Comparing Residue Clusters from Thermophilic and Mesophilic Enzymes Reveals Adaptive Mechanisms

PLoS One
PMCID: 4704809
PMID: 26741367
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0145848

[…] h closer optimum activity temperatures.To verify our findings we evaluate our entire dataset with an alternative method used to measure the quality of atomic packing in protein structures. We use the VLDP web server ( to compute residue contact number for each residue cluster. VLDP uses a Laguerre Tessellation to evaluate residue volumes in protein stru […]


Structural neighboring property for identifying protein protein binding sites
