Geometrical validation around the Cα is described, with a new Cβ measure and updated Ramachandran plot. Deviation of the observed Cβ atom from ideal position provides a single measure encapsulating the major structure‐validation information contained in bond angle distortions. Cβ deviation is sensitive to incompatibilities between sidechain and backbone caused by misfit conformations or inappropriate refinement restraints. A new ϕ,ψ plot using density‐dependent smoothing for 81,234 non‐Gly, non… Expand
Stereochemical Assessment of (φ,ψ) Outliers in Protein Structures Using Bond Geometry-Specific Ramachandran Steric-Maps.
TLDR
It is proposed that a (φ,ψ) outlier is unacceptable if it is located within the steric-clash region of a bond geometry-specific steric -map for a residue position. Expand
Molprobity's ultimate rotamer‐library distributions for model validation
TLDR
The updated MolProbity rotamer‐library distributions derived from an order‐of‐magnitude larger and more stringently quality‐filtered dataset of about 8000 protein chains are described, and the resulting changes and improvements to model validation as seen by users are explained. Expand
Conformation‐dependent backbone geometry restraints set a new standard for protein crystallographic refinement
TLDR
This successful implementation of a conformation‐dependent library (CDL) of restraints for the protein backbone paves the way for further aspects of the context dependence of ideal geometry to be characterized and applied to improve experimental and predictive modeling accuracy. Expand
Accurate geometries for “Mountain pass” regions of the Ramachandran plot using quantum chemical calculations
TLDR
It is confirmed that quantum chemistry computations add valuable support for detailed analysis of local structural arrangements in proteins, providing improved or missing data for less understood high‐energy or unusual regions. Expand
Discrete restraint‐based protein modeling and the Cα‐trace problem
We present a novel de novo method to generate protein models from sparse, discretized restraints on the conformation of the main chain and side chain atoms. We focus on Cα‐trace generation, theExpand
Boltzmann‐type distribution of side‐chain conformation in proteins
TLDR
The results can be interpreted with a model that considers the structure of a folded protein as resulting from packing imperfectly complementary parts, with a requirement of an overall low energy. Expand
Refining the description of peptide backbone conformations improves protein simulations using the GROMOS 53A6 force field
TLDR
Extensive molecular dynamics simulations of five proteins and two peptides in solution indicate that refined treatments of backbone dihedral angles lead to substantial improvements of the simulations, and refinements for the descriptions of peptide backbone conformations for this GROMOS 53A6 parameter set are derived.

A global Ramachandran score identifies protein structures with unlikely stereochemistry
TLDR
A re-implementation of the Rama-Z score is described in the Computational Crystallography Toolbox along with a new algorithm to estimate its uncertainty for individual models; final implementations are available both in Phenix and in PDB-REDO. Expand

TAP score: torsion angle propensity normalization applied to local protein structure evaluation
TLDR
A novel procedure for energy normalization (TAP) has significantly improved the possibility to recognize the best experimental structures and will allow the user to more reliably isolate problematic structures in the context of automated experimental structure determination. Expand

TLDR
Empirical data describing how equilibrium peptide geometry varies as a function of conformation confirm and extend quantum mechanics calculations, and have predictive value that will aid both theoretical and experimental analyses of protein structure. Expand
Stereochemical quality of protein structure coordinates
TLDR
The parameters used in this evaluation are not novel, and are easily calculated from structure coordinates, which provide a simple guide as to the reliability of a structure, in addition to the most important measures, resolution and R‐factor. Expand
The penultimate rotamer library
TLDR
The resulting library shows significant differences from previous ones, differences validated by considering the likelihood of systematic misfitting of models to electron density maps and by plotting changes in rotamer frequency with B‐factor. Expand

Disallowed Ramachandran conformations of amino acid residues in protein structures.
TLDR
An analysis of the nature and distribution of disallowed Ramachandran conformations of amino acid residues observed in high resolution protein crystal structures has been carried out and reveals instances of conservation of unusual stereochemistry. Expand
Exploring steric constraints on protein mutations using MAGE/PROBE
TLDR
This paper presents a simple way of using the sensitive geometry of all‐atom contacts (including hydrogens) to answer the question of whether the new side chain is compatible with the existing structure; only if it is compatible can the interpretation of mutational results be straightforward.

Free R value: a novel statistical quantity for assessing the accuracy of crystal structures
TLDR
A statistical quantity (RfreeT) is defined that measures the agreement between observed and computed structure factor amplitudes for a 'test' set of reflections that is omitted in the modelling and refinement process and will provide a measure of the information content of recently proposed models of thermal motion and disorder, time-averaging and bulk solvent.

Visualizing and quantifying molecular goodness-of-fit: small-probe contact dots with explicit hydrogen atoms.
TLDR
It was determined that, in general, methyl groups pack well in the default staggered conformation, except for the terminal methyl groups of methionine residues, which required rotational optimization, and high-resolution structures show impressively well-fitted packing interactions. Expand
Asparagine and glutamine: using hydrogen atom contacts in the choice of side-chain amide orientation.
TLDR
Small-probe contact dot surface analysis was used to choose between the two possible orientations for each of 1554 asparagine and glutamine side-chain amide groups, and it seems that the H-bond and the atomic-clash criteria independently look at the same structural realities. Expand
