Predicting protein binding sites

In a study of 690 co-crystal structures, we found that protein-protein binding interfaces tend to have the following properties:
Characteristics of protein-protein interfaces

By looking for these (and other) characteristics, we can predict what part of a protein's surface is likely to be involved in binding interactions, without even knowing the binding partner:
