Membrane protein complexes docking benchmark. This repository contains the entries of the Membrane Protein docking benchmark (V1.0). It also contains ProFit analysis scripts for the calculation of Interface- and Ligand-RMSD (I-/L-RMSD) values for all the entries of the benchmark. We have generated docking decoys for all the entries of the benchmark with the HADDOCK webserver. In addition to I- and L-RMSDs we have calculated van der Waals, Electrostatic and Desolvation energies and the Buried Surface Area (BSA) for all decoys of all complexes.
The repository structure is the following:

The structures folder contains all the structure files in PDB format. Both reference (bound) and unbound structures are included. All structures have been modified so that chain identifiers and residue numbering is consistent.
*_bound.pdb-> The reference structure for a given complex.
*_unbound_*.pdb-> The unbound structures for a given complex.
*_unbound.pdb-> The unbound structures optimally and independently superimposed on the reference chains.
*.irmsd-> The backbond I-RMSD (in Å) of the unbound complex relative to the reference structure.
*.izone-> ProFit-compatible I-RMSD calculation script.
*.lzone-> ProFit-compatible L-RMSD calculation script.
The two subfolders in the analysis folder contain the results of the docking runs for two docking scenarios. One using only random restraints to drive the docking (random_restraints) and one using restraints derived from the interface of the bound complex (true_interface). Both folders contain 37 space-separated text files that are the results of the analysis of the docking run of a given complex.
The two tables below list the dimeric and trimeric entries respectively. The second column is the PDB id of the bound complex, the second and third (second through fourth for the trimeric table) list the origin of the unbound structures for that complex. The complexes that appear more than once in the benchmark are idenitified by the presence of an identifier in the complex_id field (eg 2r6g-TM).
The Category column refers to the nature of the complex. MS stands for complexes whose interface lies along the membrane-soluble region, TM stands for complexes whose interface lies within the membrane, Both stands for complexes whose interface lies in both membrane and soluble regions, Buried stands for complexes where one of the partners is buried in a transmembrane β-barrel and AB stands for complexes where one of the partners is an antibody-like domain.
The Composition column refers to the origin of the unbound structures of a complex. BB stands for Bound-Bound and means all partners have been extracted from the bound complex, UB stands for Bound-Unbound and means at least one of the partners has been extracted from an alternative structure and UU stands for Unbound-Unbound and means none of the partners originate in the bound complex.
The Difficulty column reflects the difficulty of a given complex with Bound cases having an I-RMSD of 0, Easy cases having an I-RMSD between 0 and 1Å, Intermediate cases having an I-RMSD between 1 and 2Å and Hard cases having an I-RMSD greater than 2Å.

The values that have been calculated with HADDOCK are the Eair, Evdw, Eelec, Edesolv and BSA terms. HS stands for HADDOCK-SCORE which is a weighted sum of the pervious terms. Eair refers to the restraint energy, Evdw and Eelec are the non-bonded terms and are calculated with the OPLS force field, Edesolv stands for desolvation energy and BSA stands for Buried Surface Area.
The terms that are related to HADDOCK but are not included in the scoring of complexes are stage, and rank. Stage refers to one of three stages of a HADDOCK run:
- it0 - Rigid-body energy minisation
- it1 - Simulated annealing in torsional space
- itw - Flexible refinement in explicit solvent
Rank refers to the ranking of that particular structure by the HADDOCK scoring function.
The two RMSD terms are i-RMSD and l-RMSD. They stand for interface and ligand RMSD respectively. For the I-RMSD calculation we have calculated the RMSD of the backbone atoms of the interface. The interface is defined as the set of residues whose atoms are within 10Å of any atom of a partner. For the L-RMSD calculation we have superimposed the receptors (defined as the biggest partner) using all backbone atoms and calculated the displacement of the backbone atoms of the ligand (defined as the smallest partner). For the trimers, we have calculated the displacement of both partners (with regards to the first) and report their mean and standard deviation.
Those interested in reproducing the RMSD calculations can do so with the following ProFit commands
1m56 as an example.
For the I-RMSD calculations:
profit -f AB.izone 1m56_bound.pdb 1m56_unbound.pdb
If ProFit is correctly installed on your system you should see the following output:
PPPPP FFFFFF ii tt PP PP FF tt PP PP rrrrr oooo FF ii ttttt PPPPP rr rr oo oo FFFF ii tt PP rr oo oo FF ii tt PP rr oo oo FF ii tt PP rr oooo FF ii ttt Protein Least Squares Fitting Version 3.1 Copyright (c) Dr. Andrew C.R.

RMS: 0.572 Finished script: 'AB.izone'
The line starting with RMS contains the I-RMSD value.
For the L-RMSD calculations:
profit -f AB.lzone 1m56_bound.pdb 1m56_unbound.pdb
Which should print:
PPPPP FFFFFF ii tt PP PP FF tt PP PP rrrrr oooo FF ii ttttt PPPPP rr rr oo oo FFFF ii tt PP rr oo oo FF ii tt PP rr oo oo FF ii tt PP rr oooo FF ii ttt Protein Least Squares Fitting Version 3.1 Copyright (c) Dr. Andrew C.R.

RMS: 0.560 RMS: 0.000 Finished script: 'AB.lzone'
In this case two RMSD values are calculated and printed to the terminal. The first is the RMSD
of the backbone atoms of the receptor (in this case chain A). The second is the L-RMSD value.
In this case it is 0 as chain B has been extracted from the bound complex for case
