Analysis of CASP8 targets and predictions
These web pages present the analysis of CASP8 targets and predictions by the Grishin lab. Only 3D models (TS: Tertiary structure prediction) were used here, other types of predictions, such as high-resolution, disorder, or function, were not considered. Predictions were evaluated using LGA GDT-TS scores and several other methods. Targets were analyzed individually for their sequence-structure properties and prediction quality. PDB structures of targets were modified to match target sequences, and evolutionary domains were deduced from structures. Evaluation of predictions was performed on both domains and whole chains of targets, and the effects of domain parsing on the evaluation were examined. NMR structures were processed for evaluation, poorly structured regions being removed. Expert evolutionary classification was done for all targets, including most intricate cases: e.g. T0465, a very distant version of the FYSH domain; and T0460, a modified NADH-quinone oxidoreductase chain 5 (Nqo5) domain, but a singleton sequence. Server models superimposed with target structures can be downloaded and visualized as PyMOL scripts. Structure images (mostly animated GIFs) on target pages were prepared in PyMOL.
