  • 14 June 1976
This report is one of a series of papers that introduce and use a new and highly simplified treatment of protein conformations. The first paper (Levitt & Warshel, 1975) outlined fhe approach andExpand

  • 26 May 1998
We present an approach for assessing the significance of sequence and structure comparisons by using nearly identical statistical formalisms for both sequence and structure. Doing so involves anExpand

  • Physics, Medicine
  • Journal of molecular biology
  • 20 July 1992
Segment match modeling uses a data base of highly refined known protein X-ray structures to build an unknown target structure from its amino acid sequence and the atomic coordinates of a few of itsExpand

Theoretical studies of enzymic reactions: dielectric, electrostatic and steric stabilization of the carbonium ion in the reaction of lysozyme.
Abstract A general method for detailed study of enzymic reactions is presented. The method considers the complete enzyme-substrate complex together with the surrounding solvent and evaluates all theExpand

Structural patterns in globular proteins
A simple diagrammatic representation has been used to show the arrangement of α helices and β sheets in 31 globular proteins, which are classified into four clearly separated classes. The observedExpand

  • 1 February 1998
We apply a simple method for aligning protein sequences on the basis of a 3D structure, on a large scale, to the proteins in the scop classification of fold families. Expand

Super-resolution biomolecular crystallography with low-resolution data
We introduce a method that adds specific information from known homologous structures but allows global and local deformations of these homology models. Expand

Decoys ‘R’ Us: A database of incorrect conformations to improve protein structure prediction
The development of an energy or scoring function for protein structure prediction is greatly enhanced by testing the func–tion on a set of computer–generated conformations (decoys) to determine whether it can readily distinguish native–like conforma–tions from nonnative ones. Expand
