Conditioned Protein Structure Prediction

Tengyu Xie · Zilin Song · Jing Huang


Deep learning based protein structure prediction has facilitated major breakthroughs in biological sciences. However, current methods struggle with alternative conformation prediction and offer limited integration of expert knowledge on protein dynamics. We introduce AFEXplorer, a generic approach that tailors AlphaFold predictions to user-defined constraints in coarse coordinate spaces by optimizing embedding features. Its effectiveness in generating functional protein conformations in accordance with predefined conditions were demonstrated through comprehensive examples. AFEXplorer serves as a versatile platform for conditioned protein structure prediction, bridging the gap between automated models and domain-specific insights.
