Abstract

Phenylketonuria (PKU) is a genetically inherited disease where the body fails to convert Phenylalanine (Phe) to Tyrosine (Tyr) due to the defective Phenylalanine Hydroxylase (PAH) enzyme, resulting in the elevated blood Phe level causing neurological damage. Of all therapies, Large Neutral Amino Acid (LNAA) supplementation has become a promising approach to the dietary treatment of PKU, where the LNAA compete with Phe for the same L-Type Large Neutral Amino Acid Transporter (LAT1, SLC7A5) across the blood-brain barrier, decreasing brain Phe level. In this study we have designed an easily digestible protein enriched with LNAA (except Phe), using bovine αs1 casein as template by homology modeling. Our challenge was to maximize the LNAAs (except Phe) in the protein model by finding a suitable scaffold for hosting LNAAs, thereby turning the usual concept of homology modeling. Bioinformatics tools like SWISS-MODEL, EXPASY, PROFUNC, I-TASSER, RaptorX, and SAVeS Server were used for the structure prediction, and validation of the designed protein. Out of 63 different models designed, Protein Model-54 was selected based on sequence similarity to template (61.4%), compact 3D structure containing only α-helices and coils without β-sheets (QMEAN score of 0.567), and good in silico digestibility. The molecular weight of protein was 12,094.6 Da. Ramachandran plot revealed that the designed protein contained 89.9% amino acid residues in the favored region with ERRAT score of 88.04. Based on these evaluations, the Protein Model-54 was found to be the best, stable and reliable model which may be of high nutritional significance for PKU patients..
