Abstract

We have developed a concise tableau representation of protein folding patterns, based on the order and contact patterns of elements of secondary structure: helices and strands of sheet. The tableaux provide a database, derived from the protein data bank, minable for studies on the general principles of protein architecture, including investigation of the relationship between local supersecondary structure of proteins and the complete folding topology. This chapter outlines the tableaux representation of protein folding patterns and methods to use them to identify structural and substructural similarities.
