1. Kim, Doo Nam. Computer-based Design of β-sheet Containing Proteins.

Degree: Biochemistry and Biophysics, 2016, University of North Carolina

Protein design is an excellent test of the minimal determinants of protein structure. Although 70% of naturally occurring proteins contain β-sheets, most previous design efforts have been limited to α-helix bundle proteins or the redesign of naturally occurring proteins. Here, we test and develop computer based methods for designing proteins rich in β-strands. The molecular modeling program Rosetta was used for three separate design tasks: (1) the design of α/β and α+β proteins with a new method called SEWING, which builds proteins from pieces of naturally occurring proteins, (2) the stabilization of β-sheet proteins via the redesign of surface-facing residues, and (3) the de novo design of β-sandwich proteins. This research showed that it is possible to extend the SEWING method to non-α-helix proteins, allowing the incorporation of structural features found in nature, and that it is possible to dramatically boost protein thermal stability (> 25 °C) with the redesign β-sheet surfaces. However, we also found that the de novo design of β-sandwich proteins still remains an elusive goal. Advisors/Committee Members: Kim, Doo Nam, Kuhlman, Brian, Zhang, Qi, Lee, Andrew, Erickson, Harold, Richardson, Jane.
