Metalation calculators

Conditional calculators for E. coli JM109 (DE3) grown aerobically, exposed to hydrogen peroxide and grown anaerobically were first reported in Foster et al. (2022) BioRxiv. This manuscript also contains tutorial information on the uses and constraints of metalation calculators. A spreadsheet version of the original idealised Salmonella calculator was first released in Young et al. (2021) Nature Communications 12, 1195. Iterative refinements, for example to estimates of the intracellular metal availabilities, will be catalogued here.

To predict the metalation state of a protein or other biomolecule, fill in values in the table for as many determined metal affinities (and availabilities if known) as possible. Where affinities are unknown, use the toggle buttons to exclude that metal.
