Hierarchical protein structure superposition using both secondary structure and atomic representations

A P Singh, D L Brutlag
1997 Proceedings. International Conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology  
In this paper we present a new algorithm for the comparison of proteins based on a hierarchy of structural representations, from the secondary structure level to the atomic level.  ...  We also performed searches of a representative set of the Protein Data Bank (PDB) using our program and detected structurally similarity between several distantly related proteins.  ...  The authors thank Russ Altman, Thomas Wu, Barry Robson, Brian Curless, Bernd Froehlich, and Tamara Shannon for their valuable discussions and editing assistance.  ...
