Abstract

We have developed an automatic protein fingerprinting method for the evaluation of protein structural similarities based on secondary structure element compositions, spatial arrangements, lengths, and topologies, This methodcan rapidly identify proteins sharing structural homologies as we demonstrate with five test cases: the globins, the mammalian trypsinlike serine proteases, the immunoglobulins, the cupredoxins, and the actinlike ATPase domain-containing proteins. Principal components analysis of the similarity distance matrix calculated from an all-by-all comparison of 1,031 unique chains in the Protein Data Bank has produced a distribution of structures withina high-dimensional structural space. Fifty percent of the variance observed for this distribution is bounded by six axes, two of which encode structural variability within two large families, the immunoglobulins and the trypsinlike serine proteases, Many aspects of the spatial distribution remain stable upon reduction of the database to 140 proteins with minimal family overlap. The axes correlated with specific structural families are no longer observed. A clear hierarchy of organization is seen in the arrangement of protein structures in the universe. At the highest level, protein structurespopulate regions corresponding to the all-alpha, all-beta, and alpha/beta superfamilies, Large protein families are arranged along family-specific axes, forming local densely populated regions within the space. The lowest level of organization is intrafamilial; homologous structures are ordered by variations in peripheral secondary structure elements or by conformational shifts in the tertiary structure.
