VeaR
the geometry-based structural highlighter for polypeptides



A unified description of protein structure is essential when structural similarity judgement, motif transitions or general folding are considered. In the applied approach, an assumption that all polypeptide chain conformations can be classified as helix-derived coerced invention of a new method of protein structure description based on geometrical parameters: radius of curvature R and dihedral angle between two consecutive peptide bond planes V. Developed basing on the model pentapeptides it helped to determine the general conformational subspace that turned out to be more useful than traditional φ/ψ mapping.
