Figure 5
Understanding link torsions. In analogy to how the peptide-bond conformation is evaluated in proteins, glycosidic bonds can also be described in terms of torsions. These have been denoted in lowercase Greek letters in order to avoid confusion with the Cremer–Pople parameters (Cremer & Pople, 1975BB22), and match the nomenclature as reviewed by Lütteke (2009BB58) and used by the CARP server (Lütteke et al., 2005BB61, 2006BB59) as well as Privateer (Agirre, Iglesias-Fernández et al., 2015BB8). Some of these torsion angles are expected to have predictable values as they involve an sp2-hybridized C atom, e.g. ψN. This figure was generated with CCP4mg (McNicholas et al., 2011BB65).
