The dead-end elimination theorem and its use in protein side-chain positioning
We present a theorem, referred to as the 'dead-end elimination' theorem, which imposes a suitable condition to identify rotamers that cannot be members of the global minimum energy conformation. Expand

Conformational splitting: A more powerful criterion for dead‐end elimination
Dead‐end elimination (DEE) is a powerful theorem for selecting optimal protein side‐chain orientations from a large set of discrete conformations. The present work describes a new approach toExpand

All in one: a highly detailed rotamer library improves both accuracy and speed in the modelling of sidechains by dead-end elimination.
BACKGROUND About a decade ago, the concept of rotamer libraries was introduced to model sidechains given known mainchain coordinates. Since then, several groups have developed methods to handle theExpand

The fuzzy-end elimination theorem: correctly implementing the side chain placement algorithm based on the dead-end elimination theorem.
Recently it has been shown that the dead-end elimination theorem is a powerful tool in the search for the global minimum energy conformation (GMEC) of a large collection of protein side chains givenExpand

Enhanced dead-end elimination in the search for the global minimum energy conformation of a collection of protein side chains.
Although the conformational states of protein side chains can be described using a library of rotamers, the determination of the global minimum energy conformation (GMEC) of a large collection ofExpand

Diagnostic and treatment issues in postamputation pain after landmine injury.
Treating postamputation pain is challenging because it probably comprises nociceptive and neuropathic components, and the neuropathic part probably has both peripheral and central elements.Expand

Coexistence of hypocalciuric hypercalcaemia and interstitial lung disease in a family: a cross‐sectional study
Abstract. In a prospective investigation, a large kindred (twenty‐one subjects) with unexplained association of familial hypocalciuric hypercalcaemia and idiopathic interstitial lung disease wasExpand

The “Dead-End Elimination” Theorem: A New Approach to the Side-Chain Packing Problem
The prediction of a protein’s tertiary structure is still computationally infeasible, mainly because of the huge number of a priori possible global conformations. The prediction of side-chainExpand

Theoretical and algorithmical optimization of the dead-end elimination theorem.
We discuss the theoretical and practical aspects of three new methods called the "bottom line theorem", dead-end elimination assisted by local modeling and a combinatorial search combined with conventional dead- end elimination. Expand
