About MIMP

Phosphorylation is a post-translational modification involved in many cellular processes. Aberrant phosphorylation can alter signaling pathways and gene expression. Thus, phosphorylation-related single nucleotide variants (pSNVs) can potentially lead to rewiring of phosphorylation networks.

Mutations IMpact on Phosphorylation (MIMP) is a web service that predicts if a mutation within a phosphorylation site will alter phosphorylation. MIMP works by constructing specificity models for kinases, which are then used to score phosphosites containing a mutation before and after the mutation to predict the impact it may have on phosphorylation.
