Abstract: Methionine (Met) is a structurally versatile amino acid most commonly found in protein cores and at protein-protein interfaces. Thus, a complete description of the structure of Met is important for a fundamental understanding of protein structure and design. In previous work, we showed that the hard-sphere dipeptide model is able to recapitulate the side-chain dihedral angle distributions observed in high-resolution protein crystal structures for the nine amino acids we have studied to date: Val, Thr, Ser, Leu…
