Joint-based description of protein structure: its application to the geometric characterization of membrane proteins


A macroscopic description of a protein structure allows an understanding of the protein conformations in a more simplistic manner. Here, a new macroscopic approach that utilizes the joints of the protein secondary structures as a basic descriptor for the protein structure is proposed and applied to study the arrangement of secondary structures in helical… (More)
