PALES is a software for analysis of residual dipolar couplings. Its main component is the PALES (Prediction of ALignmEnt from Structure) simulation that predicts the magnitude and orientation of a sterically induced alignment tensor from a solute's (protein/nucleic acid/oligosaccharide) three-dimensional shape. This can be used to validate the correctness of derived structures, to distinguish monomeric from multimeric structures and to evaluate multiple-conformer models for flexible proteins. In addition, features for analysis of experimental dipolar couplings and dipolar coupling tensors are available, such as best-fitting a dipolar coupling tensor to its corresponding 3D structure.
