Default RCI - Random Coil Index for predicting protein flexibility from chemical shifts

RCI website

RCI method predicts protein flexibility by calculating the Random Coil Index from backbone chemical shifts and predicting values of model-free order parameters as well as per-residue RMSF of NMR and MD ensembles from the Random Coil Index.

The key advantages of this protocol over existing methods of studying protein flexibility are (i) it does not require prior knowledge of a protein's tertiary structure, (ii) it is not sensitive to the protein's overall tumbling and (iii) it does not require additional NMR measurements beyond the standard experiments for backbone assignments.

The application of secondary chemical shifts to characterize protein flexibility is based on an assumption that the close proximity of chemical shifts to random coil values is a manifestation of increased protein mobility, while significant differences from random coil values is an indication of a relatively rigid structure.

Even though chemical shifts of rigid residues may adopt random coil values due to specific values of torsion angles, combining the chemical shifts from multiple nuclei into a single parameter allows one to decrease the influence of these random coil false positives. The improved performance originates from the different probabilities of random coil chemical shifts from different nuclei being found among amino acid residues in flexible regions versus rigid regions. Typically, residues in rigid helices or rigid beta-strands are less likely to have more than one random coil chemical shift among their backbone shifts than residues in mobile regions.

The actual calculation of the RCI involves several additional steps including the smoothing of secondary shifts over several adjacent residues, the use of neighboring residue corrections, chemical shift re-referencing, gap filling, chemical shift scaling and numeric adjustments to prevent divide-by-zero problems. 13C, 15 N and 1H secondary chemical shifts are then scaled to account for the characteristic resonance frequencies of these nuclei and to provide numeric consistency among different parts of the protocol. Once these scaling corrections have been done, the RCI is calculated. The ‘‘end-effect correction’’ can also be applied at this point. The last step of the protocol involves smoothing the initial set of RCI values by three-point averaging.

Sequence correction of random coil chemical shifts: correlation between neighbor correction factors and changes in the Ramachandran distribution
Sequence correction of random coil chemical shifts: correlation between neighbor correction factors and changes in the Ramachandran distribution Abstract Random coil chemical shifts are necessary for secondary chemical shift analysis, which is the main NMR method for identification of secondary structure in proteins. One of the largest challenges in the determination of random coil chemical shifts is accounting for the effect of neighboring residues. The contributions from the neighboring residues are typically removed by using neighbor correction factors determined based on each...

Random coil chemical shift for intrinsically disordered proteins: effects of temperature and pH
Random coil chemical shift for intrinsically disordered proteins: effects of temperature and pH Abstract Secondary chemical shift analysis is the main NMR method for detection of transiently formed secondary structure in intrinsically disordered proteins. The quality of the secondary chemical shifts is dependent on an appropriate choice of random coil chemical shifts. We report random coil chemical shifts and sequence correction factors determined for a GGXGG peptide series following the approach of Schwarzinger et al. (J Am Chem Soc 123(13):2970â??2978, 2001). The chemical shifts are...

Application of the random coil index to studying protein flexibility Mark V. Berjanskii and David S. Wishart Journal of Biomolecular NMR; 2008; 40(1); pp 31-48 Abstract: Protein flexibility lies at the heart of many protein–ligand binding events and enzymatic activities. However, the experimental measurement of protein motions is often difficult, tedious and error-prone. As a result, there is a considerable interest in developing simpler and faster ways of quantifying protein flexibility. Recently, we described a method, called Random Coil Index (RCI), which appears to be able to...
