Abstract

This report describes a new set of macromolecular descriptors of relevance toprotein QSAR/QSPR studies, protein’s quadratic indices. These descriptors are calculatedfrom the macromolecular pseudograph’s α-carbon atom adjacency matrix. A study of theprotein stability effects for a complete set of alanine substitutions in Arc repressorillustrates this approach. Quantitative Structure-Stability Relationship (QSSR) modelsallow discriminating between near wild-type stability and reduced-stability A-mutants. Alinear discriminant function gives rise to excellent discrimination between 85.4% (35/41)and 91.67% (11/12) of near wild-type stability/reduced stability mutants in training andtest series, respectively. The model’s overall predictability oscillates from 80.49 until82.93, when n varies from 2 to 10 in leave-n-out cross validation procedures. This valuestabilizes around 80.49% when n was View Full-Text
