    The results show that the rank order of helical propensity for the nineteen amino acids changes with solvent environment. This result will be particularly important if proteins undergo hydrophobic collapse before secondary structures are formed, because amino acids can then see different solvent environments as the secondary structures are formed. Dehydrins constitute a class of intrinsically disordered proteins that are expressed under conditions of water-related stress. Characteristic of the dehydrins are some highly conserved stretches of seven to 17 residues that are repetitively scattered in their sequences, the K-, S-, Y-, and Lys-rich segments. In this study, we investigate the putative role of these segments in promoting structure.

    For each protein amino acid, the average value of helix, beta strand and coil propensity has been determined by considering their surrounding amino acids in a window of length n. For each secondary structure, it has been evaluated the better window as well as the better coefficient to be applied to the average propensity of the segment.   Proteins are an important building block of life and are vital for almost every process that keeps cells alive. These molecules are made from chains of smaller molecules called amino acids linked together. The specific order of amino acids in a protein determines its shape and structure, which in turn controls what the protein can do. However, a group of proteins called 'intrinsically.

    particular nearby amino acids on Sj, assuming the approximation is good enough. Such an approach is typical (39). Statistical approach to the protein secondary structure prediction is usually based on amino acids propensities to be part of different types of secondary structures (18).

Some amino acids occur more frequently in alpha-helices than others; this tendency is known as helix propensity. Here we derive a helix propensity scale for solvent-exposed residues in the middle positions of alpha-helices.

The scale is based on measurements of helix propensity in 11 systems, including both proteins and peptides. Download Citation | The relative order of helical propensity of amino acids changes with solvent environment | A model peptide of sequence Ac-Y-VAXAK-VAXAK-VAXAK-NH(2), where X. Results.

The helical intrinsic secondary structure propensities were defined (Muñoz and Serrano a) as the free energy required to fix an amino acid in helical angles, excluding the main-chain–main-chain hydrogen contribution, local interactions with other amino acids in the peptide chain, and electrostatic interactions with the helix by: The alpha helix (α-helix) is a common motif in the secondary structure of proteins and is a right hand-helix conformation in which every backbone N−H group hydrogen bonds to the backbone C=O group of the amino acid located three or four residues earlier along the protein sequence.

The alpha helix is also called a classic Pauling–Corey–Branson α-helix. A large number of studies have been carried out to obtain amino acid propensities for α-helices and β-sheets. The obtained propensities for α-helices are consistent with each other, and the pair-wise correlation coefficient is frequently high.

On the other hand, the β-sheet propensities obtained by several studies differed significantly, indicating that the context significantly affects β Cited by: The propensity of amino acids to adopt a polyproline II-like conformation plays a role in their triple-helix rankings, as shown by a moderate correlation of triple-helix propensity with frequency.

The intrinsic helical propensity of the amino acids is normally assumed to be independent of their position within the α-helix because this structure is very symmetrical Finkelstein et alStapley et alMunoz and Serrano ability shown by helix/coil transition models to describe all the experimental observations obtained so far has further supported this hypothesis.

To further explore this periodicity, we investigated the relationship between position in a helix and the amino acid filling that position. Following Kumar & Bansal, 12 we define position-specific propensity (P ij) to be: (2) P ij = f ij f i = n ij / ∑ i n ij N i / ∑ i N i where n ij and f ij are the number and fraction, respectively, of a given amino acid (type i) in helical position j, N.

Using D-amino acids as the building blocks for bioactive peptides can dramatically increase their potency. However, simply swapping regular levorotary amino acids for dextrorotary (D)-amino acids alters the peptide surface topology and function is lost.

There has been considerable debate about the intrinsic PPII propensity of amino acid residues in denatured polypeptides.

An antimicrobial peptide, known as V13K, was utilized as the framework to study the effects of charge, hydrophobicity and helicity on the biophysical properties and biological activities of α-helical peptides.

Six amino acids (Lys, Glu, Gly, Ser, Ala, and Leu) were individually used to substitute the original hydrophobic valine at the selected sixteenth location on the non-polar face of V13K.
