KLIFS, intially developed at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, is a database that dissects experimental structures of catalytic kinase domains and the way kinase inhibitors interact with them. The KLIFS structural alignment enables the comparison of all structures and ligands to each other. Moreover, the KLIFS residue numbering scheme capturing the catalytic cleft of 85 residues allows for the comparison of the interaction patterns of kinase-inhibitors to each other to, for example, identify crucial interactions determining kinase-inhibitor selectivity.
