- Sequence and structural features of carbohydrate binding in proteins and assessment of predictability using a neural network

..................................................

Figure 1.Some typical protein-carbohydrate interactions. All the atoms making hydrogen bonded contacts between sugars and amino acids are labelled.

Figure 2.Comparison of binding site propensity of each residue in Procarb40, PDNA62 & PLD116 (residue was marked as binding if any of its atom fell within 3.5 Å of any atom of the ligand/DNA/carbohydrate. Propensity values were obtained by pooling all residues of the same type in all proteins to a single database of binding and non-binding sites. To compute the error bars, propensity values were calculated for each protein separately and standard deviations in propensity values was used as an error bar.

Figure 3.Comparison between mean ASA values of residues in binding and non-binding sites for Procarb40. Error bars are taken from their standard deviation in each protein. The graph does not contain cystein and valine data as none of these residues were found to be in the binding regions.
