Abstract

A new algorithm is presented which can be used to examine the physical-chemical properties of amino acids at sites of co-or post-translational processing. This algorithm has been incorporated into a computer program known as PARA-SITE. Thirty different parameters can be studied for amino acids which occupy comparable positions in naturally occurring proteins. PARA-SITE should aid in the design and interpretation of protein engineering experiments which seek to dissect structure/ activity relationships.
