Normal modes for predicting protein motions: a comprehensive database assessment and associated Web tool.


We carry out an extensive statistical study of the applicability of normal modes to the prediction of mobile regions in proteins. In particular, we assess the degree to which the observed motions found in a comprehensive data set of 377 nonredundant motions can be modeled by a single normal-mode vibration. We describe each motion in our data set by vectors… (More)
