Prediction of Residue Status to Be Protected or Not Protected From Hydrogen Exchange Using Amino Acid Sequence Only



Nikita V Dovidchenko, Oxana V Galzitskaya*

Abstract

We have outlined here some structural aspects of local flexibility. Important functional properties are related to flexible segments. We try to predict regions that have been shown to exhibit the highest probability of being folded in the equilibrium intermediate or native state and will be protected from hydrogen exchange using amino acid sequence only. Our approach FoldUnfold for the prediction of unstructured regions has been applied to seven different proteins. For 80% of the residues considered in this paper we can predict correctly their status: will they be protected or not from hydrogen exchange. An additional goal of our study is to assess whether properties inferred using the bioinformatics approach are easily applicable to predict behavior of proteins in solution.

"We have always had a fruitful cooperation and long-term experience of publishing with Bentham Open."

"A number of our original papers have appeared in its different journals, as the Bentham Open Publishers provides sufficient research in the field of science and technologies (belonging to the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, biomedical industries etc). The staff of the Bentham Open always treat our papers very seriously and gently during the rutile paper reviewing process, so far we always felt their kindness and highly cooperative support. Today, Bentham Open is providing a great support to science and research, giving opportunities of high standard publishing as well as promoting and enhancing selected papers around the world through communication and exchange of global scientific education."
