Accessible Surface Areas...

Fri Aug 27 19:34:37 EST 1993

Dear netters:

Is anyone aware of an algorithm that can compute polar and non-polar
solvent accessible surface areas for a PARTIAL MOLECULAR SURFACE, i.e.
a region of approximately 1000 square angstroms around a particular
residue in a protein?

I am not familiar with a program that does it and do know that both
ACCESS and the MSP suite do not implement this.

Before I write my own code to do the same, I was wondering if someone
had already done this?

I would appreciate a quick response on this matter.
