We present an approach that, by integrating structural data with Direct Coupling Analysis, is able to pinpoint most of the interaction hotspots (i.e. key residues for the biological activity) across very sparse protein families in a single run. An application to the Class A G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs), both in their active and inactive states, demonstrates the predictive power of our approach. The latter can be easily extended to any other kind of protein family, where it is expected to highlight most key sites involved in their functional activity.
