- Comprehensive visualization of the complexity in interactions and triggered effects
- Suitable for investigation of avidity behavior
- Compatible with many real-time data formats
Cell biology is intricate and sometimes there are not enough models to describe its complexity. Interaction Map is a plugin tool to TraceDrawer that analyze real-time binding curves without any a priori guesses of the binding mode. It displays a heat map in which peaks correspond to individual 1:1 binding events, for example ligands that not only interacts with receptor monomers but also with dimers, activated receptor forms, or completely different cell-surface associated proteins. The kinetics, the affinity and prevalence of each binding mode is presented, together with its corresponding binding curve.
All in all, you get an image of function that helps you understand the binding mechanism and make better decisions in drug development and cell biology research. Its visual presentation of the data is perfect for communicating and convincing others.
