    The role of side-chain entropy (SCE) in protein folding has long been speculated about but is still not fully understood. Utilizing a newly developed Monte Carlo method, we conducted a systematic investigation of how the SCE relates to the size of the protein and how it differs among a protein's...

    Motivation: Computationally generated non-native protein structure conformations (or decoys) are often used for designing protein folding simulation methods and force fields. However, almost all the decoy sets currently used in literature suffer from uneven root mean square deviation (RMSD)...

    Background: The prediction of protein structure can be facilitated by the use of constraints based on a knowledge of functional sites. Without this information it is still possible to predict which residues are likely to be part of a functional site and this information can be used to select...

    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...

    We present a novel technique, based on the principle of maximum entropy, for deriving the solvation energy parameters of amino acids from the knowledge of the solvent accessible areas in experimentally determined native state structures as well as high quality decoys of proteins.
