Quantitative Comparison of Conformational Ensembles
AbstractA number of measures have been used in the structural biology literature to compare the shapes or conformations of biological macromolecules. However, the issue of how to compare two ensembles of conformations has received far less attention. Herein, the problem of how to quantitatively compare two such ensembles is addressed in several different ways using concepts from probability and information theory. Ultimately, such metrics could be used in the evaluation of structure-prediction algorithms and the analysis of how conformational mobility is inhibited by bound ligands.
