A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

About

There are different manners to assist computational generation of tridimensional protein models by providing additional structural data, and one specific kind of experiment that can be drawn in order to obtain this kind of information is cross-linking mass spectrometry. This technique – initially developed to assess protein complexes – provides information on the distance of residues which are solvent accessible and thus linked depending on their accessibility, local reactivity, and pairwise distances along the protein surface. Applying this technique to the modeling of tertiary structures depends on overcoming the fact that it generates a high amount of data, a low portion of which truly represents native constraints, and therefore, adequate data selection becomes a challenge on such a problem. In the present work, we introduce BISCORE, a constraint score based on classical psychometrics performance indicators, which, over successive iteration rounds, allows for recovery of constraints correlated with selected reference models, incrementally introducing modeling biases which will drive the sampled space towards those models, providing an overall increase on modeling quality. The modeling protocol involves a new software for the evaluation of structural constraints in protein models (TopoLink) and a new force-field for constraint representation (XLFF). We show that, given a consistent model quality assessment method, recovered constraints will progress towards native constraints, and overall modeling will progress towards native structure. We were able to increase the number of native-similar models generated by more than 50-fold when compared to the unconstrained modeling, greatly surpassing the performance of previously employed selection methods, while also substantially increasing the quality of the best generated models. The methods are implemented for general use and available at http://m3g.iqm.unicamp.br/topolink.
