    Scooby-domain (sequence hydrophobicity predicts domains) is a fast and simple method to identify globular domains in protein sequence, based on the observed lengths and hydrophobicities of domains from proteins with known tertiary structure. The prediction method successfully identifies sequence...

    Using a set of 372 proteins representative of a variety of 56 distinct globular folds, a statistical correlation was observed between two recently revealed features of protein structures: tightened end fragments or 'closed loops', i. e. sequence fragments that are able in three-dimensional (3D)...

    Analysis showed that the globular or natively unfolded state of a protein can be inferred not only from a lower hydrophobicity or a higher charge, but also from the average environment density (average number of close residues located within a certain distance of a given one) of its residues. A...

    Background: Protein sequence alignments and database search methods use standard scoring matrices calculated from amino acid substitution frequencies in general sets of proteins. These general-purpose matrices are not optimal to align accurately sequences with marked compositional biases, such...

    The distributions of large hydrophobic residues coded by XTX are important in protein stability and function. Thymine is the only nucleotide got changed (to Uracil) in the base upon transcription. This leaves the mRNA less hydrophobic compared to its DNA counterpart. Large Hydrophobic Residues...

    Secretory phospholipase A (PLA) catalyses the hydrolysis of the sn-2 position of glycerophospholipids to liberate arachidonic acid, a precursor of eicosanoids, that are known mediators of inflammation. The group III PLA enzymes are present in a wide array of organisms across many species with...
