Weighing the Right Way Amino acid propensities The original Chou-Fasman parameters found some strong tendencies among individual amino acids to prefer one type of secondary structure over others. Alanine , glutamate , leucine, and methionine were identified as helix formers, while proline and glycine , due to the unique conformational properties of their peptide bonds , commonly end a helix. The original Chou-Fasman parameters [5] were derived from a very small and non-representative sample of protein structures due to the small number of such structures that were known at the time of their original work.

These original parameters have since been shown to be unreliable [6] and have been updated from a current dataset, along with modifications to the initial algorithm. Unlike the more complex GOR method , it does not reflect the conditional probabilities of an amino acid to form a particular secondary structure given that its neighbors already possess that structure. This lack of cooperativity increases its computational efficiency but decreases its accuracy, since the propensities of individual amino acids are often not strong enough to render a definitive prediction.

As originally described, four out of any six contiguous amino acids were sufficient to nucleate helix, and three out of any contiguous five were sufficient for a sheet.

The probability thresholds for helix and strand nucleations are constant but not necessarily equal; originally 1. Turns are also evaluated in four-residue windows, but are calculated using a multi-step procedure because many turn regions contain amino acids that could also appear in helix or sheet regions.

Four-residue turns also have their own characteristic amino acids; proline and glycine are both common in turns. A turn is predicted only if the turn probability is greater than the helix or sheet probabilities and a probability value based on the positions of particular amino acids in the turn exceeds a predetermined threshold. The turn probability p t is determined as: where j is the position of the amino acid in the four-residue window. If p t exceeds an arbitrary cutoff value originally 7.

If the first two conditions are met but the probability of a beta sheet p b exceeds p t , then a sheet is predicted instead. Prediction of protein conformation.

Improved Chou-Fasman method for protein secondary structure prediction

Peptide Bond A chain of such peptide bonds is called polypeptide and is a protein. Amino acids are the basic building blocks of proteins. Fundamentally, amino acids are joined together by peptide bonds to form the basic structure of proteins. Amino acids play central roles both as building blocks of proteins and as intermediates in metabolism. The 20 amino acids that are found within proteins convey a vast array of chemical versatility.
