The deliberately misfolded structures from Chris Sander's group ARE
following URL.  These files can also be retrieved via FTP and through
the WEB server at EMBL.

Admin=EMBL Computer Group <unixadmin at embl-heidelberg.de>

I am including the README file here for your infomation.

Database of deliberately misfolded protein models

Holm, L., Sander, C. (1992) Evaluation of protein models by atomic solvation 
preference.  J. Mol. Biol. 225, 93-105.

The models were generated by selecting pairs of known structures which
have an equal number of residues.  The backbone conformation of the crystallo-
graphic structure was kept, but the sequences were swapped and side chains
optimized using a fast Monte Carlo algorithm with a simple energy function.
The misfolded models were then subjected to 500 steps of steepest descents 
energy minimization using the GROMOS program.

The models are named AAAAonBBBB, where AAAA is the Protein Data Bank (PDB)
identifier for the sequence and BBBB is the PDB identifier of the backbone
