We analyze packing imperfections in globular proteins as reflected in deviations of torsion angles from the equilibrium values for the isolated side chains. The distribution of conformations of methionine and lysine residues in a database of high-resolution structures is compared with energies of model compounds calculated with high-level quantum-mechanics.(More)
In this paper, the variation of the values of dihedral angles in proteins is divided into two categories by analyzing distributions in a database of structures determined at a resolution of 1.8 A or better [Lovell et al. (2003), Proteins Struct. Funct. Genet. 50, 437-450]. The first analysis uses the torsion angle for the Calpha-Cbeta bond (chi1) of all(More)
