I've noticed that Ibercivis is now offering some workunits that look like they might be related to Rosetta@home work.

9/13/2009 11:26:04 AM ibercivis Starting 1bm7_gridmaps.7z__ZINC00561766_1252788903_amldb2_1
9/13/2009 11:26:07 AM ibercivis Starting task 1bm7_gridmaps.7z__ZINC00561766_1252788903_amldb2_1 using amldb2 version 453

This one appears to be related to zinc, and the application name used suggests it is also related to amyloids:

amiloide-pruebas 4.53

I can't read Spanish or Portuguese well enough to tell if they say whether there's any relationship, but it looks like there's enough chance of one that I thought I'd ask you instead.

Hi
I also week in two languages above and I also run ibercivis.
According to starting code 1bm7 you can read some info here: http://www.ebi.ac.uk/thornton-srv/databases/cgi-bin/pdbsum/GetPage.pl
It seems to be human prot. could be in connection with the disease called amyloidosis (accumulation of undegradable proteins in various tissues). I couldn't find any metal in the protein structure, but I'm not an expert. Probably, they trying out some metal comp. enzyme or ligand on this stuff?

With regards

As with other users, I can't read Spanish or Portuguese, so I disengaged from Ibercivis a while back. However, if they are running similar WU's, perhaps we could dig up someone who understands one of those languages and get them on board with Rosetta... would avoid duplicate efforts...
The lovely lady you see isn't I, but Hayley Westenra, a classical crossover singer from Christchurch, NZ. There is no known voice as hers. Check her out- she's seraphic.

In English, but if it even mentions the Ibercivis BOINC project, that's far from obvious.

I found a few sites that mention ZINC (in all capital letters) as the name of a database of compounds that are available enough to be used as candidates for drugs that will dock to specific proteins.

For the public:


ZINC database - Wikipedia

http://www.mcknight.org/neuroscience/


ZINC database - DISI

http://wiki.compbio.ucsf.edu/wiki/index.php/ZINC_Database


For researchers:


ZINC - A free database for virtual screening - version 8

http://zinc.docking.org/


ZINC – A Free Database of Commercially Available Compounds for Virtual Screening

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1360656/


Therefore, I now guess that they're more likely to be using the ZINC database than trying anything with zinc-binding proteins.
