Creative Biolabs is recognized as the world leader for providing the most diverse portfolio of protein design solutions for worldwide customers. We have completed a series of challenges in the past few years. In particular, we have established an advanced computer-based β-sheet surface protein design platform which enables us to offer a series of high-quality services for our worldwide customers.
The β-sheet is a common domain in proteins that plays a key role in mediating protein stability. Recent reports of several groups have shown that the β-sheet can interact with a wide variety of residues, such as solvent-facing residues and β-strands residues. In this condition, more and more researchers are dedicated to understanding the structure and biological features that contribute to β-sheet protein stability. For example, the data suggests that aromatic and glutamate pairs have been broadly used for designing and optimizing β-sheet surface proteins. Meanwhile, there has been considerable effort aiming at re-designing β-sheets that are embedded into folded proteins. Computer-based β-sheet protein design has been considered as a powerful tool for improving sequences based on different types of factors, including hydrogen bonding, electrostatics. The β-sheet surface of TNfn3 has been redesigned by the Rosetta model to optimize protein folding and stability. Moreover, recent studies have indicated that mutations on β-sheet sequences are critical to alter the energy functions of various proteins.

Protein design has been regarded as an effective way to analyze protein structure. Most design efforts have been made for the modified proteins containing the β-sheet surface. Here, Creative Biolabs offers many services to test and develop methods for β-sheet surface protein design. In our computer-based platform, the Rosetta model is commonly used to design α/β protein and stabilize β-sheet proteins. Among them, TNfn3 has been incorporated into β-sheet surface for protein folding and stability. In addition, we also provide a range of approaches to insert salt bridges into neighboring strands of β-sheet surface. These methods can specific pair β-strands with others, which is significant for tertiary folds in protein design. Up to now, we have accumulated extensive experience from the accomplishment of different β-sheets surface protein design projects, during which we have received a lot of recognition and praise from our clients. Therefore, our platform should be beneficial to optimizing the function and structure of β-sheet surface and improving the efficacy and functions in different types of disease treatments.
