1 Visualizing protein structures Proteins are complicated so visualization is tailored to what you want to show 1. Ball and stick details but is cluttered 2. Space flling only shows outside 3. Artistic renditions give overview but are imprecise

4 > 60,000 structure have been solved What have we learned? 1 Side chain location varies with polarity 2 Helices and β -strands/sheets combine in a variety of ways 3 Large proteins contain domains
Background image of page 4
5 Side chain location varies with polarity Non-polar residues — in the center (V, L, I, M, F) Charged polar residues — mostly on the surface (R, H, K, D, E) Uncharged polar residues — mostly on the outside (S, T, N, Q, Y) (the center they form hydrogen bonds with other polar side chains)
