Fractal Symmetry of Protein Exterior

The basic query that fractal dimensions try and solution is set the scales in Nature. For a approach as non-idealistic and complicated as a protein, learning scale-invariance turns into fairly very important. Fractal Symmetry of Protein external investigates the various elements of some of the scales at which we describe protein biophysical and biochemical phenomena.

3D point-based registration can be formulated as follows. Given k source points pi , and k target points k qi , the task is to find a rigid transformation R such that i=1 qi − pi ◦ R 2 is minimized. To register BAC-triangles (k = 3) onto the x-y plane, we arbitrarily selected a triangle in this plane as the target structure, and applied the algorithm of Horn [7]. After registration, each vertex of the triangles can be represented by a 2D coordinate or a complex number. Note, that originally the BAC-triangles are labeled clockwise or counterclockwise.

In any case, before proceeding to the successive iteration of nontopological erosion, topological expansion is performed, to restore size and shape of foreground components, which have been modified by non-topological erosion. A crucial difference with respect to a thresholding method that would assign to the background all pixels with gray-level g, g<θi+k×δ, is that our criterion removes only border pixels. Thus, pixels characterized by gray-level g, g<θi+k×δ, possibly present within a darker component are not assigned to the background, so that spurious background components are not created.

Figs. 3a,b refer to the real datasets AR1 and AR2, and Figs. 3c,d to the stable and random triangles. The small circles represent the mean shape of the triangles (mean triangle). The vectors (circles attached to line segments) indicate the direction and magnitude of the variation along a certain principal component (PC) of the Procrustes residual. Generally the first PC captures the most dominant variation. In comparison to the random triangles (Fig. 3d), both real datasets have a larger dominant variation along the first PC compared to the other PCs.
