Heuristic pKa calculations with ligands

Project description

PROPKA predicts the pKa values of ionizable groups in proteins (version 3.0) and protein-ligand complexes (version 3.1 and later) based on the 3D structure.

For proteins without ligands both version should produce the same result.

The method is described in the following papers, which you should cite in publications:

  • Sondergaard, Chresten R., Mats HM Olsson, Michal Rostkowski, and Jan H. Jensen. “Improved Treatment of Ligands and Coupling Effects in Empirical Calculation and Rationalization of pKa Values.” Journal of Chemical Theory and Computation 7, no. 7 (2011): 2284-2295.
