what is ramachandran plot?what r its applications?..

Answer / richa thakur

ramachandran plot is a way to visualize dihedral angles phi
against psi of amino residues in protein structures. it
shows the possible conformation of of phi and psi angles
for a polypeptide.
its used to judge the quality of a model by finding
residues that r in unlikely or high energy conformations.

Answer / khandbahale d s

Ramachandran has constructed a plot of the allowed and
disallowed phi and psi angles of adjuscent c-c and c-N
single bond. Ramachandran plot explains the dihedral
angles, phi against psi of amino residues in protein
structures. it gives degree of rotaion of bonds relation to
each other.

Answer / navya

G.N Ramachandran recognised that an aminoacid residue in a
polypeptide chain cannot have just any pair of values
of "theta" and "psi".
By assuming that atoms behave as hard spheres allowed
ranges of theta and psi values can be predicted and
visualised in steric contour diagram called Ramachandran
plots.

Answer / sunilreddy.vancha

A Ramachandran plot (also known as a Ramachandran map or a
Ramachandran diagram), developed by Gopalasamudram Narayana
Ramachandran, is a way to visualize dihedral angles φ
against ψ of amino acid residues in protein structure. It
shows the possible conformations of φ and ψ angles for a
polypeptide.

Answer / vinay randhawa

A Ramachandran plot (also known as a Ramachandran map or a
Ramachandran diagram or a [φ,ψ] plot), developed by
Gopalasamudram Narayana Ramachandran and Viswanathan
Sasisekharan is a way to visualize dihedral angles ψ against
φ of amino acid residues in protein structure. It shows the
possible conformations of ψ and φ angles for a polypeptide.

Answer / surya renjith

A graphical representation in which the dihedral angle of rotation about the alpha carbon to carbonyl bond in polypeptides is plotted against the dihedral angle of rotation about the alpha carbon of nitrogen bond. Ramachandranplot is otherways called Conformational Map.

Answer / a. dela fuente

The above answers are correct, but in addition, it was
Viswanathan Sasisekharan who devised the phi, psi plot
(Ramachandran plot. It was actually turned down by N.
Ramachandran at first. For historical reasons (please see
literatures), it is better to call it phi, psi plot or
Sasisekharan plot to give credit to the original creator.
