The service is based on several well-established concepts reported previously: bond valence (1), VECSUM (2), metal binding sites (3), coordination geometries (4), assignment of sodium versus water (5), metal binding environment (6) in protein structures. We thankfully acknowledge their important contributions. The list presented here may not be complete and suggestion for any additional references are appreicated.
