Replica exchange improves sampling in low-resolution docking stage of RosettaDock.

Zhang Z, Lange OF - PLoS ONE (2013)

Bottom Line: A benchmark of 30 complexes starting from structures of the unbound binding partners shows improved performance for ReplicaDock and ZDOCK when compared to shotgun sampling at equal or less computational expense.ReplicaDock and ZDOCK consistently reach lower energies and generate significantly more near-native conformations than shotgun sampling.Additionally, the refined ReplicaDock ensembles reach significantly lower interface energies and many previously hidden features of the docking energy landscape become visible when ReplicaDock is applied.

ABSTRACT
Many protein-protein docking protocols are based on a shotgun approach, in which thousands of independent random-start trajectories minimize the rigid-body degrees of freedom. Another strategy is enumerative sampling as used in ZDOCK. Here, we introduce an alternative strategy, ReplicaDock, using a small number of long trajectories of temperature replica exchange. We compare replica exchange sampling as low-resolution stage of RosettaDock with RosettaDock's original shotgun sampling as well as with ZDOCK. A benchmark of 30 complexes starting from structures of the unbound binding partners shows improved performance for ReplicaDock and ZDOCK when compared to shotgun sampling at equal or less computational expense. ReplicaDock and ZDOCK consistently reach lower energies and generate significantly more near-native conformations than shotgun sampling. Accordingly, they both improve typical metrics of prediction quality of complex structures after refinement. Additionally, the refined ReplicaDock ensembles reach significantly lower interface energies and many previously hidden features of the docking energy landscape become visible when ReplicaDock is applied.

The centroid energy function prefers an alternative binding modes for the bound docking target 1emv.A–B) shotgun and ReplicaDock sample the low-resolution docking stage with ‘capped’ centroid energy function. C–D) shotgun and ReplicaDock sample the low-resolution docking stage with centroid energy function with no cap. The structure indicated by the red circle will be shown in Figure 8.

C–D) shotgun and ReplicaDock sample the low-resolution docking stage with centroid energy function with no cap. The structure indicated by the red circle will be shown in Figure 8.

Mentions: As shown in Section 4.4, for some targets none or only a few near-native decoys are sampled by both approaches. We found that in these cases the centroid energy function fails to stabilize the native conformation and/or over-stabilizes non-native conformations (Figure 7). In this section, we explore possible reasons for these failures of the low-resolution energy function.
