A program is described which generates hydrogen bonding diagrams of protein structures and optionally helical wheels and helical nets. The program can also be used simply to calculate the connectivities of β‐strands and to automatically extract simple structural motifs such as hairpins or Greek keys. The program greatly reduces the effort required to produce these diagrams and offers considerable flexibility in the information which can be represented. The usefulness of the program is… Expand
Analysis of protein sheet topologies by graph theoretical methods
TLDR
Methods of applied graph theory and computer program for the representation and retrieval of bibliographic data and β sheet structures was implemented and the resemblance of proteins at that topological level is discussed, and four notations and graphic representations of sheets which describe the sequential and topological neighborhoods of the strands were derived.

PROMOTIF—A program to identify and analyze structural motifs in proteins
TLDR
A suite of programs, PROMOTIF, that analyzes a protein coordinate file and provides details about the structural motifs in the protein, and can also be used to compare motifS in a group of related structures, such as an ensemble of NMR structures. Expand
Automatic generation of protein structure cartoons with Pro-origami
TLDR
Pro-origami applies a breakthrough in diagram layout to protein topology cartoons, providing clear, accurate, interactive and editable diagrams, which are also an interface to a structural search method. Expand
Identification of .beta.-sheet motifs, of .psi.-loops, and of patterns of amino acid residues in three-dimensional protein structures using a subgraph-isomorphism algorithm
TLDR
The use of Ullmann's subgraph isomorphism algorithm with these representations permits the identification of all occurrences of all possible 8-sheet motifs in a 114-protein subset of the Protein Data Bank. Expand
Protein Supersecondary Structures
The Rossmann fold is one of the most commonly observed structural domains in proteins. The fold is composed of consecutive alternating β-strands and α-helices that form a layer of β-sheet with oneExpand
Comparative visualization of protein secondary structures
TLDR
This work proposes a new visualization technique that bridges the gap between traditionally used 1D and 3D representations of proteins and focuses on the protein flexibility when by comparing a set of time steps the authors' representation helps to reveal the most dynamically changing parts of the protein chain.

TopDraw: a sketchpad for protein structure topology cartoons
  • C. Bond
  • Computer Science, Medicine
  • Bioinform.
  • 2003
TLDR
TopDraw is a simple, freely available TCL/Tk based drawing program designed specifically for the production of publication quality topology cartoons in a style commonly presented by structural biologists. Expand
Sheep: a Tool for Description of β-Sheets in protein 3D Structures
TLDR
An algorithm is developed that can significantly modify β-sheets detected by commonly used DSSP and Stride algorithms and represent the result as a "β-sheet map," a table describing certain β-sheet features. Expand
Automated Family-Wide Annotation of Secondary Structure Elements.
TLDR
This chapter introduces the concept of SSE annotation and describes the workflow for obtaining SSE annotations for the members of a selected protein family using program SecStrAnnotator. Expand
Connectivity independent protein-structure alignment: a hierarchical approach
TLDR
GANGSTA is able to detect structural similarity of protein folds that are assigned to different superfamilies but nevertheless possess similar structures and perform related functions, even if these proteins differ in SSE connectivity. Expand

The algorithm is shown to be at least as good as, and usually superior to, the reported prediction methods assessed in the same way and the implication in protein folding is discussed. Expand
β-Sheet topology and the relatedness of proteins
TLDR
The topological connectivities of β-pleated sheets in the known protein structures are systematically surveyed for regularly occurring features and suggest that striking topological similarities between different proteins can readily happen by chance. Expand

The handedness of the connection between two parallel β-strands is analyzed. It is found that, irrespective of the secondary structure in the connection, the unit is nearly always right-handed. ThisExpand

TLDR
The crystal structure of bovine carboxypeptidase A (Cox) has been refined at 1.54 A resolution using the restrained least-squares algorithm of Hendrickson & Konnert (1981) and four examples of a reverse turn like structure requiring an aspartic acid or asparagine residue are observed in this structure.

A central eight-stranded beta-pleated sheet is the main feature of the polypeptide backbone folding in dihydrofolate reductase, and Methotrexate is bound in a 15-angstrom-deep cavity with the pteridine ring buried in a primarily hydrophobic pocket. Expand
