HB plot offers a simple way of analyzing protein secondary structure and tertiary structure. Hydrogen bonds stabilizing secondary structural elements (secondary hydrogen bonds) and those formed between distant amino acid residues - defined as tertiary hydrogen bonds - can be easily distinguished in HB plot, thus, amino acid residues involved in stabilizing protein structure and function can be identified. By analyzing the network of tertiary interactions the possible spread of information within a protein can be investigated as well. MarvinSpace is used for presenting the protein 3D structure.
