Protein structural alphabets: beyond the secondary structure description: Structural alphabet : A review

Abstract : The considerable increase of the protein structural database allows to cross the line from the classical secondary structure description of proteins. While still confronted with numerous problems, defining structural alphabets is an emerging concept in the field of protein structure analysis. It is an attempt to objectively classify the whole set of conformations occurring in protein structures described by small overlapping fragments. It is expected to lead to a better understanding of protein architecture and to open new opportunities for protein structure prediction.
