The alignment of protein structures in three dimensions.

Abstract

This article extends the use of dynamic programming algorithms in molecular sequence comparison to the alignment of the alpha-carbon (C alpha-) coordinates of two protein structures in three dimensions. The algorithm is described in detail and is applied to the comparison of alpha-lactalbumin with both hen egg white lysozyme and T4 lysozyme. In the first… (More)
