Sequence Information Say that a peptide must have L at P2 in order to bind, and that A,F,W,and Y are found at P1. Which position has most information? How many questions do I need to ask to tell if a peptide binds looking at only P1 or P2? P1: 4 questions (at most) P2: 1 question (L or not) P2 has the most information Calculate pa at each position Entropy Information content Conserved positions PV=1, P!v=0 => S=0, I=log(20) Mutable positions Paa=1/20 => S=log(20), I=0

**Characterizing a binding motif from small data sets**

10 MHC restricted peptides What can we learn? A at P1 favors binding? I is not allowed at P9? K at P4 favors binding? Which positions are important for binding? ALAKAAAAM ALAKAAAAN ALAKAAAAR ALAKAAAAT ALAKAAAAV GMNERPILT GILGFVFTM TLNAWVKVV KLNEPVLLL AVVPFIVSV

**Simple motifs Yes/No rules**

10 MHC restricted peptides ALAKAAAAM ALAKAAAAN ALAKAAAAR ALAKAAAAT ALAKAAAAV GMNERPILT GILGFVFTM TLNAWVKVV KLNEPVLLL AVVPFIVSV Only 11 of 212 peptides identified! Need more flexible rules If not fit P1 but fit P2 then ok Not all positions are equally important We know that P2 and P9 determines binding more than other positions Cannot discriminate between good and very good binders

16
**Simple motifs Yes/No rules**

10 MHC restricted peptides ALAKAAAAM ALAKAAAAN ALAKAAAAR ALAKAAAAT ALAKAAAAV GMNERPILT GILGFVFTM TLNAWVKVV KLNEPVLLL AVVPFIVSV Example Two first peptides will not fit the motif. They are all good binders (aff< 500nM) RLLDDTPEV 84 nM GLLGNVSTV 23 nM ALAKAAAAL 309 nM

17
**Extended motifs Fitness of aa at each position given by P(aa)**

Example P1 PA = 6/10 PG = 2/10 PT = PK = 1/10 PC = PD = …PV = 0 Problems Few data Data redundancy/duplication ALAKAAAAM ALAKAAAAN ALAKAAAAR ALAKAAAAT ALAKAAAAV GMNERPILT GILGFVFTM TLNAWVKVV KLNEPVLLL AVVPFIVSV RLLDDTPEV 84 nM GLLGNVSTV 23 nM ALAKAAAAL 309 nM

**Pseudo counts ALAKAAAAM**

ALAKAAAAN ALAKAAAAR ALAKAAAAT ALAKAAAAV GMNERPILT GILGFVFTM TLNAWVKVV KLNEPVLLL AVVPFIVSV I is not found at position P9. Does this mean that I is forbidden (P(I)=0)? No! Use Blosum substitution matrix to estimate pseudo frequency of I at P9

22
**What is a pseudo count? Say V is observed at P1**

A R N D C Q E G H I L K M F P S T W Y V A R N D C …. Y V Say V is observed at P1 Knowing that V at P1 binds, what is the probability that a peptide could have I at P1? P(I|V) = 0.16

23
**Pseudo count estimation**

ALAKAAAAM ALAKAAAAN ALAKAAAAR ALAKAAAAT ALAKAAAAV GMNERPILT GILGFVFTM TLNAWVKVV KLNEPVLLL AVVPFIVSV Calculate observed amino acids frequencies fa Pseudo frequency for amino acid b Example

24
Weight on pseudo count ALAKAAAAM ALAKAAAAN ALAKAAAAR ALAKAAAAT ALAKAAAAV GMNERPILT GILGFVFTM TLNAWVKVV KLNEPVLLL AVVPFIVSV Pseudo counts are important when only limited data is available With large data sets only “true” observation should count is the effective number of sequences (N-1), is the weight on prior

25
**Weight on pseudo count Example**

ALAKAAAAM ALAKAAAAN ALAKAAAAR ALAKAAAAT ALAKAAAAV GMNERPILT GILGFVFTM TLNAWVKVV KLNEPVLLL AVVPFIVSV Example If large, p ≈ f and only the observed data defines the motif If small, p ≈ g and the pseudo counts (or prior) defines the motif is [50-200] normally

**Sequence weighting and pseudo counts**

ALAKAAAAM ALAKAAAAN ALAKAAAAR ALAKAAAAT ALAKAAAAV GMNERPILT GILGFVFTM TLNAWVKVV KLNEPVLLL AVVPFIVSV RLLDDTPEV 84nM GLLGNVSTV 23nM ALAKAAAAL 309nM P7P and P7S > 0

27
**Position specific weighting**

We know that positions 2 and 9 are anchor positions for most MHC binding motifs Increase weight on high information positions Motif found on large data set

28
Weight matrices Estimate amino acid frequencies from alignment including sequence weighting and pseudo count What do the numbers mean? P2(V)>P2(M). Does this mean that V enables binding more than M. In nature not all amino acids are found equally often In nature V is found more often than M, so we must somehow rescale with the background qM = 0.025, qV = 0.073 Finding 5% V is hence not significant, but 5% M highly significant A R N D C Q E G H I L K M F P S T W Y V

29
**Weight matrices A weight matrix is given as Wij = log(pij/qj)**

where i is a position in the motif, and j an amino acid. qj is the background frequency for amino acid j. W is a L x 20 matrix, L is motif length A R N D C Q E G H I L K M F P S T W Y V

30
**Scoring a sequence to a weight matrix**

Score sequences to weight matrix by looking up and adding L values from the matrix A R N D C Q E G H I L K M F P S T W Y V Which peptide is most likely to bind? Which peptide second? RLLDDTPEV GLLGNVSTV ALAKAAAAL 11.9 14.7 4.3 84nM 23nM 309nM
