For a successful analysis of the relation between amino acid sequence and protein structure, an unambiguous and physically meaningful definition of secondary structure is essential. We have developed a set of simple and physically motivated criteria for secondary structure, programmed as a pattern‐recognition process of hydrogen‐bonded and geometrical features extracted from x‐ray coordinates. Cooperative secondary structure is recognized as repeats of the elementary hydrogen‐bonding patterns… Expand
A New Type of φ, ψ Representation of the Protein Tertiary Structure and the Analysis of the Amino Acid Preferences for Specific Locations at Type-II β-Turn by Using 8000 Possible Kinds of Amino Acid Residues
φ, ψ Representations of three-dimensional structures of 125 globular proteins were depicted for analyzing conformational details in their secondary and tertiary structures. They can be drawn in theExpand
Hydrogen‐bonded turns in proteins: The case for a recount
TLDR
A substantial population of previously unidentified, stringently defined, hydrogen‐bonded β‐turns is revealed in the coil library, a Web‐accessible database utility comprised of all residues not in repetitive secondary structure, neither α‐helix nor β‐sheet. Expand
Theoretical Aspects of Secondary Structure
Defined as the local spatial arrangement of the backbone atoms of a polypeptide chain, the secondary structure of a protein is often categorized as alpha (a)-helices, beta (b)-sheets, and others.Expand
Cooperative effects in hydrogen‐bonding of protein secondary structure elements: A systematic analysis of crystal data using Secbase
TLDR
This observation suggests that cooperative effects mutually polarizing spatially well‐aligned hydrogen bonds are present either in α helices and parallel β sheets whereas such influences seem to be lacking in 310 helics and antiparallel β sheets. Expand
Secondary structure assignment that accurately reflects physical and evolutionary characteristics
TLDR
A more accurate method for assigning secondary structure based on main chain geometry is developed, which also allows a more comprehensive assignment of secondary structure. Expand
Description and recognition of regular and distorted secondary structures in proteins using the automated protein structure analysis method
TLDR
A twenty‐by‐twenty comparison of all α domains showed that the curvature‐torsion patterns generated by APSA provide an accurate and meaningful similarity measurement for secondary, super secondary, and tertiary protein structure. Expand
BCL::Score—Knowledge Based Energy Potentials for Ranking Protein Models Represented by Idealized Secondary Structure Elements
TLDR
A tailored knowledge-based energy function is introduced that evaluates arrangement of secondary structure elements only and significantly enriches for native-like models in three different databases of 10,000–12,000 protein models in 80–94% of the cases. Expand
Protein fold recognition from secondary structure assignments

  • Computer Science
  • Proceedings of the Twenty-Eighth Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences
  • 1995
TLDR
A method for finding protein folds consistent with secondary structure assignments and imposed experimental restraints is described, which finds a set of plausible topologies for a protein of unknown structure, which can be inspected visually or tested by experiment. Expand
Generation of a substructure library for the description and classification of protein secondary structure. I. Overview of the methods and results
TLDR
An algorithm that operates independently of a predefined structure template is developed that contains features that reproduce the major secondary structure classes as well as defining conformations previously described only as random or undefined conformations. Expand
Tertiary structural constraints on protein evolutionary diversity: templates, key residues and structure prediction
TLDR
A comparative analysis of families of homologous globular proteins to characterize and quantify the structural constraints and to identify ‘key’ residues if one or more structures are known. Expand
