A method for the quantitative evaluation of structural similarity between protein pairs is developed that makes use of a Delaunay-based topological mapping. The result of the mapping is a three-dimensional array which is representative of the global structural topology and whose elements can be used to construe an integral scoring scheme. This scoring scheme was tested for its dependence on the protein length difference in a pairwise comparison, its ability to provide a reasonable means for… CONTINUE READING
