Molecular flexibility in computational protein design: an algorithmic perspective

Abstract

Computational protein design (CPD) is a powerful technique for engineering new proteins, with both great fundamental implications and diverse practical interests. However, the approximations usually made for computational eciency, using a single fixed backbone and a discrete set of side-chain rotamers, tend to produce rigid and hyper-stable folds that may lack functionality. These approximations contrast with the demonstrated importance of molecular flexibility and motions in a wide range of protein functions. The integration of backbone flexibility and multiple conformational states in CPD, in order to relieve the inaccuracies resulting from these simplifications and to improve design reliability, are attracting increased attention. However, the greatly increased search space that needs to be explored in these extensions defines extremely challenging computational problems. In this review, we outline the principles of CPD and discuss recent e↵ort in algorithmic developments for incorporating molecular flexibility in the design process.
