FF12MC: A revised AMBER forcefield and new protein simulation protocol

PMCID: 5129589
PMID: 27348292
DOI: 10.1002/prot.25094

[…] , and GDT‐TS were also included in the present study. While sseRMSD, CαRMSD, GDT‐TS, GDT‐HA, and GDC‐all are five QSs based on global alignment, RPF and LDDT are two QSs based on local alignment. The SphereGrinder score and the CAD score were therefore included to balance the local‐alignment scores with the global‐alignment scores. Hereafter, RPF9 and LDDT15 denote the RPF and LDDT scores that wer […]


Evaluation of predictions in the CASP10 model refinement category

[…] lation and its choice is amino-acid-dependent. In this case, the cd values come from 10 different alignments of the target and the model with distance thresholds of 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, … 4.0, 4.5, and 5 Å.SphereGrinder (SphGr) score, which is calculated from local comparisons of predicted and observed atomic coordinate subsets. For each residue in the target structure, all atoms within 6 Å of its Cα in […]
