IBMSaysProteinHydrophobicityPattern Could Verify Structure Prediction Techniques | GenomeWeb

Researchers at IBM’s Computational Biology Center have discovered a pattern in the hydrophobicity of soluble, globular proteins that they said could help validate computer simulations of protein structures.

In last week’s issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, IBM researcher David Silverman and his colleagues detailed the discovery of the pattern they found in the transition between hydrophobic amino acids on the inside of a protein to hydrophilic amino acids on the outside of a protein.
