A look at the methods and algorithms used to predict proteinstructure A thorough knowledge of the function and structure of proteinsis critical for the advancement of biology and the life sciences aswell as the development of better drugs, higher-yield crops, andeven synthetic bio-fuels. To that end, this reference sheds lighton the methods used for protein structure prediction and revealsthe key applications of modeled structures. This indispensable bookcovers the applications of modeled protein structures and unravelsthe relationship between pure sequence information andthree-dimensional structure, which continues to be one of thegreatest challenges in molecular biology. With this resource, readers will find an all-encompassingexamination of the problems, methods, tools, servers, databases,and applications of protein structure prediction and they willacquire unique insight into the future applications of the modeledprotein structures. The book begins with a thorough introduction tothe protein structure prediction problem and is divided into fourthemes: a background on structure prediction, the prediction ofstructural elements, tertiary structure prediction, and functionalinsights. Within those four sections, the following topics arecovered: Databases and resources that are commonly used for proteinstructure prediction The structure prediction flagship assessment (CASP) and theprotein structure initiative (PSI) Definitions of recurring substructures and the computationalapproaches used for solving sequence problems Difficulties with contact map prediction and how sophisticatedmachine learning methods can solve those problems Structure prediction methods that rely on homology modeling,threading, and fragment assembly Hybrid methods that achieve high-resolution proteinstructures Parts of the protein structure that may be conserved and usedto interact with other biomolecules How the loop prediction problem can be used for refinement ofthe modeled structures The computational model that detects the differences betweenprotein structure and its modeled mutant Whether working in the field of bioinformatics or molecularbiology research or taking courses in protein modeling, readerswill find the content in this book invaluable.

Proteins: Structure and Function is a comprehensive introduction to the study of proteins and their importance to modern biochemistry. Each chapter addresses the structure and function of proteins with a definitive theme designed to enhance student understanding. Opening with a brief historical overview of the subject the book moves on to discuss the ‘building blocks’ of proteins and their respective chemical and physical properties. Later chapters explore experimental and computational methods of comparing proteins, methods of protein purification and protein folding and stability. The latest developments in the field are included and key concepts introduced in a user-friendly way to ensure that students are able to grasp the essentials before moving on to more advanced study and analysis of proteins. An invaluable resource for students of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Medicine and Chemistry providing a modern approach to the subject of Proteins.

This book serves as an introduction to protein structure and function. Starting with their makeup from simple building blocks, called amino acids, the 3-dimensional structure of proteins is explained. This leads to a discussion how misfolding of proteins causes diseases like cancer, various encephalopathies, or diabetes. Enzymology and modern concepts of enzyme kinetics are then introduced, taking into account the physiological, pharmacological and medical significance of this often neglected topic. This is followed by thorough coverage of hæmoglobin and myoglobin, immunoproteins, motor proteins and movement, cell-cell interactions, molecular chaperones and chaperonins, transport of proteins to various cell compartments and solute transport across biological membranes. Proteins in the laboratory are also covered, including a detailed description of the purification and determination of proteins, as well as their characterisation for size and shape, structure and molecular interactions. The book emphasises the link between protein structure, physiological function and medical significance. This book can be used for graduate and advanced undergraduate classes covering protein structure and function and as an introductory text for researchers in protein biochemistry, molecular and cell biology, chemistry, biophysics, biomedicine and related courses. About the author: Dr. Buxbaum is a biochemist with interest in enzymology and protein science. He has been working on the biochemistry of membrane transport proteins for nearly thirty years and has taught courses in biochemistry and biomedicine at several universities.

Guiding readers from the elucidation and analysis of a genomic sequence to the prediction of a protein structure and the identification of the molecular function, Introduction to Bioinformatics describes the rationale and limitations of the bioinformatics methods and tools that can help solve biological problems. Requiring only a limited mathematical and statistical background, the book shows how to efficiently apply these approaches to biological data and evaluate the resulting information. The author, an expert bioinformatics researcher, first addresses the ways of storing and retrieving the enormous amount of biological data produced every day and the methods of decrypting the information encoded by a genome. She then covers the tools that can detect and exploit the evolutionary and functional relationships among biological elements. Subsequent chapters illustrate how to predict the three-dimensional structure of a protein. The book concludes with a discussion of the future of bioinformatics. Even though the future will undoubtedly offer new tools for tackling problems, most of the fundamental aspects of bioinformatics will not change. This resource provides the essential information to understand bioinformatics methods, ultimately facilitating in the solution of biological problems.
