Default Maximizing accuracy of RNA structure in refinement against residual dipolar couplings

Maximizing accuracy of RNA structure in refinement against residual dipolar couplings

Abstract

Structural information about ribonucleic acid (RNA) is lagging behind that of proteins, in part due to its high charge and conformational variability. Molecular dynamics (MD) has played an important role in describing RNA structure, complementing information from both nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), or X-ray crystallography. We examine the impact of the choice of the empirical force field for RNA structure refinement using cross-validation against residual dipolar couplings (RDCs) as structural accuracy reporter. Four force fields, representing both the state-of-the art in RNA simulation and the most popular selections in NMR structure determination, are compared for a prototypical A-RNA helix. RNA structural accuracy is also evaluated as a function of both density and nature of input NMR data including RDCs, anisotropic chemical shifts, and distance restraints. Our results show a complex interplay between the experimental restraints and the force fields indicating two best-performing choices: high-fidelity refinement in explicit solvent, and the conformational database-derived potentials. Accuracy of RNA models closely tracks the density of 1-bond Câ??H RDCs, with other data types having beneficial, but smaller effects. At lower RDC density, or when refining against NOEs only, the two selected force fields are capable of accurately describing RNA helices with little or no experimental RDC data, making them available for the higher order structure assembly or better quantification of the intramolecular dynamics. Unrestrained simulations of simple RNA motifs with state-of-the art MD force fields appear to capture the flexibility inherent in nucleic acids while also maintaining a good agreement with the experimental observables.

Improvements to REDCRAFT: a software tool for simultaneous characterization of protein backbone structure and dynamics from residual dipolar couplings
Improvements to REDCRAFT: a software tool for simultaneous characterization of protein backbone structure and dynamics from residual dipolar couplings Abstract Within the past two decades, there has been an increase in the acquisition of residual dipolar couplings (RDC) for investigations of biomolecular structures. Their use however is still not as widely adopted as the traditional methods of structure determination by NMR, despite their potential for extending the limits in studies that examine both the structure and dynamics of biomolecules. This...

Very large residual dipolar couplings from deuterated ubiquitin
Very large residual dipolar couplings from deuterated ubiquitin Abstract Main-chain 1HNâ??15N residual dipolar couplings (RDCs) ranging from approximately â??200 to 200 Hz have been measured for ubiquitin under strong alignment conditions in Pf1 phage. This represents a ten-fold increase in the degree of alignment over the typical weakly aligned samples. The measurements are made possible by extensive proton-dilution of the sample, achieved by deuteration of the protein with partial back-substitution of labile protons from 25 % H2O / 75 % D2O buffer. The spectral quality is further...

Determination of structural fluctuations of proteins from structure-based calculations of residual dipolar couplings
Determination of structural fluctuations of proteins from structure-based calculations of residual dipolar couplings Abstract Residual dipolar couplings (RDCs) have the potential of providing detailed information about the conformational fluctuations of proteins. It is very challenging, however, to extract such information because of the complex relationship between RDCs and protein structures. A promising approach to decode this relationship involves structure-based calculations of the alignment tensors of protein conformations. By implementing this strategy to generate structural...

Residual dipolar couplings: are multiple independent alignments always possible?
Residual dipolar couplings: are multiple independent alignments always possible? Abstract RDCs for the 14 kDa protein hen egg-white lysozyme (HEWL) have been measured in eight different alignment media. The elongated shape and strongly positively charged surface of HEWL appear to limit the protein to four main alignment orientations. Furthermore, low levels of alignment and the proteinâ??s interaction with some alignment media increases the experimental error. Together with heterogeneity across the alignment media arising from constraints on temperature, pH and ionic strength for some...
