---CheShift plug-in: Validate your protein model for PyMOL --- Author  : Osvaldo Martin e-mail  : aloctavodia@gmail.com Date  : January 2012 Version : 1.0 Mail  : aloctavodia@gmail.com Citation: Martin O.A.

Description

This plug-in provides a way to validate a protein model using observed chemical shifts. All computations run on CheShift server (www.cheshift.com), and the results are retrieved to PyMOL, hence an Internet connection is needed.


Installation

Linux

1) The plug-in can be downloaded from here Pymol-script-repo

2) You should install mechanize, a python module. This module is available from the repositories of the main Linux distributions. Just use your default package manager (or command line) to install it. In Ubuntu/Debian the package name is "python-mechanize".

Windows

This plug-in have not been extensively tested on a Windows machines, but it should work...

1) The plug-in can be downloaded from here Pymol-script-repo

2) You should install mechanize, a python module. In order to do that, download this unzip and copy the mechanize folder were you have installed PyMol, usually is C:\Program Files\DeLano Scientific\PyMOL\modules\pmg_tk\startup


Mac OsX

This plug-in have not been tested on a Mac OsX machine, but it should work...

1) The plug-in can be downloaded from here Pymol-script-repo

2) You should install mechanize, a python module. In order to do that download this unzip and copy the mechanize folder were you have installed PyMol. For the X11/Hybrid version, the location is probably: PyMOLX11Hybrid.app/pymol/modules/pmg_tk/startup


Using the Plug-in

1) Launch PyMOL and select "CheShift" from the Plug-ins menu. 2) Select a PDB file of your protein model (using the CheShift plug-in). 3) Select a file with the experimental Chemical Shift values. 4) Click the "Submit" button. 5) Wait until results are displayed (this could take a few minutes, depending on all existing request on the server. Analyzing 20 conformations of a 100 residues protein takes ~4 minutes).

Note:

  • If more than 20 conformers are uploaded only the 20 first will be analyzed
  • If the PDB file has more than one chain only the first one will be analyzed
  • The PDB file must not have missing residues
  • Missing observed 13Cα chemical shifts are tolerated
  • The observed 13Cα chemical shifts values should be in BMRB-Star format (only

the 13Cα are needed, the other nucleus could be present but are ignored)

you can use a complete BMRB file or just a file with only the experimental chemical shifts. In the latter case you can use this format:

       1  21 MET N    N 121.0  0.25 1 
       2  21 MET H    H   8.36 0.01 1 
       3  21 MET CA   C  55.9  0.20 1 
       4  21 MET HA   H   4.39 0.01 1

       8  21 MET HE   H   2.09 0.01 1 
       9  21 MET C    C 176.6  0.10 1 
      10  22 GLY N    N 111.4  0.25 1 
      11  22 GLY H    H   8.55 0.01 1 
      12  22 GLY CA   C  44.9  0.20 1 
      13  22 GLY HA2  H   4.15 0.01 2 
      14  22 GLY HA3  H   3.91 0.01 2 
      15  22 GLY C    C 173.2  0.10 1 

or this format:

        2   1   1 SER HB2  H   3.85 0.005 2

Result of a CheShift analysis

Proxy Configuration

The CheShift plug-in will try to correctly guess your proxy configuration, but this is a tricky business and many things could fail. In that scenario you will be prompted to manually set your proxy settings. In case you manually set the proxy configuration the plug-in will save your proxy settings and next time it will attempt to use those saved settings to connect to the Internet.
