequence analysis comparable to that for glycosylation
sites is not possible there.
GlyVicinity performes statistical analyses on the types of amino acids around
carbohydrate chains and on the atoms forming the closest contacts between
protein and carbohydrate residues. Results are based on weekly updated datasets
derived from the Protein Data Bank (PDB).
