'mCPC' is widely being accepted as 'Minimum Cost-Per-Click', however the other two parameters 'Pscore' and 'Thresh' have been debatable topics for some time now. There has been an explanation provided for Pscore by the European Bio-informatics Institute, which comes really close to explain Pscore. “P-score represents minus logarithm of the P-value. P-value measures the probability of achieving the same or better quality of match at a chance, i.e. at random picking the structures from the database. “Quality of match” is a complex characteristics, which accounts for RMSD, number of aligned residues Nalgn, number of gaps Ngaps, number of matched Secondary Structure Elements and the SSE match score. The higher P-score (the lower P-value), the more surprising, or statistically significant, is the match.”

The last remaining parameter 'Thresh' appears more like a 'threshold', still it is just a speculation. However, this is a variably interesting development, that is worth being noted and followed.
