a JAVA program that reads PDB files containing a nucleic-acid protein complex and gives a listing of interactions that occur at the interface between the nucleic-acid/protein complex. These interactions are then classified into hydrogen bonds, electrostatic, hydrophobic, and Van der Waals. Entangle also recognizes when a stacking interaction occurs between two aromatic residues. In addition to a listing, Entangle allows the user to probe the interface in three-dimensions.
Not all PDBs work with this program.
