Protein-RNA complexes provide a wide range of essential functions in the cell. Their atomic experimental structure solving, despite essential to the understanding of these functions, is often difficult and expensive. Docking approaches that have been developed for proteins are often challenging to adapt for RNA because of its inherent flexibility and the structural data available being relatively scarce. In this study we adapted the RosettaDock protocol for protein-RNA complexes both at the… Expand

Figures and Topics from this paper

Structural and energy determinants in protein-RNA docking.
TLDR
This work tested the predictive value of a variety of knowledge-based and energetic scoring functions on a recently published protein-RNA docking benchmark and developed a scoring function able to efficiently discriminate docking decoys, which showed an interesting dependence of the predictive rates on the flexibility of the protein molecule. Expand
Protein-ensemble-RNA docking by efficient consideration of protein flexibility through homology models
TLDR
A homology model-based ensemble docking approach to explicitly consider the protein flexibility in protein-RNA docking through an ensemble of multiple protein structures, which is referred to as MPRDock and will have a general application in molecular docking for other interactions. Expand
Template-Based Modeling of Protein-RNA Interactions
TLDR
Structural alignment is better than sequence alignment in identifying good templates, suitable for generating protein-RNA complexes close to the native structure, and outperforms free docking, successfully predicting complexes where the free docking fails, including cases of significant conformational change upon binding. Expand
Sampling native-like structures of RNA-protein complexes through Rosetta folding and docking
TLDR
A Rosetta method called RNP-denovo is described to simultaneously fold and dock RNA to a protein surface to open a route to computationally modeling global folds of RNA-protein complexes from low-resolution data. Expand
Sampling Native-like Structures of RNA-Protein Complexes through Rosetta Folding and Docking.
TLDR
RNP-denovo, a Rosetta method to simultaneously fold-and-dock RNA to a protein surface, revisited three past blind modeling challenges involving the spliceosome, telomerase, and a methyltransferase-ribosomal RNA complex in which previous methods gave poor results and gave models with significantly improved accuracy.

Bioinformatics Tools and Benchmarks for Computational Docking and 3D Structure Prediction of RNA-Protein Complexes
TLDR
Currently available methods for macromolecular docking and for scoring 3D structural models of RNP complexes in particular are discussed and benchmarks that have been developed to assess the accuracy of these methods are reviewed. Expand
P3DOCK: a protein-RNA docking webserver based on template-based and template-free docking
TLDR
This paper compares the difference between the free docking and the template-based algorithm and shows the complementarity of these two methods, and shows that P3DOCK is better than those two non-hybrid docking algorithms. Expand
Improved Accuracy in RNA-Protein Rigid Body Docking by Incorporating Force Field for Molecular Dynamics Simulation into the Scoring Function.
TLDR
This study modeled the physicochemical information about RNA by force fields such as AMBER and CHARMM and found that the electrostatic interaction and the representation of shape complementary between protein and RNA plays the important roles for accurate prediction of the native structures of RNA-protein complexes.

A non‐redundant protein–RNA docking benchmark version 2.0
TLDR
An updated version of the protein–RNA docking benchmark is presented, which should provide the docking community with more test cases for evaluating rigid‐body as well as flexible docking algorithms and facilitate the development of new algorithms that require large number of training set. Expand
Integrative Structural Biology of Protein-RNA Complexes.

Structural Prediction of Protein-RNA Interaction by Computational Docking with Propensity-Based Statistical Potentials
TLDR
This new protein-RNA docking protocol permits a fast scoring of rigid-body docking poses in order to select a small number of docking orientations, which can be later evaluated with more sophisticated energy-based scoring functions. Expand
