We have produced a computer code, TomoDock, to create a tomographic docking application, and used it to discover how deep binding pockets present “security gates” that filter out some molecules while allowing others to reach their binding site. Thus, selectivity is more than docking. We use the plant hormone auxin and its receptor as a case study, and identify amino acids that are involved as molecular filters.
