STAMP has been invovled in numerous published studies.
Two novel similarities uncovered by STAMP have appeared
in the literature: the similarity between the SH2 domain
and domain II of E. coli biotin operon protein [Russell & Barton, 1993a]; and the
similarity between HIV matrix protein p17 and Interferon
gamma [Matthews et al., 1994].
STAMP has also aided several other investigations into protein structure. STAMP alignments have been used to determine the best accuracy of secondary structure prediction from multiple sequence alignment [Russell & Barton, 1993b]. It has been used to investigate the conservation of various protein structural features across structural similar (but apparently non-homologous) proteins [Russell & Barton, 1994] and has been used for several investigations into protein domain structure (Russell, 1994; Sternberg et al. , 1995; Siddiqui & Barton, in preparation).
STAMP has also proved extremely useful when assessing the results of protein structure prediction by fold recognition (Russell et al. , 1995; Russell et al. submitted).
We hope you find it as useful as we have.
