Abstract

This paper reports a computational study of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae alphagalactosidase structural properties. We have considered three structural files containing complexes of alpha-galactosidases with distinct ligands, two monomers and a homotetramer, and computed their surface properties: surface areas, surface cavities areas and volumes, surface roughness. The areas and volumes of the biggest surface cavities are quite similar for all the investigated structures and in good agreement with geometrical characteristics of ligands. The surface roughness is higher for the tetramer structure in comparison to those of monomers reflecting the influence of the interactions between monomeric units on the surface complexity.
