# Structural Data¶

The StructureDB serves as a container for structural backbone and sequence data. Custom accessor objects can be implemented that relate arbitrary features to structural data. Examples provided by ProMod3 include accession using matching stem geometry (see: FragDB) or sequence features (see: Fragger). Besides backbone and sequence data, derived features can optionally be stored. E.g. sequence profiles or secondary structure information. Optional data includes:

• The phi/psi dihedral angles
• The secondary structure state as defined by dssp
• The solvent accessibility in square Angstrom
• The amino acid frequencies as given by an input sequence profile
• The residue depth - The residue depth is defined as the minimum distance of a residue towards any of the exposed residues. Distances are calculated using CB positions (artificially constructed in case of glycine) and exposed is defined as: relative solvent accessibility > 25% and at least one atom being exposed to the OUTER surface. To determine whether an atom is part of that outer surface, the full structure is placed into a 3D grid and a flood fill algorithm is used to determine the atoms of interest. Internal cavities are excluded by using this approach. This is a simplified version of the residue depth as discussed in [chakravarty1999] and gets directly calculated when structural information is added to the StructureDB.
• The amino acid frequency derived from structural alignments as described in [zhou2005] - Since the calculation of such a profile already requires a StructureDB, we end up in a hen and egg problem here... When adding structural information to the StructureDB, the according memory gets just allocated and set to zero. The usage of this information is therefore only meaningful if you calculate these profiles and manually set them (or load the provided default database).

## Defining Chains and Fragments¶

class promod3.loop.CoordInfo

The CoordInfo gets automatically generated when new chains are added to a StructureDB. It contains internal information of how a connected stretch of residues is stored in the database.

id

An id string specified when adding the corresponding stretch to the structure db

chain_name

A chain name string specified when adding the corresponding stretch to the structure db

offset

All residues of the added stretch are stored in a linear memory layout. The offset parameter tells us where it exactly starts in the global data structure. (int)

size

The number of residues in that stretch (int)

start_resnum

Residue number of first residue in the added stretch. The residue number is relative to the SEQRES provided in the input profile when adding the stuff to the structure db. (int)

shift

Translation from original coordinates that has been applied before storing structural information in db. (ost.geom.Vec3)

class promod3.loop.FragmentInfo(chain_index, offset, length)

The FragmentInfo defines any fragment in the StructureDB. If you implement your own accessor object, thats the information you want to store.

Parameters: chain_index – Fills chain_index offset – Fills offset length – Fills length
chain_index

The index of the chain (defined by CoordInfo) in the StructureDB this particle belongs to. (int)

offset

Index of residue in chain the fragment starts. (0-based, int)

length

Length of the fragment (int)

## The Structure Database¶

The following code example demonstrates how to create a structural database and fill it with content.

from promod3 import loop
from ost import io, seq
import os

# StructureDB where all data get extracted
structure_db_one = loop.StructureDB(loop.StructureDBDataType.All)

# StructureDB where we only have the default data
# (positions and sequence) plus residue depths and dihedrals.
# In order to pass the required flags, we use a bitwise or.
structure_db_two = loop.StructureDB(
loop.StructureDBDataType.ResidueDepths |
loop.StructureDBDataType.Dihedrals)

# Lets fill in some structures. It gets assumed, that all required
# data lies in the following directories.
structure_dir = "data"
prof_dir = "data"

# The naming of the files in the directories is e.g. 1CRN.pdb for
# the structure and 1CRNA.hhm for the profile.
# The structure possibly contain several chains, whereas the hhm
# file is only for that specific chain.
structure_ids = ["1CRN", "1AKI"]
chain_names = ["A", "A"]

for s_id, ch_name in zip(structure_ids, chain_names):

# Join together the data paths.
structure_path = os.path.join(structure_dir, s_id + ".pdb")
prof_path = os.path.join(prof_dir, s_id + ch_name + ".hhm")

# And the according profile in hhm format.

# For simplicity we use as SEQRES the sequence from the profile.
# In this case the numbering of the structures already matches.
seqres = seq.CreateSequence(ch_name, prof.sequence)

# Add the stuff to the first StructureDB
seqres, prof)

# Add the stuff to the second StructureDB,
# No profile required here...
seqres)

# We now have two structures in both databases...
# Lets get a summary of whats actually in there
structure_db_one.PrintStatistics()
structure_db_two.PrintStatistics()

# There is no profile derived from structures assigned to
# structure_db_one yet, the memory is only allocated and set to
# zero. In structure_db_two, there'll never be stored a structure
# profile as we did not initialize it accordingly.
# However, we can still use its coordinates and residue depths to
# generate profiles!
# To demonstrate, we use our structure_db_two to derive profiles
# and set them in structure_db_one.

for i in range(structure_db_one.GetNumCoords()):

# extract all required information
bb_list = structure_db_one.GetBackboneList(i)
res_depths = structure_db_one.GetResidueDepths(i)

# generate structure profiles based on structure_db_two
prof = structure_db_two.GenerateStructureProfile(bb_list,
res_depths)
# and add it to the previously created structure_db
structure_db_one.SetStructureProfile(i, prof)

# That's it! Let's save both databases down.
# structure_db_two will use much less memory, as it contains less data.
# Sidenote: We're saving the portable version. If you intent to use
# your database only on one system, the Save / Load functions should
structure_db_one.SavePortable("my_db_one.dat")
structure_db_two.SavePortable("my_db_two.dat")


Calculating the structural profiles is expensive and heavily depends on the size of the database used as source. If you want to do this for a larger database, you might want to consider two things:

1. Use a database of limited size to generate the actual profiles (something in between 5000 and 10000 nonredundant chains is enough)
2. Use the ost.seq.ProfileDB to gather profiles produced from jobs running in parallel
class promod3.loop.StructureDBDataType

The StructureDBDataType enum has to be passed at initialization of a StructureDB in order to define what data you want to store additionally to backbone coordinates and sequence. For the bare minimum (only backbone coordinates and sequence), use Minimal. If you want to store all data possible, use All. If you only want a subset, you can combine some of the datatypes with a bitwise or operation (see example script for StructureDB). One important note: If you enable AAFrequenciesStruct, the actual information is not automatically assigned. Only the according memory is allocated and set to zero, the actual information must be assigned manually (see example script again...).

Minimal, All, Dihedrals, SolventAccessibilities, ResidueDepths, DSSP, AAFrequencies, AAFrequenciesStruct

class promod3.loop.StructureDB(data_to_store)

Generates an empty StructureDB that can be filled with content through AddCoordinates(). The information extracted there is defined by data_to_store. Have a look at the StructureDBDataType documentation and at the example script...

Parameters: data_to_store (StructureDBDataType) – Specifies what data to store in the database, several flags can be combined with a bitwise or operator.
static Load(filename)
static LoadPortable(filename)

Loads raw binary file generated with Save() (optimized for fast reading) / portable file generated with SavePortable() (slower but less machine-dependent).

Parameters: filename (str) – Path to the file from which to load the database. The loaded data base StructureDB RuntimeError if file cannot be opened or if file cannot be parsed (see here for details).
Save(filename)
SavePortable(filename)

Saves a raw / portable binary representation. Use portable files for distribution and convert locally to raw files. See here for details.

Parameters: filename (str) – Path to the file where the database will be saved RuntimeError if file cannot be opened
HasData(data_type)

Checks, whether requested data type is available in the current database.

Parameters: data_type (StructureDBDataType) – Data type to check Whether the requested datatype is available bool
AddCoordinates(id, chain_name, ent, seqres, prof=None, only_longest_stretch=True)

This method takes an entity and adds coordinates and the sequence of one of its chains to the structural database. Additionally, all data as specified at the initialization of the database is extracted fully automatically by considering the full ent (e.g. when calculating solvent accessibilities etc.). The only exception is AAFrequencies, where a valid sequence profile is expected in prof that has matching sequence with seqres All residues in chain with name chain_name must have residue numbers that directly relate them to the seqres with an indexing scheme starting from one. If this is not the case, an error gets thrown. You might want to consider to use ost.seq.Renumber() for proper numbering. Based on consecutive numbering and additionally checking for valid peptide bonds, connected stretches are identified and every added connected stretch gets its own entry with CoordInfo as a descriptor. To avoid cluttering the database with many small fragments, the flag: only_longest_stretch can be used. Set it to False if all connected stretches of chain with name chain_name should be added. There is one final catch you have to consider: Due to the internal lossy data compression for the positions, the extent in x, y and z - direction for every connected stretch is limited to 655A. This should be sufficient for most structures, but stretches exceeding this maximum are discarded. For storing the structural data given these restraints, a translation is applied that gets stored as the shift attribute in the according CoordInfo object.

Parameters: id (str) – identifier of the added structure (e.g. pdb id) chain_name (str) – Name of the chain in ent you want to add ent (ost.mol.EntityHandle / ost.mol.EntityView) – The full entity that must contain a chain named as specified by chain_name. seqres (ost.seq.SequenceHandle) – The reference sequence of chain with name chain_name prof (ost.seq.ProfileHandle) – Profile information for the chain with name chain_name.

## Finding Fragments based on Geometric Features¶

The fragment database allows to organize, search and access the information stored in a structural database (StructureDB). In its current form it groups fragments in bins according to their length (incl. stems) and the geometry of their N-stem and C-stem (described by 4 angles and the distance between the N-stem C atom and the C-stem N atom). It can therefore be searched for fragments matching a certain geometry of N and C stems. The bins are accessed through a hash table, making searching the database ultra fast.

This example illustrates how to create a custom FragDB based on a StructureDB:

from ost import io
from promod3 import loop

# let's load the default structure_db
# in practice you might want to use the default StructureDB instead:

# and our beloved crambin...

# we now want to connect the residue with index 17 and 21
sub_res_list = structure.residues[17:22]
n_stem = sub_res_list[0]
c_stem = sub_res_list[-1]
frag_seq = ''.join([r.one_letter_code for r in sub_res_list])

# a custom FragDB can be built to identify fragments
# fulfilling these particular geometric constraints
frag_db = loop.FragDB(1.0, 20)

# at this point we add all possible fragments of length 5
# with an RMSD threshold of 0.5

# the FragDB can now be used to extract FragmentInfo objects to
# finally query the StructureDB
fragment_infos = frag_db.SearchDB(n_stem, c_stem, 5)

# get the fragments in form of BackboneList objects and store them
for i,f_i in enumerate(fragment_infos):
bb_list = structure_db.GetBackboneList(n_stem, c_stem,
f_i, frag_seq)
io.SavePDB(bb_list.ToEntity(), str(i) + ".pdb")

If odd, we extend to the closer bin, otherwise symmetrically. A list of FragmentInfo objects. These objects are related to the structural database with which you called the AddFragments function.

## Finding Fragments based on Sequence Features¶

In some cases you might want to use the StructureDB to search for fragments that possibly represent the structural conformation of interest. The Fragger searches a StructureDB for n fragments, that maximize a certain score and gathers a set of fragments with a guaranteed structural diversity based on an rmsd threshold. You can use the Fragger wrapped in a full fletched pipeline implemented in FraggerHandle or search for fragments from scratch using an arbitrary linear combination of scores:

• SeqID: Calculates the fraction of amino acids being identical when comparing a potential fragment from the StructureDB and the target sequence
• SeqSim: Calculates the avg. substitution matrix based sequence similarity of amino acids when comparing a potential fragment from the StructureDB and the target sequence
• SSAgree: Calculates the avg. agreement of the predicted secondary structure by PSIPRED [Jones1999] and the dssp [kabsch1983] assignment stored in the StructureDB. The Agreement term is based on a probabilistic approach also used in HHSearch [soding2005].
• TorsionProbability: Calculates the avg. probability of observing the phi/psi dihedral angles of a potential fragment from the StructureDB given the target sequence. The probabilities are extracted from the TorsionSampler class.
• SequenceProfile: Calculates the avg. profile score between the amino acid frequencies of a potential fragment from the StructureDB and a target profile assuming a gapfree alignment in between them. The scores are calculated as L1 distances between the profile columns.
• StructureProfile: Calculates the avg. profile score between the amino acid frequencies of a potential fragment from the StructureDB and a target profile assuming a gapfree alignment in between them. The scores are calculated as L1 distances between the profile columns. In this case, the amino acid frequencies extracted from structural alignments are used.
