RosettaRemodel can not work now?

Hi, everybody, the RosettaRemodel in Rosetta3.4 and Rosetta3.5 seems not to work.

There is no executable file like "remodel.macosgccrelease" and no example in the "rosetta/rosetta_tests/tests/remodel/", why? thank you.

From what I have been told, it was included in the first weekly release. Try that, and let us know if you run into any problems.

Hi, jadolfbr

There is something wrong as follows:

The constraint file:
TEMPLATE:: ATOM_MAP: 1 atom_name: SG CB CA
TEMPLATE:: ATOM_MAP: 1 residue1: C

TEMPLATE:: ATOM_MAP: 2 atom_type: Nhis,
TEMPLATE:: ATOM_MAP: 2 residue1: H

CONSTRAINT:: distanceAB: 3.00 1.80 1.0 1


1 T .
2 E .

106 V .
107 C . CST1A
108 T .
150 V .
151 P .
152 P .
153 S .
154 K .
155 E E
156 I E
157 K E
159 W E
160 D .

The command:
../../source/bin/remodel.linuxgccrelease -database ../../database/ -s 1UGQ-renumber.pdb -remodel:blueprint Blueprint.1UGQ -run:chain A -enzdes:cstfile C-cst.enzdes.cst -remodel:num_trajectory 2 -overwrite -remodel:quick_and_dirty -run:constant_seed

Could you give me a hand? thanks!

I get the answer, we need change the 158V to 158H first,then apply the constraint, it is OK.

Hi, everybody

I find an interesting thing!

It seems that the "remodel part" of protein always changes to "V" whatever the secondary structure is set.

Did anyone have the experience? Thanks.

If you're pre-mutating your input structure to H, make sure you update your blueprint file to match. Otherwise the remodel part might get confused regarding if it's working with a H or V residue.

Thanks to rmoretti.

like the picture in the attachment. why?

the sequence VVVRVVV is remodeled.

Oh, yeah. Valine is used in many centroid situations as an "average" amino acid. When you're doing backbone remodeling, you need to have some idea of the size of the sidechain, even if you're going to allow design at that location later. Valine is a good stand in amino acid in those contexts.

My guess is that when the remodel code sees that you're going to be remodeling the (especially if you're going to change it with redesign) it will change the identity to V for the remodeling process. The intermediate structures (e.g. just out of centroid) might then have valine at those positions. Once you go through the full atom design stages, however, the desired amino acid identities should be imposed at those positions, and the valines should disappear, except for those locations where they are allowed.
