of Side-Chain and Main-Chain Hydrogen Bonding by Ian McDonald and Janet M
WWW Edition December 1994, original edition April 1993
Awarded 4/4 by the Magellan survey. This document is a graphical summary of
hydrogen bonding in a dataset of high-resolution protein structures. It
shows the distributions of the frequencies and geometries of hydrogen bonds
formed by main-chain and side-chain donors and acceptors. It is hoped that
it will serve as a record of the hydrogen bonding patterns of the standard
hydrogen bonding groups for molecular modellers and crystallographers who
would like to know whether the hydrogen bonding in their model is normative.
- ENZYME - Enzyme nomenclature database
ENZYME is a repository of information relative to the nomenclature of
enzymes. It is primarily based on the recommendations of the Nomenclature
Committee of the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (IUBMB)
and it describes each type of characterized enzyme for which an EC (Enzyme
Commission) number has been provided. Release 24.0, January 1999, and
updates up to 05-Feb-1999 (3704 entries)
- PROSITE Database of protein families and domains
PROSITE is a database of protein families and domains. It
consists of biologically significant sites, patterns and profiles that help
to reliably identify to which known protein family (if any) a new sequence
belongs. Release 15, July 1998 and updates up to 05-Feb-1999 (contains 1025
documentation entries that describe 1361 different patterns, rules and
OF TERMS USED IN MEDICINAL CHEMISTRY
The objective of the glossary is to provide in a single
document a consistent terminology and concise definitions of terms covering
the various aspects of medicinal chemistry. This was felt necessary with
regard to the rapid changes occurring in medicinal chemistry and also by the
need to establish international definition standards. Effectively the
possibility exists that in different countries certain terms may not have
the same meaning, in such a case the creation of an internationally accepted
definition is particularly justified.
