Introduction

Proteins are complex biomolecules that play essential roles in almost all the cellular processes. They are necessary for the cell's functioning, signaling, regulation, and structure. All the chemical reactions in the body are catalyzed by proteins. Furthermore, proteins, perform various functions within the organism like DNA replication, providing structure to cells, messenger, transporting molecules, and antibody to fight against pathogens.

The basic building blocks of proteins are amino acids. These amino acids are attached in long linear chains to form the protein bio molecules. Proteins transform from linear chains into unique 3D(tertiary) structures via a process called protein folding, which makes them biologically functional. Sequence of amino acids is key to protein folding and so, not all the linear chain of amino acids forms a stable 3D structure. Few of them remain unfolded and few misfolded. If the protein fails to acquire its native structure, it might be inactive. There are exceptions where misfolded proteins may possess modified or toxic properties. Hence it is vital to understand protein sequence - structure and sequence-function.

The sequence of amino acids in proteins dictate unique shapes / structures and functions of protein. Therefore, protein’s properties can be changed by altering the position of their amino acids. Similarly, substituting a naturally occurring amino acid with a different amino acid, known as mutation, can change the properties of proteins. Changing a particular protein sequence to derive the desired property is protein engineering. It is essential to understand the structure of the protein, and its folding & unfolding capabilities as these are the only ways that will help to determine the usefulness or harmfulness of a particular protein. Protein engineering can also make a protein more thermos - stable, change the substrate specificity, tolerance to extremes of pH and organic solvents.

How Calpion Helps

Calpion has helped many clients enhance the property of protein using cutting-edge technologies. We operate on amino acid sequences to predict a protein's functionality. We automatically extract all the information on proteins using our algorithm rather the and depending on the manual entry

Calpion is using state-of-the-art deep learning algorithms to beat the forefront of technology used for screening a large number of mutations for any protein function. By integrating multiple teams globally for AI, Computational Chemistry, and Protein Synthesis, we can translate the predictions of our algorithms into a reality.

We design and build state-of-the-art Machine Learning models using concepts so image processing, sequence learning, graph neural networks, and GANs, which have helped Calpion to develop the strategies to predict active proteins that are not yet discovered in nature. We focus on AI-based technology to build and get insight into protein engineering, understand the protein's sequence-function and structure-function relationships, and solve the problems that occur on the client's end.

Difficulties in Restructuring Specific Properties of a Protein

Proteins typically contain few hundreds to thousands of amino acids, It is practically impossible to synthesize and characterize every possible sequence of a small protein of even 100 amino acids due to astronomically large number of mutations for the same protein sequence. So, if we want to change a property of the protein, rounds of high-through put screening need to be tried to achieve the desired results. Further more, total number of mutations in a given protein can be very large to synthesize and characterize in the laboratory

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

AI/ML in Protein Evolution

Machine learning(ML) can drastically reduce the time, cost, and effort needed to derive the desired value of the proteins. It can aid in gaining a better understanding of structure and function of proteins. ML models can determine which mutations are essential for a targeted function. ML model can learn the sequence- function relationship of proteins and locks the best performing variant for the next round of optimization cycle. To enhance a particular property of a protein, ML can help to reduce the number of protein variants to be synthesized and the number of experiments that need to be performed in the laboratory, hence cutting the time and cost of the research.
