1 Prediction of T cell epitopes using artificial neural networks Morten Nielsen, CBS, BioCentrum, DTU

2 Objectives How to train a neural network to predict peptide MHC class I binding Understand why NN’s perform the best –Higher order sequence information The wisdom of the crowd! –Why enlightened despotism does not work even for Neural networks

3 Outline MHC class I epitopes –Why MHC binding? How to predict MHC binding? –Information content –Weight matrices –Neural networks Neural network theory –Sequence encoding Examples

4 Prediction of HLA binding specificity Simple Motifs –Allowed/non allowed amino acids Extended motifs –Amino acid preferences (SYFPEITHI)SYFPEITHI) –Anchor/Preferred/other amino acids Hidden Markov models –Peptide statistics from sequence alignment (previous talk) Neural networks –Can take sequence correlations into account

5 SYFPEITHI predictions Extended motifs based on peptides from the literature and peptides eluted from cells expressing specific HLAs ( i.e., binding peptides) Scoring scheme is not readily accessible. Positions defined as anchor or auxiliary anchor positions are weighted differently (higher) The final score is the sum of the scores at each position Predictions can be made for several HLA-A, -B and -DRB1 alleles, as well as some mice K, D and L alleles.

6 BIMAS Matrix made from peptides with a measured T 1/2 for the MHC-peptide complex The matrices are available on the website The final score is the product of the scores of each position in the matrix multiplied with a constant, different for each MHC, to give a prediction of the T 1/2 Predictions can be obtained for several HLA-A, -B and -C alleles, mice K,D and L alleles, and a single cattle MHC.

7 How to predict The effect on the binding affinity of having a given amino acid at one position can be influenced by the amino acids at other positions in the peptide (sequence correlations). –Two adjacent amino acids may for example compete for the space in a pocket in the MHC molecule. Artificial neural networks (ANN) are ideally suited to take such correlations into account

8 Higher order sequence correlations Neural networks can learn higher order correlations! –What does this mean? S S => 0 L S => 1 S L => 1 L L => 0 No linear function can learn this (XOR) pattern Say that the peptide needs one and only one large amino acid in the positions P3 and P4 to fill the binding cleft How would you formulate this to test if a peptide can bind?

9 Neural network learning higher order correlations

10 How is mutual information calculated? Information content was calculated as Gives information in a single position Similar relation for mutual information Gives mutual information between two positions Mutual information

11 Mutual information. Example ALWGFFPVA ILKEPVHGV ILGFVFTLT LLFGYPVYV GLSPTVWLS YMNGTMSQV GILGFVFTL WLSLLVPFV FLPSDFFPS P1 P6 P(G 1 ) = 2/9 = 0.22,.. P(V 6 ) = 4/9 = 0.44,.. P(G 1,V 6 ) = 2/9 = 0.22, P(G 1 )*P(V 6 ) = 8/81 = 0.10 log(0.22/0.10) > 0 Knowing that you have G at P 1 allows you to make an educated guess on what you will find at P 6. P(V 6 ) = 4/9. P(V 6 |G 1 ) = 1.0!

14 Sequence encoding How to represent a peptide amino acid sequence to the neural network? Sparse encoding (all amino acids are equally disalike) Blosum encoding (encodes similarities between the different amino acids) Weight matrix (encodes the position specific amino acid preference of the HLA binding motif)

19 The Wisdom of the Crowds The Wisdom of Crowds. Why the Many are Smarter than the Few. James Surowiecki One day in the fall of 1906, the British scientist Fracis Galton left his home and headed for a country fair… He believed that only a very few people had the characteristics necessary to keep societies healthy. He had devoted much of his career to measuring those characteristics, in fact, in order to prove that the vast majority of people did not have them. … Galton came across a weight-judging competition…Eight hundred people tried their luck. They were a diverse lot, butchers, farmers, clerks and many other no-experts…The crowd had guessed … pounds, the ox weighted 1.198

20 Network ensembles No one single network with a particular architecture and sequence encoding scheme, will constantly perform the best Also for Neural network predictions will enlightened despotism fail –For some peptides, BLOSUM encoding with a four neuron hidden layer can best predict the peptide/MHC binding, for other peptides a sparse encoded network with zero hidden neurons performs the best –Wisdom of the Crowd Never use just one neural network Use Network ensembles

37 Vaccine design. Polytope optimization Successful immunization can be obtained only if the epitopes encoded by the polytope are correctly processed and presented. Cleavage by the proteasome in the cytosol, translocation into the ER by the TAP complex, as well as binding to MHC class I should be taken into account in an integrative manner. The design of a polytope can be done in an effective way by modifying the sequential order of the different epitopes, and by inserting specific amino acids that will favor optimal cleavage and transport by the TAP complex, as linkers between the epitopes.

40 Polytope optimization Algorithm Optimization of four measures: 1.The number of poor C-terminal cleavage sites of epitopes (predicted cleavage < 0.9) 2.The number of internal cleavage sites (within epitope cleavages with a prediction larger than the predicted C- terminal cleavage) 3.The number of new epitopes (number of processed and presented epitopes in the fusing regions spanning the epitopes) 4.The length of the linker region inserted between epitopes. The optimization seeks to minimize the above four terms by use of Monte Carlo Metropolis simulations [Metropolis et al., 1953]

42 Summary MHC class I binding can be very accurately predicted using ANN Higher order sequence correlations are important for peptide:MHC-I binding ANN can can be trained without overfitting Using multiple sequence encoding schemes Wisdom of the crowd Optimization can generate polytopes with high likelihood for antigen presentation
