Using a least-squares fitting procedure, polypeptide backbones of one parallel and seven antiparallel beta-barrels were approximated with various curved surfaces. Although the hyperboloid gave better approximations to all the beta-barrel backbones than the ellipsoid, elliptical cylinder or catenoid, the best approximations were obtained with a novel surface, a twisted hyperboloid (strophoid). The root-mean-square errors between individual beta-barrels and the fitted strophoid surfaces ranged… CONTINUE READING
