We present an e cient method for the comparison of protein structures, allowing swiveling motions. In all currently available methodologies developed and applied to the comparisons of protein structures, the molecules are considered to be rigid objects. The method described here extends and generalizes current approaches to searches for structural similarity between molecules by viewing proteins as objects consisting of rigid parts connected by rotary joints. During the matching, the rigid… CONTINUE READING
