Structure-based Mutation Analysis

Mapping onto crystal structure

Side chain properties

Figure 2: Structure of methionine on position 82 in the wildtype protein
Figure 3: Structure of Leucine on position 82 in the mutated protein

Hydrogen Bonding network

The following figures show the hydrogen bonds between the wildtype residue and its environment compared to the formation of hydrogen bonds when the corresponding residue is mutated.


Figure 4: Hydrogen Bonds for glutamine on pos 125 in the wild type structure
Figure 5: Hydrogen Bonds for glutamic acid on pos 125 in the mutated type structure

The substitution from glutamine to glutamic acid changes the side chain properties completely. A NH2 group is substituted by a negatively charged oxygen. The NH2 which served in the wildtype structure as a hydrogen bond acceptor (see Figure 4) is not present any more, so the hydrogen bonding network changed for this substitution (compare Figure 4 and 5).

foldX Energy Comparison

We used the foldX tool to compare the energy of the wildtype protein and the mutated structure. The following table shows the calculated energy values as well as the percentage of difference, to compare the energy calculations with other tools:

Energy wildtype energy total energy of mutated protein difference
absolute 401.00 437.88 36.88
relative 100% 109% 9%

The total energy of the mutated structure is a little bit higher than the energy of the wildtype protein structure. As protein energies should be low for a stable protein, the increasing energy leads to the assumption that this mutation might be damaging for the protein structure.

minimise Energy Comparison

Next we used the minimise tool to compare the energy of the wildtype protein and the mutated structure. The following table shows the calculated energy values as well as the percentage of difference, to compare the energy calculations with other tools:

Energy wildtype energy total energy of mutated protein difference
absolute -2485.452755 -4253.174790 -1767.722015
relative 100% 58% 42%

The mutated structure has an energy that is much smaller than the wildtype

gromacs Energy comparison

The Gromacs energy comparison was conducted using the AMBER03 force field. The following table shows the calculated energies for the wildtype protein structure.

Energy Average Err.Est RMSD Tot-Drift (kJ/mol)
Bond 3072.83 2200 -nan -13100.2
Angle 3616.97 230 -nan -1295.57
Potential 2.67001e+07 2.6e+07 -nan -1.60382e+08

Here are the results for the mutated protein structure.

Energy Average Err.Est RMSD Tot-Drift (kJ/mol)
Bond 2519.85 1700 6351.32 -10027.5
Angle 3626.21 260 618.433 -1418.24
Potential 5.23e+06 5.2e+06 7.5e+07 -3.17e+07


As we want to compare the Gromacs energies with the other tools, we calculate the ratio of difference considering the potential energy:

Energy wildtype energy total energy of mutated protein difference
absolute 2.67001e+07 5.16e+06 -21540100
relative 100% 19% 81%

The calculated energy for the mutated structure is much smaller than for the wildtype structure.
