These scripts demonstrate the use of IMP, MODELLER, FoXS, and AllosMod, and Minimal Ensemble Search in the modeling of the Nup133 protein in the S. cerevisiae Nuclear Pore Complex (NPC). First, MODELLER is used to generate an initial comparative model of Nup133 guided by FoXS fits to SAXS data. Then, the model was subjected to conformational sampling with AllosMod, and finally Minimal Ensemble Search was used to identify four models that together reproduced both the SAXS data and a set of electron microscopy class averages. The final model was also validated against a set of chemical cross-links, that were not used in the modeling.
A full description of the scripts can be found in Integrative structure-function mapping of the nucleoporin Nup133 suggests a conserved mechanism for membrane anchoring of the nuclear pore complex.
Python scripts to generate comparative models of parts of the Nup133 can
be found in the
MODELLER subdirectory. Each subdirectory corresponds to
modeling consistent with a single construct (directory names match the protein
IDs in Supplementary Table S1 in the publication, also available as
SAXS/Nup133_tableS1.xls). A number of candidate models were generated
for each construct, ranked by FoXS score, and the single best model selected
for subsequent steps.
MODELLER/23917generates models consistent with construct 490-1157
MODELLER/23902generates models consistent with construct 2-515
MODELLER/23904Ctakes the best scoring model 23917 and generates models consistent with construct 490-1157
MODELLER/23904takes the best scoring model 23904C and 23902a and generates models consistent with construct 2-1157 (the complete protein)
The complete ensemble was generated by submission to the AllosMod web server.
Minimal Ensemble Search
Results from running Minimal Ensemble Search can be found in the
the final selected ensemble of four models, also present in this directory.
The electron microscopy class averages used are also present in the
Validation against cross-links
Intramolecular cross-link data is available in
Crosslinks/DSS_EDC_crosslinks.txt. Simple Python scripts to calculate
residue-residue distances for the final ensemble can be found in the same
