re amino acid atom names



 The amino acid atoms names are defined in the IUPAC-IUB
 pages and please note for pro-chiral atoms there is
 a difference between CD1 and CD2 as defined by the torsion
 angles see http://www.chem.qmw.ac.uk/iupac/misc/ppep4.html
 and pages ppep3.html /ppep1.html
 software like procheck's clean will check torsion angles
 prochirality rules also determine the names of some
 of the hydrogens see for example

 see the paper
 J. L. Markley, Y. Arata, A. Bax, C. W. Hilbers, R. Kaptein, B. D.
        Sykes, P. E. Wright, and K. Wuethrich,"Recommendations for the
        Presentation of NMR Structures of Proteins and Nucleic Acids,"
        Pure & Appl. Chem. 70, 117-142 (1998).
