I have thought about it but I always postpone it since you have to fax the confidential agreement. I don't even know if we have a fax machine at work!

Dear Sam,
did you try the ligplot program?
homepage -
SH2 domain complexed with a peptide containing phosphotyrosine (1sha) -
The program generates a text file, which includes the interaction, as well.
Hope this helps
