Protein structure determination and predictive modeling have long been guided by the paradigm that the peptide backbone has a single, context-independent ideal geometry. Both quantum-mechanics calculations and empirical analyses have shown this is an incorrect simplification in that backbone covalent geometry actually varies systematically as a function of the phi and Psi backbone dihedral angles. Here, we use a nonredundant set of ultrahigh-resolution protein structures to define these… CONTINUE READING
