intrensic disrodered proteins

Hello everyone,

I have been running several fixbb and flxbb protocols for a while now, but it seems the outcome is not very promising.

So i guess mainly the issue is with disordered structures? Whatever I RosettaDesign i always end up with decoys that have intrensic disrodered states for the majority of the residues in a structure.

this of course affect the folding simulation to determine the success of the design, as well as the crystallisability of the structure.

My question is: how can I overcome this issue? how can i push Rosetta to sequence design (fixbb or flxbb) and reduce the probability of ending up with intrinsically disordered proteins?

This is something that we've been grappling with for some time.  One thing that you can do is use the aa_composition score term to require regional amino  acid compositions more likely to favour folding.  (For example, you can select a loop and enforce that there be at least one proline in that loop.)

Documentation on the aa_composition score term is here:
