A major challenge of computational protein design is the creation of novel proteins with arbitrarily chosen three-dimensional structures. Here, we used a general computational strategy that iterates between sequence design and structure prediction to design a 93-residue α/β protein called Top7 with a novel sequence and topology. Top7 was found experimentally to be folded and extremely stable, and the x-ray crystal structure of Top7 is similar (root mean square deviation equals 1.2 angstroms) to… Expand

Paper Mentions

Computer-based design of novel protein structures.
TLDR
A variety of methods for generating protein-like scaffolds and for optimizing the protein backbone in conjunction with the amino acid sequence have been developed and have been used to design proteins from scratch and to explore sequence space for naturally occurring protein folds. Expand
Prediction of Stable Globular Proteins Using Negative Design with Non-native Backbone Ensembles.
TLDR
A computational framework based on negative multistate design in which sequence energy is evaluated in the context of both native and non-native backbone ensembles is developed, showing a very strong correlation between predicted and experimentally determined stabilities. Expand
Advances in design of protein folds and assemblies.
TLDR
This review focuses on design of single chain and multi polypeptide chain assemblies of defined size and composition and the two main approaches are genetic fusion of interacting modules and engineering of novel protein-protein interfaces. Expand
Using AlphaFold for Rapid and Accurate Fixed Backbone Protein Design
TLDR
A rapid and effective approach for fixed backbone computational protein design, leveraging the predictive power of AlphaFold and supported by the structure predictions of other supervised methods as well as ab initio folding. Expand
High-resolution structural validation of the computational redesign of human U1A protein.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the redesigned protein reproduces the target structure to within the uncertainty of the NMR coordinates, even as 65 out of 96 amino acids were simultaneously changed by purely computational methods. Expand
Computational protein design and discovery

This review discusses some of the major developments in computational protein design, focusing on common inputs to the calculation and several often used search methods. Expand
Computational design of structured loops for new protein functions
TLDR
This work will describe the progress that has been made on this problem and discuss how recent advances in the field of loop structure prediction can be harnessed and applied to the inverse problem of computational loop design. Expand
TEN Evolution-Based Design of Proteins
Statistical analysis of protein sequences indicates an architecture for natural proteins in which amino acids are engaged in a sparse, hierarchical pattern of interactions in the tertiary structure.Expand
Evolution-based design of proteins.
TLDR
This work describes an approach for systematically testing the design principle for natural-like proteins by computational design of synthetic sequences that gradually add or remove constraints along the hierarchy of interacting residues and experimental testing of the designed sequences for folding and biochemical function.

Protein Sequence Design with a Learned Potential
TLDR
This work investigates the capability of a deep neural network model to automate design of sequences onto protein backbones, having learned directly from crystal structure data and without any human-specified priors. Expand

De novo design of foldable proteins with smooth folding funnel: automated negative design and experimental verification.
TLDR
The design principle is different from the conventional approach, in that instead of optimizing interactions within the target structure, the global shape of the protein folding funnel is designed, which includes automated implementation of negative design by explicitly requiring higher free energy of the denatured state.

De novo design of the hydrophobic cores of proteins
TLDR
A novel computational approach for the de novo design of hydrophobic cores using a genetic algorithm to globally optimize for a low energy core sequence and structure, using the custom rotamer library as input. Expand
De novo protein design: fully automated sequence selection.
TLDR
The first fully automated design and experimental validation of a novel sequence for an entire protein is described, and a BLAST search shows that the designed sequence, full sequence design 1 (FSD-1), has very low identity to any known protein sequence. Expand
Accurate computer-based design of a new backbone conformation in the second turn of protein L.
TLDR
The rational design of loops and turns is a key step towards creating proteins with new functions and in contrast to wild-type protein L the second beta-turn appears to be formed at the rate limiting step in folding. Expand
High-resolution protein design with backbone freedom.
TLDR
The de novo design of a family of alpha-helical bundle proteins with a right-handed superhelical twist is described, where the overall protein fold was specified by hydrophobic-polar residue patterning, whereas the bundle oligomerization state, detailed main-chain conformation, and interior side-chain rotamers were engineered by computational enumerations of packing in alternate backbone structures.

Overall, the analysis suggests that statistical profile scores of designed sequences are a novel and valuable figure of merit for assessing and improving protein design algorithms. Expand

A fully automated protein design strategy that works on the entire sequence of the protein and uses a full atom representation, and it is shown that each additional term of the energy function improves the performance of the design procedure. Expand
Thoroughly sampling sequence space: Large‐scale protein design of structural ensembles
TLDR
The results of a broad exploration of sequence space, with backbone flexibility, through a novel approach: large‐scale protein design to structural ensembles suggest that the diversity of designed sequences is primarily determined by a structure's overall fold, and that the designability principle postulated from studies of simple models holds in real proteins.

TLDR
This result demonstrates that backbone flexibility can be combined explicitly with amino acid side‐chain selection and that the selection algorithm is sufficiently robust to tolerate perturbations as large as 15% of Gβ1's native supersecondary structure parameter values. Expand
