7 Delaunay Tessellation of Protein Structure
D (Asp) Cα or center of mass Abstract each amino acid to a point Atomic coordinates – Protein Data Bank (PDB) D3 A22 S64 L6 F7 G62 C63 K4 R5 Delaunay tessellation: 3D “tiling” of space into non-overlapping, irregular tetrahedral simplices. Each simplex objectively defines a quadruplet of nearest-neighbor amino acids at its vertices.

8 Compositional propensities of Delaunay simplices

13 Computational Mutagenesis Methodology
Observations: Relatively few mutant and wt structures of same protein have been solved Tessellations of mutant and wt protein structures are very similar or identical Approach: Obtain topological score (TSmut) and 3D-1D potential profile vector (Qmut) for any mutant protein by using the wt structure tessellation as a template Simply change the residue label at a given point(s) and re-compute s(R,D,A,L) A22 s(I,D,A,L) A22 s(R,G,F,L) s(I,G,F,L) L6 L6 D3 Mutation D3 F7 F7 (R5  I5) s(R,D,K,S) s(I,D,K,S) G62 G62 K4 K4 S64 S64 s(R,S,C,G) s(I,S,C,G) R5 I5 C63 C63 (TSwt, Qwt) (TSmut, Qmut)

14 Computational Mutagenesis Methodology
Scalar “Residual Score” of a mutant: (mutant – wt) topological score difference = TSmut – TSwt (empirical measure of relative structural change due to mutation) Vector “Residual Profile” of a mutant: R = Qmut – Qwt = (mutant – wt) 3D-1D potential profile difference (environmental perturbation score at every position in structure) Denote R = < EC1, EC2, EC3,…, ECN > ECi = qi,mut – qi,wt = relative Environmental Change at position i Geometric property: If mutant is due to a single substitution at position j, then ECj ≡ mutant residual score (“epicenter” of impact) The only other nonzero EC components correspond to neighboring positions that participate in simplices with j

15 Approach 1: Protein Topological Score (TS)
Obtained by summing the log-likelihood scores of all simplicial quadruplets defined by the protein tessellation Global measure of protein sequence-structure compatibility Total (empirical or statistical) potential of the protein TS = ∑î s(î), sum taken over all simplex quadruplets î in the entire tessellation. s(R,D,A,L) A22 s(R,G,F,L) L6 D3 F7 s(R,D,K,S) G62 K4 S64 s(R,S,C,G) R5 C63 Close-up view of only the four simplices that use R at position 5 as a vertex (hypothetical)

16 Approach 2: Residue Environment Scores
For each amino acid position, locally sum the log-likelihood scores s(i,j,k,l) of only simplex quadruplets that include it as a vertex s(R,D,A,L) A22 s(R,G,F,L) L6 D3 Example: q5 = q(R5) = ∑(i,j,k,l) s(i,j,k,l), sum over all simplex quadruplets (i,j,k,l) that include amino acid R5 F7 s(R,D,K,S) G62 K4 S64 s(R,S,C,G) R5 C63 The scores of all amino acid positions in the protein structure form a 3D-1D Potential Profile vector Q = < q1, q2, q3,…,qN > (N = length of primary sequence in solved structure)

20 Functional Effects of Amino Acid Substitutions
Change in protein stability: Effect on melting temperature: ΔTm = Tm (mutant) – Tm (wt) Effect on thermal denaturation: ΔΔG = ΔG (mutant) – ΔG (wt) Effect on denaturant denaturation: ΔΔGH2O = ΔGH2O (mutant) – ΔGH2O (wt) Change in protein activity: Mutant enzymatic activity relative to wt Mutant strength of DNA binding relative to wt Disease potential of human coding nsSNPs Neutral polymorphism or disease-associated mutation? For protein targets of inhibitor drugs: Continued susceptibility or (degree of ) resistance that patients with the mutant protein have to the inhibitor Inhibitor binding energy to mutant target relative to wt

40 Evaluating Algorithm Performance
Overall goal: Develop model with known examples to accurately predict class (or value) of instances that have not yet been assayed experimentally (potentially great savings of time and money) Ideal situation: split large original dataset into 3 subsets Training set (learn model) Validation set (optimize model by tweaking model parameters) Test set (evaluate model on new data not used to develop model) Errors measured at each step (resubstitution, validation, generalization) Approaches: Tenfold cross-validation (10-fold CV); leave-one-out CV (i.e., jackknife or N-fold CV, N = dataset size); % split (e.g., use only 2/3 for training, 1/3 held out for testing)

41 Evaluating Algorithm Performance
10-fold CV Randomly split the dataset instances into 10 equally-sized subsets Hold-out subset 1; combine subsets 2-10 into one training set for learning a model; use trained model to predict classes of instances in subset 1 Repeat previous step 9 more times (e.g., hold-out subset 2, combine subsets 1 and 3-10 together to train a model, use model to predict subset 2, etc) We end up with 10 models, each trained using 90% of the original dataset, and each used to predict the held-out 10% subset. In the end, each instance has one class prediction – compare to actual class LOOCV (leave-one-out CV, jackknife, or N-fold CV) Similar to above, but each subset contains only 1 instance Deterministic – no randomness to which instances are grouped as subsets Overall prediction accuracy provides rough idea of how a model trained with the full dataset will perform % split (self-explanatory)

42 Evaluating Algorithm Performance
Assume instances belong to two generic classes (Pos/Neg) Results of comparing predictions with actual classes based on the approaches described (10-fold CV, LOOCV, % split) can be summarized in a confusion matrix: Classification performance measures: accuracy = (TP+TN) / (TP+FP+TN+FN); sensitivity = TP / (TP+FN); specificity = TN / (TN+FP); precision = TP / (TP+FP); BER = 0.5 × [FP / (FP+TN) + FN / (FN+TP)]; MCC = (TP×TN – FP×FN) / (TP+FN)(TP+FP)(TN+FN)(TN+FP); AUC = area under ROC curve (plot of sensitivity vs. 1 – specificity) For regression models: correlation coefficient, standard error Predicted as Pos Neg TP FN FP TN Actual class Pos Neg

43 ROC Curve Plot of true positive rate (sensitivity) versus false positive rate (1 – specificity) in the unit square AUC = probability that classifier will rank a randomly chosen positive instance higher than a randomly chosen negative one AUC ~ 0.5 (ROC close to diagonal line joining points (0,0) and (1,1)) suggests no signal in dataset and that trained model is not likely to perform any better than random guessing AUC = 1 (piecewise linear ROC joining (0,0) to (0,1) and (0,1) to (1,1)) indicates a perfect classifier
