In 2002 the Serrano lab de novo designed 13 divergent spectrin SH3 core sequences to determine their folding properties . The PERLA-based  redesign included nine nonconsecutive positions resulting in a larger buried hydrophobic volume. The computational design over-packed the core resulting in an expansion of the β-barrel. This was further validated by conducting Ile ! Val mutations which all resulted in strain removal and stabilization. Eleven of the 13 designs folded well with similar characteristics to the folded wild-type.
In the first round, GlyAsn and ProGlyAsn loops were added to turn the discrete helices into a single subunit. In the second round, helix capping was introduced and in the third round nonnative characteristics were eliminated by negative design. Specifically, the 17 residues of the hydrophobic core were repacked using 30 runs of ROC followed by 30 runs of ROC for a subset of six residues. Further, to avoid both clockwise and counterclockwise turning of the helices within the trimer, charged residues were designed to cause electrostatic repulsion and favor only one conformation.
The acquired know-how of the calmodulin-peptide structure and binding characterization was tested by iterative peptide synthesis and characterization. Hence, this early attempt of CPD underscores the need to integrate all available know-how and methods for the requested target as well as the need to combine theory and experiment in an interactive and iterative feedback loop. In 1990 Hecht and Ogden and the Jane and David Richardson lab designed a de novo four-helix bundle, termed Felix . This is an example in which protein design rather than CPD was the leading method.
