Introduction

Assignment validation suite (AVS) checks the chemical shifts list in BioMagResBank (BMRB) format for a number of possible problems such as consistency to IUPAC residue/atom naming, chemical shifts that are widely outside the typical range for the particular atom/residue, and reports useful statistics information about the examined chemical shift set (e.g. percents assignments, number of stereospecifically assigned methyls, percents aromatic sidechain assignments, etc).   AVS is run on every chemical shift set that is submitted to the BMRB, and is included as part of the Protein Structure Validation Suite (PSVS). 


Practical Aspects

Running AVS

A number of version for the standalone AVS routine exist that are adapted for different bmrb versions  (2.1 or 3.1). Two perl scripts can be run from any directory on any computer running perl by either pointing to the local AutoAssign script repository directory or by downloading the scripts linked below.  Here an example script is provideded that generates the bmrb in 2.1 format directly from the sparky resonance list 'rl' and the protein sequences.  The script validates and computes the completeness statistics for the generated chemical shift list.  As modifications are made in the sparky project the operation is repeated until a final bmrb file is achieved.

cp test_bmrb.bmrb HsR50_bb.bmrb
rm test_bmrb.bmrb


Three scripts are run: 1) sparkyRL2bmrb.pl, 2) missing_shifts.pl, and 3) validate_assignments.pl. In addition, a bmrb parsing module BMRBParsing.pm is called that interprets the sequence in single letter code and returns numbering in the bmrb file, in this case starting from residue 1.

Newer file versions are available in later versions of the AutoAssign program that should handle bmrb 3.1 format.


Output interpretation

The output interpretation is straightforward. A view of the output for res. 189-191 from the validation script is shown below, the summary of errors at the bottom of the file provides quick list of overall problems to the scientist:

T181    HA = 2.217(S),     Expected =  4.48, Std = 0.5000, ChiSquare = 6.0111e-06

Several issues are flagged in the error summary for this entry, proton frequency out of range and CB for R132 out of range to indicate possible mis-assignment.


Below is a view of the missing_shift.pl script.  For the protein in the example, backbone assignment only was conducted (unlisted atoms are present in the bmrb):

D189:    HB2  HB3 
L190:    CD1  CD2  CG  HB2  HB3  HD1  HD2  HG 
E191:    CG  HB2  HB3  HG2  HG3
