Modified residues

Non-natural amino-acids


This example was provided by Hélène Déméné and Gaetan Bellot, from Centre de Biochimie Structurale (Montpellier, France). The full example is described in the Tutorials folder, and only the data related to the chemical modifications are presented in this page.

The example presents the study of a cyclic peptide interacting with G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), and more details about the corresponding research can be found on the page of Hélène Déméne.

In order to run a calculation on a polypeptide including modified amino-acids, several files have to be modified, in the CNS set of files provided with ARIA as well as in the ARIA python files. See the page Non-standard residue definitions for more details.

The peptide sequence, shown below, contains 4 modified amino-acids: GLX (chiral D Glutamine), NLE (Norleucine), GLI (Glycine before cyclisation) and CYC (cyclisated Cysteine).

The project directory tree is the same than those already described in the corresponding page.

The project xml file cooresponding to the run with unatural amino-acids is given below. A modification of the simulated annealing protocol is that the high temperatures were divided by two, in order to avoid unstabilities due to the cyclization restraint.
