Séminaire du Dr Dirk Stratmann, maître de conférences à l'Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Institut de Minéralogie et de Physique des Milieux Condensés (IMPMC) : Sub-domain protein fragments
Title: Sub-domain protein fragments
Abstract: Globular proteins can be decomposed into sub-domain structural fragments with
tight ends. These “tightened end fragments (TEF)” (also named "closed loops") play an
important role for the fold of a protein. We propose here an alternative approach for the TEF
decomposition of a protein structure aiming at a better cover of the chain. For a biophysical
sound framework for the TEF decomposition of a protein structure, we search to predict the
conformational stability of a TEF taken alone to select the most stable TEFs for the
decomposition. We would like to apply 3D-Blast  for the structural classification of the
TEFs. At the beginning of the talk, I will also give a short summary of my former work
(automated NMR spectra assignment (NOEnet), quantitative use of NMR chemical shifts
for protein-protein docking (CS-HADDOCK)).
