The MIR algorithm provides an ab initio prediction of a protein's core residues. An improved version, the MIR2, is presented and validated on 3203 proteins from PDB. Structures are decomposed in Closed Loops, their limits constituting the observed core residues. They are predicted by MIR2 with an accuracy approaching 80%.

More about this publication?
  • Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
