A new protein folding recognition potential function.
PROTEINS-STRUCTURE FUNCTION AND GENETICS（1995）
On the study of protein inverse folding problem, one goal is to find simple and efficient potential to evaluate the compatibility between structure and a given sequence. We present here a novo empirical mean force potential to address the importance of electrostatic interactions in protein inverse folding study. It is based on protein main chain polar fraction and constructed in a way similar with Sippl's from a database of 64 known independent three-dimensional protein structures. This potential was applied to recognize the protein native conformations among a conformation pool. Calculated results show that this potential is powerful in picking out native conformations, in addition it can also find structure similarity between proteins with low sequence similarity. The success of this new potential clearly shows the importance of electrostatic factors in protein inverse folding studies. (C) 1995 Wiley-Liss, Inc.更多
