Homology modeling Sequences that have similar sequence have similar structure . Therefore we can model a sequence of unknown structure based on a homolog of known structure. Differences between homolog functions can be inferred. 2 also called “comparative modeling” Percent sequence identity 5% 25% 50% 90% trivial useful difficult forget it.

Why do homology modeling? Predict functional differences. Predict binding sites. Predict mutational effects. Predict drug interactions. Design all of the above. 3 It’s easier than growing crystals. We have ~50K crystal structures, but millions of sequences.

What an alignment means to a biologist ACDEFG. ...HIKLMNPQRSTVWY ||:|| || :| | ||||: .CDDFGACDGHIYIM. .QQSTVWF target template Biologist infers. .. The gene was extended by one residue at the N-terminus. The Phe is conserved. Four residue deletion occurred between G to H. A non-similar mutation Y->K occurred. . A two-residue insertion occurred between M and Q . A similar mutation F->Y occurred. . Given this alignment. .. Aligned positions share a common ancestral position.

Add Ala to the N-terminal Cys using energy minimization. Keep the conserved Phe sidechain and backbone. Cut out the four residue insertion and connect G to H. Switch non-similar sidechains Y->K. Possibly move backbone. Possibly pick another alignment . Cut at M-Q, insert two residues, Asn-Pro . Switch similar sidechains F->Y. Keep backbone fixed . Given this alignment. ..

In what order do I model? Modeling philosophy: MAXIMIZE USE OF THE INFORMATION IN THE TEMPLATE This means. .. •Assign coordinates based on homology first. Identity first, then similarity . •Then make deletions . •Then add insertions . •Then build extensions . confidence HIGH LOW
