A Drosophila TNF-receptor-associated factor (TRAF) binds the ste20 kinase Misshapen and activates Jun kinase. (1/46456)

Two families of protein kinases that are closely related to Ste20 in their kinase domain have been identified - the p21-activated protein kinase (Pak) and SPS1 families [1-3]. In contrast to Pak family members, SPS1 family members do not bind and are not activated by GTP-bound p21Rac and Cdc42. We recently placed a member of the SPS1 family, called Misshapen (Msn), genetically upstream of the c-Jun amino-terminal (JNK) mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase module in Drosophila [4]. The failure to activate JNK in Drosophila leads to embryonic lethality due to the failure of these embryos to stimulate dorsal closure [5-8]. Msn probably functions as a MAP kinase kinase kinase kinase in Drosophila, activating the JNK pathway via an, as yet, undefined MAP kinase kinase kinase. We have identified a Drosophila TNF-receptor-associated factor, DTRAF1, by screening for Msn-interacting proteins using the yeast two-hybrid system. In contrast to the mammalian TRAFs that have been shown to activate JNK, DTRAF1 lacks an amino-terminal 'Ring-finger' domain, and overexpression of a truncated DTRAF1, consisting of only its TRAF domain, activates JNK. We also identified another DTRAF, DTRAF2, that contains an amino-terminal Ring-finger domain. Msn specifically binds the TRAF domain of DTRAF1 but not that of DTRAF2. In Drosophila, DTRAF1 is thus a good candidate for an upstream molecule that regulates the JNK pathway by interacting with, and activating, Msn. Consistent with this idea, expression of a dominant-negative Msn mutant protein blocks the activation of JNK by DTRAF1. Furthermore, coexpression of Msn with DTRAF1 leads to the synergistic activation of JNK. We have extended some of these observations to the mammalian homolog of Msn, Nck-interacting kinase (NIK), suggesting that TRAFs also play a critical role in regulating Ste20 kinases in mammals.  (+info)

Identification of sonic hedgehog as a candidate gene responsible for the polydactylous mouse mutant Sasquatch. (2/46456)

The mouse mutants of the hemimelia-luxate group (lx, lu, lst, Dh, Xt, and the more recently identified Hx, Xpl and Rim4; [1] [2] [3] [4] [5]) have in common preaxial polydactyly and longbone abnormalities. Associated with the duplication of digits are changes in the regulation of development of the anterior limb bud resulting in ectopic expression of signalling components such as Sonic hedgehog (Shh) and fibroblast growth factor-4 (Fgf4), but little is known about the molecular causes of this misregulation. We generated, by a transgene insertion event, a new member of this group of mutants, Sasquatch (Ssq), which disrupted aspects of both anteroposterior (AP) and dorsoventral (DV) patterning. The mutant displayed preaxial polydactyly in the hindlimbs of heterozygous embryos, and in both hindlimbs and forelimbs of homozygotes. The Shh, Fgf4, Fgf8, Hoxd12 and Hoxd13 genes were all ectopically expressed in the anterior region of affected limb buds. The insertion site was found to lie close to the Shh locus. Furthermore, expression from the transgene reporter has come under the control of a regulatory element that directs a pattern mirroring the endogenous expression pattern of Shh in limbs. In abnormal limbs, both Shh and the reporter were ectopically induced in the anterior region, whereas in normal limbs the reporter and Shh were restricted to the zone of polarising activity (ZPA). These data strongly suggest that Ssq is caused by direct interference with the cis regulation of the Shh gene.  (+info)

High-throughput screening of small molecules in miniaturized mammalian cell-based assays involving post-translational modifications. (3/46456)

BACKGROUND: Fully adapting a forward genetic approach to mammalian systems requires efficient methods to alter systematically gene products without prior knowledge of gene sequences, while allowing for the subsequent characterization of these alterations. Ideally, these methods would also allow function to be altered in a temporally controlled manner. RESULTS: We report the development of a miniaturized cell-based assay format that enables a genetic-like approach to understanding cellular pathways in mammalian systems using small molecules, rather than mutations, as the source of gene-product alterations. This whole-cell immunodetection assay can sensitively detect changes in specific cellular macromolecules in high-density arrays of mammalian cells. Furthermore, it is compatible with screening large numbers of small molecules in nanoliter to microliter culture volumes. We refer to this assay format as a 'cytoblot', and demonstrate the use of cytoblotting to monitor biosynthetic processes such as DNA synthesis, and post-translational processes such as acetylation and phosphorylation. Finally, we demonstrate the applicability of these assays to natural-product screening through the identification of marine sponge extracts exhibiting genotype-specific inhibition of 5-bromodeoxyuridine incorporation and suppression of the anti-proliferative effect of rapamycin. CONCLUSIONS: We show that cytoblots can be used for high-throughput screening of small molecules in cell-based assays. Together with small-molecule libraries, the cytoblot assay can be used to perform chemical genetic screens analogous to those used in classical genetics and thus should be applicable to understanding a wide variety of cellular processes, especially those involving post-transitional modifications.  (+info)

Interleukin-8 receptor modulates IgE production and B-cell expansion and trafficking in allergen-induced pulmonary inflammation. (4/46456)

We examined the role of the interleukin-8 (IL-8) receptor in a murine model of allergen-induced pulmonary inflammation using mice with a targeted deletion of the murine IL-8 receptor homologue (IL-8r-/-). Wild-type (Wt) and IL-8r-/- mice were systemically immunized to ovalbumin (OVA) and were exposed with either single or multiple challenge of aerosolized phosphate-buffered saline (OVA/PBS) or OVA (OVA/OVA). Analysis of cells recovered from bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) revealed a diminished recruitment of neutrophils to the airway lumen after single challenge in IL-8r-/- mice compared with Wt mice, whereas multiply challenged IL-8r-/- mice had increased B cells and fewer neutrophils compared with Wt mice. Both Wt and IL-8r-/- OVA/OVA mice recruited similar numbers of eosinophils to the BAL fluid and exhibited comparable degrees of pulmonary inflammation histologically. Both total and OVA-specific IgE levels were greater in multiply challenged IL-8r-/- OVA/OVA mice than in Wt mice. Both the IL-8r-/- OVA/OVA and OVA/PBS mice were significantly less responsive to methacholine than their respective Wt groups, but both Wt and IL-8r mice showed similar degrees of enhancement after multiple allergen challenge. The data demonstrate that the IL-8r modulates IgE production, airway responsiveness, and the composition of the cells (B cells and neutrophils) recruited to the airway lumen in response to antigen.  (+info)

Concomitant activation of pathways downstream of Grb2 and PI 3-kinase is required for MET-mediated metastasis. (5/46456)

The Met tyrosine kinase - the HGF receptor - induces cell transformation and metastasis when constitutively activated. Met signaling is mediated by phosphorylation of two carboxy-terminal tyrosines which act as docking sites for a number of SH2-containing molecules. These include Grb2 and p85 which couple the receptor, respectively, with Ras and PI 3-kinase. We previously showed that a Met mutant designed to obtain preferential coupling with Grb2 (Met2xGrb2) is permissive for motility, increases transformation, but - surprisingly - is impaired in causing invasion and metastasis. In this work we used Met mutants optimized for binding either p85 alone (Met2xPI3K) or p85 and Grb2 (MetPI3K/Grb2) to evaluate the relative importance of Ras and PI 3-kinase as downstream effectors of Met. Met2xPI3K was competent in eliciting motility, but not transformation, invasion, or metastasis. Conversely, MetP13K/Grb2 induced motility, transformation, invasion and metastasis as efficiently as wild type Met. Furthermore, the expression of constitutively active PI 3-kinase in cells transformed by the Met2xGrb2 mutant, fully rescued their ability to invade and metastasize. These data point to a central role for PI 3-kinase in Met-mediated invasiveness, and indicate that simultaneous activation of Ras and PI 3-kinase is required to unleash the Met metastatic potential.  (+info)

Polarized distribution of Bcr-Abl in migrating myeloid cells and co-localization of Bcr-Abl and its target proteins. (6/46456)

Bcr-Abl plays a critical role in the pathogenesis of Philadelphia chromosome-positive leukemia. Although a large number of substrates and interacting proteins of Bcr-Abl have been identified, it remains unclear whether Bcr-Abl assembles multi-protein complexes and if it does where these complexes are within cells. We have investigated the localization of Bcr-Abl in 32D myeloid cells attached to the extracellular matrix. We have found that Bcr-Abl displays a polarized distribution, colocalizing with a subset of filamentous actin at trailing portions of migrating 32D cells, and localizes on the cortical F-actin and on vesicle-like structures in resting 32D cells. Deletion of the actin binding domain of Bcr-Abl (Bcr-AbI-AD) dramatically enhances the localization of Bcr-Abl on the vesicle-like structures. These distinct localization patterns of Bcr-Abl and Bcr-Abl-AD enabled us to examine the localization of Bcr-Abl substrate and interacting proteins in relation to Bcr-Abl. We found that a subset of biochemically defined target proteins of Bcr-Abl redistributed and co-localized with Bcr-Abl on F-actin and on vesicle-like structures. The co-localization of signaling proteins with Bcr-Abl at its sites of localization supports the idea that Bcr-Abl forms a multi-protein signaling complex, while the polarized distribution and vesicle-like localization of Bcr-Abl may play a role in leukemogenesis.  (+info)

Telomerase reverse transcriptase gene is a direct target of c-Myc but is not functionally equivalent in cellular transformation. (7/46456)

The telomerase reverse transcriptase component (TERT) is not expressed in most primary somatic human cells and tissues, but is upregulated in the majority of immortalized cell lines and tumors. Here, we identify the c-Myc transcription factor as a direct mediator of telomerase activation in primary human fibroblasts through its ability to specifically induce TERT gene expression. Through the use of a hormone inducible form of c-Myc (c-Myc-ER), we demonstrate that Myc-induced activation of the hTERT promoter requires an evolutionarily conserved E-box and that c-Myc-ER-induced accumulation of hTERT mRNA takes place in the absence of de novo protein synthesis. These findings demonstrate that the TERT gene is a direct transcriptional target of c-Myc. Since telomerase activation frequently correlates with immortalization and telomerase functions to stabilize telomers in cycling cells, we tested whether Myc-induced activation of TERT gene expression represents an important mechanism through which c-Myc acts to immortalize cells. Employing the rat embryo fibroblast cooperation assay, we show that TERT is unable to substitute for c-Myc in the transformation of primary rodent fibroblasts, suggesting that the transforming activities of Myc extend beyond its ability to activate TERT gene expression and hence telomerase activity.  (+info)

Leptin suppression of insulin secretion and gene expression in human pancreatic islets: implications for the development of adipogenic diabetes mellitus. (8/46456)

Previously we demonstrated the expression of the long form of the leptin receptor in rodent pancreatic beta-cells and an inhibition of insulin secretion by leptin via activation of ATP-sensitive potassium channels. Here we examine pancreatic islets isolated from pancreata of human donors for their responses to leptin. The presence of leptin receptors on islet beta-cells was demonstrated by double fluorescence confocal microscopy after binding of a fluorescent derivative of human leptin (Cy3-leptin). Leptin (6.25 nM) suppressed insulin secretion of normal islets by 20% at 5.6 mM glucose. Intracellular calcium responses to 16.7 mM glucose were rapidly reduced by leptin. Proinsulin messenger ribonucleic acid expression in islets was inhibited by leptin at 11.1 mM, but not at 5.6 mM glucose. Leptin also reduced proinsulin messenger ribonucleic acid levels that were increased in islets by treatment with 10 nM glucagon-like peptide-1 in the presence of either 5.6 or 11.1 mM glucose. These findings demonstrate direct suppressive effects of leptin on insulin-producing beta-cells in human islets at the levels of both stimulus-secretion coupling and gene expression. The findings also further indicate the existence of an adipoinsular axis in humans in which insulin stimulates leptin production in adipocytes and leptin inhibits the production of insulin in beta-cells. We suggest that dysregulation of the adipoinsular axis in obese individuals due to defective leptin reception by beta-cells may result in chronic hyperinsulinemia and may contribute to the pathogenesis of adipogenic diabetes.  (+info)

Protein structure prediction is an important problem in the post-genome era, which is one possible way to fill the gap between the rapid-growth sequences and the relative small number of proteins with experimentally determined structures. Despite the structural genomics initiatives and biochemical efforts, the cheapest and fastest way to obtain structural information is through prediction algorithms. Structure prediction, even in the absence of homology, is the first step of the sequence-structure-function paradigm. Great progress has been achieved in protein structure prediction during the last decades. The development of high-quality prediction methods has also been boosted by objective community-wide assessment experiments. However, the ultimate goal of protein structure prediction remains far away to reach. New algorithms, theory and advanced prediction techniques are necessary to facilitate the progress ...
The major challenge of ab initio protein structure predictions is the huge conformational space populated by large proteins which has to be sampled in order to find the native structure. Due to the size of the conformational space, the probability of sampling from the vicinity of the native conformation is low. But is it really necessary to consider all possible conformations while searching? Despite having diverse shapes and functions, proteins only populate a tiny part of the space of possible conformations. Our goal is to leverage our knowledge about these populated topologies to guide the search. We strongly believe that using this information during sampling will alleviate many of the problems arising from the size of the conformational space. This in turn should allow us to predict many proteins which are traditionally unsolved by ab initio. Contact: Mahmoud Mabrouk ...

The IntFOLD-TS method was developed according to the guiding principle that the model quality assessment (QA) would be the most critical stage for our template-based modeling pipeline. Thus, the IntFOLD-TS method firstly generates numerous alternate models, using in-house versions of several different sequence-structure alignment methods, which are then ranked in terms of global quality using our top performing QA method-ModFOLDclust2. In addition to the predicted global quality scores, the predictions of local errors are also provided in the resulting coordinate files, using scores that represent the predicted deviation of each residue in the model from the equivalent residue in the native structure. The IntFOLD-TS method was found to generate high quality 3D models for many of the CASP9 targets, whilst also providing highly accurate predictions of their per-residue errors. This important information may help to make the 3D models that are produced by the IntFOLD-TS method more useful for ...

Another direction that is being taken is to adapt primary sequence alignment methods to consider secondary and tertiary structure. There are a number of features of proteins integral to their function and interaction with other proteins that are not determined by amino acid sequence alone. Many proteins share functional properties despite vast sequence differences because of the shapes that they fold into. One method of simultaneously quantifying and visualizing these relationships is using a protein structure space map. [¹] Roughly speaking, a Protein structure space map is the result of scoring how well known proteins match, structurally. That score is used as a directional distance used to position families of proteins in relation to each other on a set of axes, closer if they are more similar, distantly if they are more dissimilar. Anyone can look at the structure space map and immediately judge how similar two proteins or protein families are by their proximity on the map.. There are a ...

The translation of personal genomics to precision medicine depends on the accurate interpretation of the multitude of genetic variants observed for each individual. However, even when genetic variants are predicted to modify a protein, their functional implications may be unclear. Many diseases are caused by genetic variants affecting important protein features, such as enzyme active sites or interaction interfaces. The scientific community has catalogued millions of genetic variants in genomic databases and thousands of protein structures in the Protein Data Bank. Mapping mutations onto three-dimensional (3D) structures enables atomic-level analyses of protein positions that may be important for the stability or formation of interactions; these may explain the effect of mutations and in some cases even open a path for targeted drug development. To accelerate progress in the integration of these data types, we held a two-day Gene Variation to 3D (GVto3D) workshop to report on the latest advances and to
With the accumulation of next generation sequencing data, there is increasing interest in the study of intra-species difference in molecular biology, especially in relation to disease analysis. Furthermore, the dynamics of the protein is being identified as a critical factor in its function. Although accuracy of protein structure prediction methods is high, provided there are structural templates, most methods are still insensitive to amino-acid differences at critical points that may change the overall structure. Also, predicted structures are inherently static and do not provide information about structural change over time. It is challenging to address the sensitivity and the dynamics by computational structure predictions alone. However, with the fast development of diverse mass spectrometry coupled experiments, low-resolution but fast and sensitive structural information can be obtained. This information can then be integrated into the structure prediction process to further improve the sensitivity

Interactions at the molecular level in the cellular environment play a very crucial role in maintaining the physiological functioning of the cell. These molecular interactions exist at varied levels viz. protein-protein interactions, protein-nucleic acid interactions or protein-small molecules interactions. Presently in the field, these interactions and their mechanisms mark intensively studied areas. Molecular interactions can also be studied computationally using the approach named as Molecular Docking. Molecular docking employs search algorithms to predict the possible conformations for interacting partners and then calculates interaction energies. However, docking proposes number of solutions as different docked poses and hence offers a serious challenge to identify the native (or near native) structures from the pool of these docked poses. Here, we propose a rigorous scoring scheme called DockScore which can be used to rank the docked poses and identify the best docked pose out of many as ...
One of the major unsolved problems in molecular biology today is the protein folding problem: given an amino acid sequence, predict the overall three-dimensional structure of the corresponding protein. It has been known since the seminal work of Christian B. Anfinsen in the early seventies that the sequence of a protein encodes its structure, but the exact details of the encoding still remain elusive.. Since the protein folding problem is of enormous practical, theoretical and medical importance - and in addition forms a fascinating intellectual challenge - it is often called the holy grail of bioinformatics. The Statistical Structural Biology group focuses on Bayesian, probabilistic models of protein structure and their application to protein structure prediction, protein design and protein structure determination from experimental data (NMR, SAXS), including data obtained from protein ensembles. Recently, we started working on evolutionary models of protein structure evolution.. We are ...
The creation of an automated method for determining 3D protein structure would be invaluable to the eld of biology and presents an interesting challenge to computer science. Unfortunately , given the current level of protein knowledge, a completely automated solution method is not yet feasible; therefore, our group has decided to integrate existing databases and theories to create a software system that assists X-ray crystallographers in specifying a particular protein structure. By breaking the problem of determining overall protein structure into small subproblems, we hope to come closer to solving a novel structure by solving each component. By generating necessary information for structure determination, this method provides the rst step toward designing a program to determine protein conformation automatically. The properties of a protein are largely determined by its three-dimensional structure Voet and Voet 1990]. This statement would seem to simplify the process of understanding proteins and

Scientists from The University of Manchester - part of the Manchester Cancer Research Centre - used a simple protein test that could prove more useful in predicting survival chances for patients with head-and-neck cancer compared to existing methods.. The team, funded by Cancer Research UK, believe the test could allow doctors to choose more appropriate and tailored treatments. Oral cancers, including the tongue and tonsils, are usually associated with tobacco and alcohol intake.. However, increasing numbers of cases are instead linked to human papillomaviruses (HPV) - which occur in younger people and have a different biology and a better prognosis. One approach for detecting HPV-associated oral cancer relies on finding HPV DNA in the tumour sample but these DNA-based tests may not accurately classify the tumour.. Another approach is to use a marker of HPV rather than testing for HPV DNA directly. The p16 protein usually disappears in tumours that are not caused by HPV infection and has been ...

Understanding the function of complex biomacromolecular assemblies requires detailed knowledge of the structure and dynamics of the individual molecular components as well as of their interactions within complexes. Fluorescence based methods offer the possibility to measure protein properties and interactions with a high sensitivity and selectivity. The advent of bright and more photo-stable fluorescent dyes and an enormous methodical and technical improvement of high resolution fluorescence spectroscopy and microscopy enabled studies on proteins even at a single molecule level. Due to the fact that single molecule techniques provide information on the distribution of parameters characterizing the biological macromolecule, these methods are often the approach of choice to clarify and better understand the structure and function of proteins.. ...

CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): Background The protein structure prediction problem is one of the most challenging problems in biological sciences. Many approaches have been proposed using database information and/or simplified protein models. The protein structure prediction problem can be cast in the form of an optimization problem. Notwithstanding its importance, the problem has very seldom been tackled by Constraint Logic Programming, a declarative programming paradigm suitable for solving combinatorial optimization problems. Results Constraint Logic Programming techniques have been applied to the protein structure prediction problem on the face-centered cube lattice model. Molecular dynamics techniques, endowed with the notion of constraint, have been also exploited. Even using a very simplified model, Constraint Logic Programming on the face-centered cube lattice model allowed us to obtain acceptable results for a few small proteins. As a test

To gain a better understanding of how proteins function a process known as protein structure prediction (PSP) is carried out. However, experimental PSP methods, such as X-ray crystallography and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), can be time-consuming and inaccurate. This has given rise to numerous computational PSP approaches to try and elicit a proteins three-dimensional conformation. A popular PSP search strategy is Genetic Algorithms (GA). GAs allow for a generic search approach, which can provide a generic improvement to alleviate the need to redefine the search strategies for separate sequences. Though GAs working principles are remarkable, a serious problem that is inherent in the GA search process is the growth of twins or identical chromosomes. Therefore, enhanced twin removal strategies are crucial for any GA search solving hard-optimisation problems like PSP. In this paper we explain our high-resolution GA feature-based resampling PSP approach and propose a twin removal strategy to ...
Tetracycline-responsive transcriptional activator driven by the liver-specific mouse major urinary protein promoter (MUP-tTA).. The E. Coli tetracycline operon regulatory system was used to generate a liver-specific transcription activation system that was inhibited by tetracycline. The transcription activator was a fused protein consisting of a tetracycline repressor gene (tetR) that was only active in the presence of tetracycline and a herpes simplex virus protein (VP-16) transcription activating domain (Tet-Off). Transcription was induced only in the absence of tetracycline (Tet-Off). A liver-specific promoter such as the mouse major urinary protein (MUP) promoter determined that the tetracycline-regulated transcriptional activator (tTA) would be expressed specifically in liver. To study the effect of the transcription activator on a target gene (for example, beta-galactosidase, LacZ) specifically in liver, MUP-tTA mice would be mated with transgenic mice in which the TAg Target gene was ...
The Protein Model Portal was developed as a module of the Protein Structure Initiative Knowledgebase (PSI KB). The goal of the Models Module was to develop a portal that gave access to the various models that can be leveraged from PSI targets and other experimental protein structures. The Protein Structure Initiative has been successful in determining the structures of many unique proteins in a high throughput manner. Still, the number of known protein sequences is much larger than the number of experimentally solved protein structures. Homology (or comparative) modeling methods make use of experimental protein structures to build models for evolutionary related proteins.

Computational protein structure prediction has made great progress in the last three decades [1, 2]. Protein inter-residue contact prediction is one of the problems being actively studied in the structure prediction community. Recent CASP (Critical Assessment of Techniques for Protein Structure Prediction) [3-7] events have demonstrated that a few true contacts, extracted from template-based models, can provide very important information for protein structure refinement, especially on targets without good templates in PDB [8]. For example, Misura et al. [9] have revised the widely-used ab initio folding program, Rosetta [10], by incorporating inter-residue contact information as a component of Rosettas energy function, and shown that the revised Rosetta exhibits not only a better computational efficiency, but also a better prediction accuracy. For some test proteins, the models built by this revised Rosetta are more accurate than their template-based counterparts, which is rarely seen before ...

Protein three-dimensional structure prediction directly from amino acid sequence is an important issue in bioinformatics. An intermediate approach to this problem is to predict the so-called one-dimensional structural properties of proteins. The solvent accessibility or accessible surface area (ASA) of an amino acid residue in a protein structure is one such property and the knowledge of this property can significantly enhance the overall structure and function prediction of proteins [1, 2]. Given an amino acid sequence, the goal of such prediction is to estimate the ASA of each residue making use of previously observed ASA values taken from known protein structures. The knowledge from previously observed structures is modeled using machine learning and other methods [3-16]. Various methods of predicting ASA from sequence or sequence-derived evolutionary information have been developed such as neural networks [8-12], Bayesian analysis [13], information theory [14, 15], multiple linear ...

The structure of a protein ultimately determines its function; therefore, knowledge of three-dimensional structure is essential for understanding its function and mechanism of action. The two most common methods for determining protein structure are x-ray crystallography and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. These methods are quite successful but can be very time-intensive and costly. An alternative method is protein structure prediction, where structure is computationally predicted from amino acid sequence. As opposed to x-ray crystallography and NMR spectroscopy, protein structure prediction is not encumbered by potential experimental problems. In this research, we attempted to determine if certain protein structure features, known as tertiary contacts, can improve the prediction of protein three-dimensional structure. By calculating and analyzing sequence homology and related values, it was shown that tertiary contacts, which typically are long-range amino acid interactions

Successful protein structure prediction requires accurate low-resolution scoring functions so that protein main chain conformations that are close to the native can be identified. Once that is accomplished, a more detailed and time-consuming treatment to produce all-atom models can be undertaken. The earliest low-resolution scoring used simple distance-based contact potentials, but more recently, the relative orientations of interacting amino acids have been taken into account to improve performance. We developed a new knowledge-based scoring function, LoCo, that locates the interaction partners of each individual residue within a local coordinate system based only on the position of its main chain N, Cα and C atoms. LoCo was trained on a large set of experimentally determined structures and optimized using standard sets of modeled structures, or decoys. No structure used to train or optimize the function was included among those used to test it. When tested against 29 other published main chain
Scoring functions, such as molecular mechanic forcefields and statistical potentials are fundamentally important tools in protein structure modeling and quality assessment. The performances of a number of publicly available scoring functions are compared with a statistical rigor, with an emphasis on knowledge-based potentials. We explored the effect on accuracy of alternative choices for representing interaction center types and other features of scoring functions, such as using information on solvent accessibility, on torsion angles, accounting for secondary structure preferences and side chain orientation. Partially based on the observations made, we present a novel residue based statistical potential, which employs a shuffled reference state definition and takes into account the mutual orientation of residue side chains. Atom- and residue-level statistical potentials and Linux executables to calculate the energy of a given protein proposed in this work can be downloaded from http

Protein-ligand binding site prediction from a 3D protein structure plays a pivotal role in rational drug design and can be helpful in drug side-effects prediction or elucidation of protein function. Embedded within the binding site detection problem is the problem of pocket ranking - how to score and sort candidate pockets so that the best scored predictions correspond to true ligand binding sites. Although there exist multiple pocket detection algorithms, they mostly employ a fairly simple ranking function leading to sub-optimal prediction results. We have developed a new pocket scoring approach (named PRANK) that prioritizes putative pockets according to their probability to bind a ligand. The method first carefully selects pocket points and labels them by physico-chemical characteristics of their local neighborhood. Random Forests classifier is subsequently applied to assign a ligandability score to each of the selected pocket point. The ligandability scores are finally merged into the resulting

The protein structure prediction (PSP) problem is concerned with the prediction of native tertiary structure of a protein given its sequence of amino acids. Ab-initio approach to PSP problem assumes that native conformation of protein corresponds to the global minimum free energy state. The potential energy used to evaluate the conformation of a protein is based on different interaction energies. In the present work, potential energy function Chemistry at HARvard Macromolecular Mechanics (CHARMM) has been used to qualitatively assess the conformations. Backbone and side-chain torsion angles are used to represent each conformation. In the present thesis, we have used Bacterial Foraging Optimization Algorithm as a search procedure for exploring the conformational space of the PSP problem. Results obtained indicate that this is another promising way of finding the stable structure of protein ...
Membrane protein characterization at atomic resolution is always a big challenge in development of membrane protein-based antibody as well as small molecule drugs. The development of these membrane protein related antibodies and vaccines require high resolution structural information of target protein. Thus membrane protein characterization plays a vital role in drug discovery, propelling the demand for membrane protein characterization Service across the world. In order to derive atomic models for membrane proteins composing over 50% of overall drug targets, solution-state NMR and X-ray crystallography have been widely used. Membrane protein characterization offer high benefits. Both the solution-state NMR and X-ray crystallography methods have their own drawbacks. However, there exists another method called transmission electron microscopy that is gaining ever-increasing popularity in membrane protein characterization at atomic resolution. Thus reported to be one of the best membrane protein ...

BACKGROUND: Protein fold recognition usually relies on a statistical model of each fold; each model is constructed from an ensemble of natural sequences belonging to that fold. A complementary strategy may be to employ sequence ensembles produced by computational protein design. Designed sequences can be more diverse than natural sequences, possibly avoiding some limitations of experimental databases. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: WE EXPLORE THIS STRATEGY FOR FOUR SCOP FAMILIES: Small Kunitz-type inhibitors (SKIs), Interleukin-8 chemokines, PDZ domains, and large Caspase catalytic subunits, represented by 43 structures. An automated procedure is used to redesign the 43 proteins. We use the experimental backbones as fixed templates in the folded state and a molecular mechanics model to compute the interaction energies between sidechain and backbone groups. Calculations are done with the [email protected] volunteer computing platform. A heuristic algorithm is used to scan the sequence and conformational
The solvent accessibility of a residue in a protein is a value that represents the solvent exposed surface area of this residue. It is crucial for understanding protein structure and function. As a result of the completion of whole-genome sequencing projects, the sequence-structure gap is rapidly increasing. Importantly, the knowledge of protein structures is a foundation for understanding the mechanism of diseases of living organisms and facilitating discovery of new drugs. The most reliable methods for identification of protein structure are X-ray crystallography techniques, but they are expensive and time-consuming. This leads to a central, yet unsolved study of protein structure prediction in bioinformatics, especially for sequences which do not have a significant sequence similarity with known structures [1]. To predict protein structure, the role of solvent accessibility has been extensively investigated as it is related to the spatial arrangement and packing of amino acids during the ...
DNASTAR NovaFold is protein structure prediction software that is based on I-Tasser, the award-winning software package developed by Prof. Yang Zhangs laboratory at the University of Michigan. NovaFold utilizes the I-Tasser algorithms developed by Prof. Zhang that combine threading and ab initio folding technologies to build accurate, full 3D atomic models of proteins with previously unknown structures.
We introduce a new type of knowledge-based potentials for protein structure prediction, called evolutionary potentials, which are derived using a single experimental protein structure and all three-dimensional models of its homologous sequences. The new potentials have been benchmarked against other knowledge-based potentials, resulting in a significant increase in accuracy for model assessment. In contrast to standard knowledge-based potentials, we propose that evolutionary potentials capture key determinants of thermodynamic stability and specific sequence constraints required for fast folding.

Protein interaction networks have become a tool to study biological processes, either for predicting molecular functions or for designing proper new drugs to regulate the main biological interactions. Furthermore, such networks are known to be organized in sub-networks of proteins contributing to the same cellular function. However, the protein function prediction is not accurate and each protein has traditionally been assigned to only one function by the network formalism. By considering the network of the physical interactions between proteins of the yeast together with a manual and single functional classification scheme, we introduce a method able to reveal important information on protein function, at both micro- and macro-scale. In particular, the inspection of the properties of oscillatory dynamics on top of the protein interaction network leads to the identification of misclassification problems in protein function assignments, as well as to unveil correct identification of protein functions.

Background: Techniques for inferring the functions of the protein by comparing their shape similarity have been receiving a lot of attention. Proteins are functional units and their shape flexibility occupies an essential role in various biological processes. Several shape descriptors have demonstrated the capability of protein shape comparison by treating them as rigid bodies. But this may give rise to an incorrect comparison of flexible protein shapes. Results: We introduce an efficient approach for comparing flexible protein shapes by adapting a local diameter (LD) descriptor. The LD descriptor, developed recently to handle skeleton based shape deformations [1], is adapted in this work to capture the invariant properties of shape deformations caused by the motion of the protein backbone. Every sampled point on the protein surface is assigned a value measuring the diameter of the 3D shape in the neighborhood of that point. The LD descriptor is built in the form of a one dimensional histogram ...
Our focus is the characterization of protein structure, dynamics and interactions, using both solution and solid-state NMR spectroscopy. In the past, we have committed ourselves to the development of innovative NMR methodology as well as application of new and established methods to better understand the behavior of various proteins. In particular, we have a major record in proton-detected solid-state NMR, which is currently transforming into a new state of the art in solid-state NMR. Our interests nowadays are structure and dynamics playing a role for enzymatic function and for protein-small molecule interactions. Our lab has its own new 800 and 700 MHz magnets used for both, solids and solution.

Chloride channel accessory 1 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the CLCA1 gene. This gene encodes a member of the calcium sensitive chloride conductance protein family. To date, all members of this gene family map to the same region on chromosome 1p31-p22 and share a high degree of homology in size, sequence, and predicted structure, but differ significantly in their tissue distributions. The encoded protein is expressed as a precursor protein that is processed into two cell-surface-associated subunits, although the site at which the precursor is cleaved has not been precisely determined. The encoded protein may be involved in mediating calcium-activated chloride conductance in the intestine. Protein structure prediction methods suggest the N-terminal region of CLCA1 protein is a zinc metalloprotease.

Kernel regression or classification (also referred to as weighted $\epsilon$-NN methods in Machine Learning) are appealing for their simplicity and therefore ubiquitous in data analysis. However, practical implementations of kernel regression or classification consist of quantizing or sub- sampling data for improving time efficiency, often at the cost of prediction quality. While such tradeoffs are necessary in practice, their statistical implications are generally not well understood, hence practical implementations come with few performance guarantees. In particular, it is unclear whether it is possible to maintain the statistical accuracy of kernel prediction---crucial in some applications---while improving prediction time.. The present work provides guiding principles for combining kernel prediction with data- quantization so as to guarantee good tradeoffs between prediction time and accuracy, and in particular so as to approximately maintain the good accuracy of vanilla kernel ...

Protein domains are compact regions of a proteins structure that often convey some distinct function. Domain architecture, or order of domains in a protein, is frequently considered as a fundamental level of protein functional complexity [1]. The majority of the protein repertoire is composed of multidomain proteins; two-thirds of the proteins in prokaryotes and about four-fifths eukaryotic ones have two or more domains [2]. Moreover, an organisms complexity relates much better to the number of distinct domain architectures [3] and expansion in particular domain families [4] than to the number of genes in the organism. The prevalence of proteins with more than two domains and the recurrent appearance of the same domain in non-homologues proteins show that functional domains are reused when creating new proteins. Because of this, domains have been likened to Lego bricks that can be recombined in various ways to build proteins with completely new functions [5]. Hence, one way to study evolution ...

Histidine-rich glycoprotein (HRG)is a glycoprotein that in humans is encoded by the HRG gene. The HRG protein is produced in the liver, and it could also be synthesized by monocytes, macrophages, and megakaryocytes. It possesses a multi-domain structure, which makes it capable of binding to numerous ligands and modulating various biological processes including immunity, vascularization and coagulation. The HRG gene lies on location of 3q27 on the chromosome 3, spans approximately 11kb, and consist of 7 exons. Two common isoforms of the HRG gene have been found in humans. These isoforms exist due to a polymorphism occurring in exon 5. HRG is a glycoprotein of 70-75kDa present at a relatively high concentration in the plasma of vertebrates. The primary structure of human HRG is predicted to be a 507 amino acid multidomain polypeptide consisting of two cystatin-like regions at the N-terminus, a histidine-rich region (HRR) flanked by proline-rich regions (PRR), and a C-terminal domain. HRG has an ...
As a remarkable pioneer in the field of studying protein-protein interactions (PPIs), Profacgen provides a novel technique, proximity-dependent biotin identification (BioID), which has been used for identification of proteins in the close vicinity of a protein of interest in living cells.. The introduction of BioID. Determining protein partners is an essential step toward understanding protein function and identifying relevant biological pathways. However, many conventional methods for investigating protein-protein interactions can be merely used in vitro, which may not reflect the actual interaction in native environments, or often encounter the loss of candidate proteins because of transient or weak protein interactions or protein insolubility.. BioID has emerged as a new tool based on enzyme-catalyzed proximity labeling (PL), to provide the possibility to study the spatial and interaction characteristics of proteins in living cells (Roux et al., 2012). Its main principle is that utilize the ...

Motivation:In silico methods are being widely used for identifying substrates for various kinases and deciphering cell signaling networks. However, most of the available phosphorylation site prediction methods use motifs or profiles derived from a known data set of kinase substrates and hence, their applicability is limited to only those kinase families for which experimental substrate data is available. This prompted us to develop a novel multi-scale structure-based approach which does not require training using experimental substrate data.. Results:In this work, for the first time, we have used residue-based statistical pair potentials for scoring the binding energy of various substrate peptides in complex with kinases. Extensive benchmarking on Phospho.ELM data set indicate that our method outperforms other structure-based methods and has a prediction accuracy comparable to available sequence-based methods. We also demonstrate that the rank of the true substrate can be further improved, if ...

Protein microarrays provide an efficient method to recognize and quantify protein-protein connections in great throughput. will end up being described at length in the protocols beneath.

Many high-throughput methods have got alarmingly high prices of fake positives and fake negatives22-25 restricting their effectiveness in generating natural hypotheses. Second identifying binding affinities really helps to prioritize which connections will end up being biologically relevant.

Furthermore to offering binding affinities proteins microarrays also enable someone to assess how well a ligand is normally acknowledged by every person in a proteins family. As such they offer details on binding ...
Understanding the 3D molecular structure of proteins is of enormous importance in science, medicine and biotechnology. When determining the 3D structure of a protein using biophysical methods, it is often assumed that a protein molecule has a single, specific shape. Yet in reality, many proteins adopt a number of radically different conformations, that can interchange dynamically. Such a set of conformations is called an ensemble. It is precisely the ensemble aspect of protein structure that plays a major role in important diseases such as Parkinsons, type II diabetes or Alzheimers. Currently, there are few methods that can handle such ensembles, and the available methods are suboptimal, ad hoc and heuristic.. We have developed a statistically rigorous and computationally efficient method to determine the structure of protein ensembles (Olsson et al., J. Magn. Reson., 2010; Olsson et al., PLoS ONE, 2013), based on previous methods developed at the Bioinformatics center, targeting both NMR and ...
The study of protein evolution is complicated by the vast size of protein sequence space, the huge number of possible protein folds, and the extraordinary complexity of the causal relationships between protein sequence, structure, and function. Much simpler model constructs may therefore provide an attractive complement to experimental studies in this area. Lattice models, which have long been useful in studies of protein folding, have found increasing use here. However, while these models incorporate actual sequences and structures (albeit non-biological ones), they incorporate no actual functions-relying instead on largely arbitrary structural criteria as a proxy for function. In view of the central importance of function to evolution, and the impossibility of incorporating real functional constraints without real function, it is important that protein-like models be developed around real structure-function relationships. Here we describe such a model and introduce open-source software that implements

Constraints and Molecular Biology: Constraint Programming techniques can be efficiently used for predicting structure of a protein which is considered one of the most important problem in Computational Biology. The protein structure prediction problem has effectively been transformed to a constraint minimization problem with finite domain and Boolean variables. The Oz language was then used to implement the constraint problem. Certain variables have been defined for the entire constraint problem of predicting the protein structure. Later constraint optimization has been used to minimize the variable surface. A perfect conformation was found on all possible sequences in finding the sequence length and also the optimal surface. Hence constraint techniques can be effectively applied to solving problems in computational biology.. Read More ...
