Molecular phylogeny of the ETS gene family. (2/38700)

We have constructed a molecular phylogeny of the ETS gene family. By distance and parsimony analysis of the ETS conserved domains we show that the family containing so far 29 different genes in vertebrates can be divided into 13 groups of genes namely ETS, ER71, GABP, PEA3, ERG, ERF, ELK, DETS4, ELF, ESE, TEL, YAN, SPI. Since the three dimensional structure of the ETS domain has revealed a similarity with the winged-helix-turn-helix proteins, we used two of them (CAP and HSF) to root the tree. This allowed us to show that the family can be divided into five subfamilies: ETS, DETS4, ELF, TEL and SPI. The ETS subfamily comprises the ETS, ER71, GABP, PEA3, ERG, ERF and the ELK groups which appear more related to each other than to any other ETS family members. The fact that some members of these subfamilies were identified in early metazoans such as diploblasts and sponges suggests that the diversification of ETS family genes predates the diversification of metazoans. By the combined analysis of both the ETS and the PNT domains, which are conserved in some members of the family, we showed that the GABP group, and not the ERG group, is the one most closely related to the ETS group. We also observed that the speed of accumulation of mutations in the various genes of the family is highly variable. Noticeably, paralogous members of the ELK group exhibit strikingly different evolutionary speed suggesting that the evolutionary pressure they support is very different.  (+info)

Crystal structure of MHC class II-associated p41 Ii fragment bound to cathepsin L reveals the structural basis for differentiation between cathepsins L and S. (3/38700)

The lysosomal cysteine proteases cathepsins S and L play crucial roles in the degradation of the invariant chain during maturation of MHC class II molecules and antigen processing. The p41 form of the invariant chain includes a fragment which specifically inhibits cathepsin L but not S. The crystal structure of the p41 fragment, a homologue of the thyroglobulin type-1 domains, has been determined at 2.0 A resolution in complex with cathepsin L. The structure of the p41 fragment demonstrates a novel fold, consisting of two subdomains, each stabilized by disulfide bridges. The first subdomain is an alpha-helix-beta-strand arrangement, whereas the second subdomain has a predominantly beta-strand arrangement. The wedge shape and three-loop arrangement of the p41 fragment bound to the active site cleft of cathepsin L are reminiscent of the inhibitory edge of cystatins, thus demonstrating the first example of convergent evolution observed in cysteine protease inhibitors. However, the different fold of the p41 fragment results in additional contacts with the top of the R-domain of the enzymes, which defines the specificity-determining S2 and S1' substrate-binding sites. This enables inhibitors based on the thyroglobulin type-1 domain fold, in contrast to the rather non-selective cystatins, to exhibit specificity for their target enzymes.  (+info)

A single membrane-embedded negative charge is critical for recognizing positively charged drugs by the Escherichia coli multidrug resistance protein MdfA. (4/38700)

The nature of the broad substrate specificity phenomenon, as manifested by multidrug resistance proteins, is not yet understood. In the Escherichia coli multidrug transporter, MdfA, the hydrophobicity profile and PhoA fusion analysis have so far identified only one membrane-embedded charged amino acid residue (E26). In order to determine whether this negatively charged residue may play a role in multidrug recognition, we evaluated the expression and function of MdfA constructs mutated at this position. Replacing E26 with the positively charged residue lysine abolished the multidrug resistance activity against positively charged drugs, but retained chloramphenicol efflux and resistance. In contrast, when the negative charge was preserved in a mutant with aspartate instead of E26, chloramphenicol recognition and transport were drastically inhibited; however, the mutant exhibited almost wild-type multidrug resistance activity against lipophilic cations. These results suggest that although the negative charge at position 26 is not essential for active transport, it dictates the multidrug resistance character of MdfA. We show that such a negative charge is also found in other drug resistance transporters, and its possible significance regarding multidrug resistance is discussed.  (+info)

Anopheles gambiae Ag-STAT, a new insect member of the STAT family, is activated in response to bacterial infection. (5/38700)

A new insect member of the STAT family of transcription factors (Ag-STAT) has been cloned from the human malaria vector Anopheles gambiae. The domain involved in DNA interaction and the SH2 domain are well conserved. Ag-STAT is most similar to Drosophila D-STAT and to vertebrate STATs 5 and 6, constituting a proposed ancient class A of the STAT family. The mRNA is expressed at all developmental stages, and the protein is present in hemocytes, pericardial cells, midgut, skeletal muscle and fat body cells. There is no evidence of transcriptional activation following bacterial challenge. However, bacterial challenge results in nuclear translocation of Ag-STAT protein in fat body cells and induction of DNA-binding activity that recognizes a STAT target site. In vitro treatment with pervanadate (vanadate and H2O2) translocates Ag-STAT to the nucleus in midgut epithelial cells. This is the first evidence of direct participation of the STAT pathway in immune responses in insects.  (+info)

Assembly requirements of PU.1-Pip (IRF-4) activator complexes: inhibiting function in vivo using fused dimers. (6/38700)

Gene expression in higher eukaryotes appears to be regulated by specific combinations of transcription factors binding to regulatory sequences. The Ets factor PU.1 and the IRF protein Pip (IRF-4) represent a pair of interacting transcription factors implicated in regulating B cell-specific gene expression. Pip is recruited to its binding site on DNA by phosphorylated PU.1. PU.1-Pip interaction is shown to be template directed and involves two distinct protein-protein interaction surfaces: (i) the ets and IRF DNA-binding domains; and (ii) the phosphorylated PEST region of PU.1 and a lysine-requiring putative alpha-helix in Pip. Thus, a coordinated set of protein-protein and protein-DNA contacts are essential for PU.1-Pip ternary complex assembly. To analyze the function of these factors in vivo, we engineered chimeric repressors containing the ets and IRF DNA-binding domains connected by a flexible POU domain linker. When stably expressed, the wild-type fused dimer strongly repressed the expression of a rearranged immunoglobulin lambda gene, thereby establishing the functional importance of PU.1-Pip complexes in B cell gene expression. Comparative analysis of the wild-type dimer with a series of mutant dimers distinguished a gene regulated by PU.1 and Pip from one regulated by PU.1 alone. This strategy should prove generally useful in analyzing the function of interacting transcription factors in vivo, and for identifying novel genes regulated by such complexes.  (+info)

Analysis of two cosmid clones from chromosome 4 of Drosophila melanogaster reveals two new genes amid an unusual arrangement of repeated sequences. (7/38700)

Chromosome 4 from Drosophila melanogaster has several unusual features that distinguish it from the other chromosomes. These include a diffuse appearance in salivary gland polytene chromosomes, an absence of recombination, and the variegated expression of P-element transgenes. As part of a larger project to understand these properties, we are assembling a physical map of this chromosome. Here we report the sequence of two cosmids representing approximately 5% of the polytenized region. Both cosmid clones contain numerous repeated DNA sequences, as identified by cross hybridization with labeled genomic DNA, BLAST searches, and dot matrix analysis, which are positioned between and within the transcribed sequences. The repetitive sequences include three copies of the mobile element Hoppel, one copy of the mobile element HB, and 18 DINE repeats. DINE is a novel, short repeated sequence dispersed throughout both cosmid sequences. One cosmid includes the previously described cubitus interruptus (ci) gene and two new genes: that a gene with a predicted amino acid sequence similar to ribosomal protein S3a which is consistent with the Minute(4)101 locus thought to be in the region, and a novel member of the protein family that includes plexin and met-hepatocyte growth factor receptor. The other cosmid contains only the two short 5'-most exons from the zinc-finger-homolog-2 (zfh-2) gene. This is the first extensive sequence analysis of noncoding DNA from chromosome 4. The distribution of the various repeats suggests its organization is similar to the beta-heterochromatic regions near the base of the major chromosome arms. Such a pattern may account for the diffuse banding of the polytene chromosome 4 and the variegation of many P-element transgenes on the chromosome.  (+info)

The mouse Aire gene: comparative genomic sequencing, gene organization, and expression. (8/38700)

Mutations in the human AIRE gene (hAIRE) result in the development of an autoimmune disease named APECED (autoimmune polyendocrinopathy candidiasis ectodermal dystrophy; OMIM 240300). Previously, we have cloned hAIRE and shown that it codes for a putative transcription-associated factor. Here we report the cloning and characterization of Aire, the murine ortholog of hAIRE. Comparative genomic sequencing revealed that the structure of the AIRE gene is highly conserved between human and mouse. The conceptual proteins share 73% homology and feature the same typical functional domains in both species. RT-PCR analysis detected three splice variant isoforms in various mouse tissues, and interestingly one isoform was conserved in human, suggesting potential biological relevance of this product. In situ hybridization on mouse and human histological sections showed that AIRE expression pattern was mainly restricted to a few cells in the thymus, calling for a tissue-specific function of the gene product.  (+info)

In a computed protein multiple sequence alignment, the coreness of a column is the fraction of its substitutions that are in so-called core columns of the gold-standard reference alignment of its proteins. In benchmark suites of protein reference alignments, the core columns of the reference alignment are those that can be confidently labeled as correct, usually due to all residues in the column being sufficiently close in the spatial superposition of the known three-dimensional structures of the proteins. Typically the accuracy of a protein multiple sequence alignment that has been computed for a benchmark is only measured with respect to the core columns of the reference alignment. When computing an alignment in practice, however, a reference alignment is not known, so the coreness of its columns can only be predicted. We develop for the first time a predictor of column coreness for protein multiple sequence alignments. This allows us to predict which columns of a computed alignment are core, and
There is an increasing demand to assemble and align large-scale biological sequence data sets. The commonly used multiple sequence alignment programs are still limited in their ability to handle very large amounts of sequences because the system lacks a scalable high-performance computing (HPC) environment with a greatly extended data storage capacity. We designed ClustalXeed, a software system for multiple sequence alignment with incremental improvements over previous versions of the ClustalX and ClustalW-MPI software. The primary advantage of ClustalXeed over other multiple sequence alignment software is its ability to align a large family of protein or nucleic acid sequences. To solve the conventional memory-dependency problem, ClustalXeed uses both physical random access memory (RAM) and a distributed file-allocation system for distance matrix construction and pair-align computation. The computation efficiency of disk-storage system was markedly improved by implementing an efficient load-balancing
Multiple sequence alignment (MSA) is an extremely useful tool for molecular and evolutionary biology and there are several programs and algorithms available for this purpose. Although previous studies have compared the alignment accuracy of different MSA programs, their computational time and memory usage have not been systematically evaluated. Given the unprecedented amount of data produced by next generation deep sequencing platforms, and increasing demand for large-scale data analysis, it is imperative to optimize the application of software. Therefore, a balance between alignment accuracy and computational cost has become a critical indicator of the most suitable MSA program. We compared both accuracy and cost of nine popular MSA programs, namely CLUSTALW, CLUSTAL OMEGA, DIALIGN-TX, MAFFT, MUSCLE, POA, Probalign, Probcons and T-Coffee, against the benchmark alignment dataset BAliBASE and discuss the relevance of some implementations embedded in each programs algorithm. Accuracy of alignment was
Large nucleotide sequence datasets are becoming increasingly common objects of comparison. Complete bacterial genomes are reported almost everyday. This creates challenges for developing new multiple sequence alignment methods. Conventional multiple alignment methods are based on pairwise alignment and/or progressive alignment techniques. These approaches have performance problems when the number of sequences is large and when dealing with genome scale sequences. We present a new method of multiple sequence alignment, called MISHIMA (Method for Inferring Sequence History In terms of Multiple Alignment), that does not depend on pairwise sequence comparison. A new algorithm is used to quickly find rare oligonucleotide sequences shared by all sequences. Divide and conquer approach is then applied to break the sequences into fragments that can be aligned independently by an external alignment program. These partial alignments are assembled together to form a complete alignment of the original sequences.
CLUSTAL-W is currently one of the most popular automated multiple sequence alignment tools. CLUSTAL-W calculates a distance matrix for the sequences that are to be aligned. The distance matrix is then used to generate a phylogenetic tree that is used to guide the series of global alignments needed to create the multiple alignment. This is referred to as progressive alignment. Mutliple sequence alignments may also be created by hand and involve gapped or ungapped sequences. Typically, gapped alignments are used for full protein sequences, whereas ungapped alignments may be used to identify protein domains or motifs (See BLOCKS database).. Other multiple sequence alignment methods include DIALIGN, T-Coffee, and POA (Lassman and Sonnhammer, 2002).. ...

This article introduces a new interface for T-Coffee, a consistency-based multiple sequence alignment program. This interface provides an easy and intuitive access to the most popular functionality of the package. These include the default T-Coffee mode for protein and nucleic acid sequences, the M-Coffee mode that allows combining the output of any other aligners, and template-based modes of T-Coffee that deliver high accuracy alignments while using structural or homology derived templates.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Grouping of amino acid types and extraction of amino acid properties from multiple sequence alignments using variance maximization. AU - Wrabl, James O.. AU - Grishin, Nick V.. PY - 2005/11/15. Y1 - 2005/11/15. N2 - Understanding of amino acid type co-occurrence in trusted multiple sequence alignments is a prerequisite for improved sequence alignment and remote homology detection algorithms. Two objective approaches were used to investigate co-occurrence, both based on variance maximization of the weighted residue frequencies in columns taken from a large alignment database. The first approach discretely grouped amino acid types, and the second approach extracted orthogonal properties of amino acids using principal components analysis. The grouping results corresponded to amino acid physical properties such as side chain hydrophobicity, size, or backbone flexibility, and an optimal arrangement of approximately eight groups was observed. However, interpretation of the orthogonal ...
CombAlign is a new Python code that generates a gapped, multiple structure-based sequence alignment (MSSA) given a set of pairwise structure-based sequence alignments. CombAlign has utility in assisting the user in distinguishing structurally conserved versus divergent regions on a reference protein structure relative to other closely related structures. The method for combining multiple pairwise alignments is straightforward, involving the recording of pre-computed residue-residue correspondences between positions on the reference protein and each compared structure, and insertion of non-redundant gaps, as needed, to reflect amino-acid deletions or structural divergence in the reference relative to one or more compared structures.. CombAlign is not intended for use in applications for which greater benefit would be provided using a multiple structure alignment as generated by the vast majority of open-source programs [20], nor does it propose to address matters of protein evolution or function ...
ALL is a high speed, large data set sequence alignment tool for Pairwise sequence alignment and Multiple Sequence Alignment (MSA). This tool processes both Protein and Nucleotide local sequence alignments. The type of sequence is automatically recognized. Any printable character set can be used except reserved characters.
DNA sequence alignment is a critical step in identifying homology between organisms. The most widely used alignment program, ClustalW, is known to suffer from the local minima problem, where suboptimal guide trees produce incorrect gap insertions. The optimization alignment approach, has been shown to be effective in combining alignment and phylogenetic search in order to avoid the problems associated with poor guide trees. The optimization alignment algorithm operates at a small grain size, aligning each tree found, wasting time producing multiple sequence alignments for suboptimal trees. This research develops and analyzes a large grain size algorithm for optimization alignment that iterates through steps of alignment and phylogeny search, thus improving the quality of guide trees used for computation of multiple sequence alignments and eliminating computation of multiple sequence alignments for sub-optimal guide trees. Local minima are avoided by the use of stochastic search methods. Large Grain Size
Multiple sequence alignments (MSAs) are essential in most bioinformatics analyses that involve comparing homologous sequences. The exact way of computing an optimal alignment between N sequences has a computational complexity of O(LN) for N sequences of length L making it prohibitive for even small numbers of sequences. Most automatic methods are based on the progressive alignment heuristic (Hogeweg and Hesper, 1984), which aligns sequences in larger and larger subalignments, following the branching order in a guide tree. With a complexity of roughly O(N2), this approach can routinely make alignments of a few thousand sequences of moderate length, but it is tough to make alignments much bigger than this. The progressive approach is a greedy algorithm where mistakes made at the initial alignment stages cannot be corrected later. To counteract this effect, the consistency principle was developed (Notredame et al, 2000). This has allowed the production of a new generation of more accurate ...

Accurate sequence alignments of distantly related proteins are crucial for the better understanding of proteins at their family/superfamily level. However, such alignments of distantly related proteins are often hard to obtain by automatic multiple sequence alignment programs. Hence, we suggest a protocol that permits the reliable sequence alignment of distantly related proteins whose structural information is available. This protocol employs two stages of structure-based sequence alignments in order to obtain reliable alignments. The method proposed is clearly suited to work for protein structural members with distant relationships. We further propose a novel assessment of the derived alignments using the measurements of the structural variations and the percentage secondary structural equivalences. This structure-based sequence alignment protocol can be employed for a single superfamily or for a large number of structural domain superfamilies in a near-automatic and rapid manner..

Multiple sequence alignment remains a crucial method for understanding the function of groups of related nucleic acid and protein sequences. However, it is known that automatic multiple sequence alignments can often be improved by manual editing. Therefore, tools are needed to view and edit multiple sequence alignments.
Genetic sequence alignment is the basis of many evolutionary and comparative studies, and errors in alignments lead to errors in the interpretation of evolutionary information in genomes. Traditional multiple sequence alignment methods disregard the phylogenetic implications of gap patterns that they create and infer systematically biased alignments with excess deletions and substitutions, too few insertions, and implausible insertion-deletion-event histories. We present a method that prevents these systematic errors by recognizing insertions and deletions as distinct evolutionary events. We show theoretically and practically that this improves the quality of sequence alignments and downstream analyses over a wide range of realistic alignment problems. These results suggest that insertions and sequence turnover are more common than is currently thought and challenge the conventional picture of sequence evolution and mechanisms of functional and structural changes.. ...
Evaluation Measures of Multiple Sequence Alignments - Multiple sequence alignments (MSAs) are frequently used in the study of families of protein sequences or DNA/RNA sequences. They are a fundamental tool for the understanding of the structure, functionality and, ultimately, the evolution of proteins. A new algorithm, the Circular Sum (CS) method, is presented for formally evaluating the quality of an MSA. It is based on the use of a solution to the Traveling Salesman Problem, which identi es a circular tour through an evolutionary tree connecting the sequences in a protein family. With this approach, the calculation of an evolutionary tree and the errors that it would introduce can be avoided altogether. The algorithm gives an upper bound, the best score that can possibly be achieved by any MSA for a given set of protein sequences. Alternatively, if presented with a speci c MSA, the algorithm provides a formal score for the MSA, which serves as an absolute measure of the quality of the MSA. The CS
The necessary use of heuristics for multiple alignment means that for an arbitrary set of proteins, there is always a good chance that an alignment will contain errors. For example, an evaluation of several leading alignment programs using the BAliBase benchmark found that at least 24% of all pairs of aligned amino acids were incorrectly aligned.[38] These errors can arise because of unique insertions into one or more regions of sequences, or through some more complex evolutionary process leading to proteins that do not align easily by sequence alone. As the number of sequence and their divergence increases many more errors will be made simply because of the heuristic nature of MSA algorithms. Multiple sequence alignment viewers enable alignments to be visually reviewed, often by inspecting the quality of alignment for annotated functional sites on two or more sequences. Many also enable the alignment to be edited to correct these (usually minor) errors, in order to obtain an optimal curated ...

Identification of regions in multiple sequence alignments thermodynamically suitable for targeting by consensus oligonucleotides: application to HIV genome - Background: Computer programs for the generation of multiple sequence alignments such as Clustal W allow detection of regions that are most conserved among many sequence variants. However, even for regions that are equally conserved, their potential utility as hybridization targets varies. Mismatches in sequence variants are more disruptive in some duplexes than in others. Additionally, the propensity for self-interactions amongst oligonucleotides targeting conserved regions differs and the structure of target regions themselves can also influence hybridization efficiency. There is a need to develop software that will employ thermodynamic selection criteria for finding optimal hybridization targets in related sequences. Results: A new scheme and new software for optimal detection of oligonucleotide hybridization targets common to families of

In the initial stage of genomic sequence analysis, a biologist is usually faced with the questions of how to choose the best tool to align sequences of interest and how to analyze and visualize the alignment results, and then with the question of whether poorly aligned regions produced by the tool are indeed not homologous or are just results due to inappropriate alignment tools or scoring systems used.

Sequence similarity with experimentally characterized gene products, as determined by alignments, either pairwise or multiple (tools such as BLAST, ClustalW, MUSCLE). An entry in the with field is mandatory. The ISA code is a sub-category of the ISS code. It should be used whenever a sequence alignment is the basis for making an annotation, but only when a curator has manually reviewed the alignment and choice of GO term or if the information is in a published paper, the authors have manually reviewed the evidence. Such alignments may be pairwise alignments (the alignment of two sequences to one another) or multiple alignments (the alignment of 3 or more sequences to one another). BLAST produces pairwise alignments and any annotations based solely on the evaluation of BLAST results should use this code. GO policy states that in order to assert that a query protein has the same function as a match protein, the match protein MUST be experimentally characterized. This prevents transitive annotation ...
Description:. An X-drop within an alignment, where X,0, is a region of consecutive columns scoring less than -X. Alignments containing no such X-drop are called X-alignments. Obviously, X-alignments avoid the first problem that local alignments contain internal segments scoring less than -X. A normal alignment is an alignment where each prefix or suffix has a non-negative score. Such an alignment is called maximal if it is not contained in any longer normal alignment. Maximal normal alignments clearly avoid the second problem that an entire alignment scores less than a prefix or suffix. The algorithm proposed by Zhang et al. constructs a tree that allows to decompose an alignment into all X-full subalignments where X-full refers to subalignments that are maximal normal alignments and X-alignments. The tree encodes all X-full alignments for all X greater or equal to 0. Hence, the decomposition corresponding to any particular value of X can be readily extracted from the tree. The goal of this ...

The feasibility of predicting the global fold of small proteins by incorporating predicted secondary and tertiary restraints into ab initio folding simulations has been demonstrated on a test set comprised of 20 non-homologous proteins, of which one was a blind prediction of target 42 in the recent CASP2 contest. These proteins contain from 37 to 100 residues and represent all secondary structural classes and a representative variety of global topologies. Secondary structure restraints are provided by the PHD secondary structure prediction algorithm that incorporates multiple sequence information. Predicted tertiary restraints are derived from multiple sequence alignments via a two-step process. First, seed side-chain contacts are identified from correlated mutation analysis, and then a threading-based algorithm is used to expand the number of these seed contacts. A lattice-based reduced protein model and a folding algorithm designed to incorporate these predicted restraints is described. ...

Here we present the program discomark, which streamlines the development of nuclear DNA (nDNA) markers from whole-genome (or whole-transcriptome) sequencing data, combining local alignment, alignment trimming, reference mapping and primer design based on multiple sequence alignments to design primer pairs from input orthologous sequences. To demonstrate the suitability of discomark, we designed markers for two groups of species, one consisting of closely related species and one group of distantly related species. For the closely related members of the species complex of Cloeon dipterum s.l. (Insecta, Ephemeroptera), the program discovered a total of 78 markers. Among these, we selected eight markers for amplification and Sanger sequencing. The exon sequence alignments (2526 base pairs) were used to reconstruct a well-supported phylogeny and to infer clearly structured haplotype ...
In a previous paper, we introduced MUSCLE, a new program for creating multiple alignments of protein sequences, giving a brief summary of the algorithm and showing MUSCLE to achieve the highest scores reported to date on four alignment accuracy benchmarks. Here we present a more complete discussion of the algorithm, describing several previously unpublished techniques that improve biological accuracy and / or computational complexity. We introduce a new option, MUSCLE-fast, designed for high-throughput applications. We also describe a new protocol for evaluating objective functions that align two profiles. We compare the speed and accuracy of MUSCLE with CLUSTALW, Progressive POA and the MAFFT script FFTNS1, the fastest previously published program known to the author. Accuracy is measured using four benchmarks: BAliBASE, PREFAB, SABmark and SMART. We test three variants that offer highest accuracy (MUSCLE with default settings), highest speed (MUSCLE-fast), and a carefully chosen compromise between the
Multiple sequence alignment plays an important role in molecular sequence analysis. An alignment is the arrangement of two (pairwise alignment) or more (multiple alignment) sequences of residues (nucleotides or amino acids) that maximizes the similarities between them. Algorithmically, the problem consists of opening and extending gaps in the sequences to maximize an objective function (measurement of similarity). A simple genetic algorithm was developed and implemented in the software MSA-GA. Genetic algorithms, a class of evolutionary algorithms, are well suited for problems of this nature since residues and gaps are discrete units. An evolutionary algorithm cannot compete in terms of speed with progressive alignment methods but it has the advantage of being able to correct for initially misaligned sequences; which is not possible with the progressive method. This was shown using the BaliBase benchmark, where Clustal-W alignments were used to seed the initial population in MSA-GA, improving outcome.
Problem statement: The parallelization of multiple progressive alignment algorithms is a difficult task. All known methods have strong bottlenecks resulting from synchronization delays. This is even more constraining in distributed memory systems, where message passing also delays the interprocess communication. Despite these drawbacks, parallel computing is becoming increasingly necessary to perform multiple sequence alignment. Approach: In this study, it is introduced a solution for parallelizing multiple progressive alignments in distributed memory systems that overcomes such delays. Results: The proposed approach uses threads to separate actual alignment from synchronization and communication. It also uses a different approach to schedule independent tasks. Conclusion/Recommendations: The approach was intensively tested, producing a performance remarkably better than a largely used algorithm. It is suggested that it can be applied to improve the performance of some multiple alignment tools, ...

We present an application of ABS algorithms for multiple sequence alignment (MSA).

Multiple sequence alignments (MSAs) are used for structural1,2 and evolutionary predictions1,2, but the complexity of aligning large datasets requires the use of approximate solutions3, including the progressive algorithm4. Progressive MSA methods start by aligning the most similar sequences and subsequently incorporate the remaining sequences, from leaf to root, based on a guide tree. Their accuracy declines substantially as the number of sequences is scaled up5. We introduce a regressive algorithm that enables MSA of up to 1.4 million sequences on a standard workstation and substantially improves accuracy on datasets larger than 10,000 sequences. Our regressive algorithm works the other way around from the progressive algorithm and begins by aligning the most dissimilar sequences. It uses an efficient divide-and-conquer strategy to run third-party alignment methods in linear time, regardless of their original complexity. Our approach will enable analyses of extremely large genomic datasets such as the

Biological network alignment aims to find regions of topological and functional (dis)similarities between molecular networks of different species. Then, network alignment can guide the transfer of biological knowledge from well-studied model species to less well-studied species between conserved (aligned) network regions, thus complementing valuable insights that have already been provided by genomic sequence alignment. Here, we review computational challenges behind the network alignment problem, existing approaches for solving the problem, ways of evaluating their alignment quality, and the approaches biomedical applications. We discuss recent innovative efforts of improving the existing view of network alignment. We conclude with open research questions in comparative biological network research that could further our understanding of principles of life, evolution, disease, and therapeutics.

Hi, Im new to programming so forgive me if I say something obviously stupid. Im interested in writing a program to do some primer-design tasks, among other things. The first thing I want the program to do, however, is a multiple sequence alignment. I realise this is like reinventing the wheel, which Id rather not do. Are there a few standard algorithms out there for this task? What about other standard molecualr biology algorithms? Also, maybe someone could suggest a few good beginning references for this sort of programing.

From evolutionary interference, function annotation to structural prediction, protein sequence comparison has provided crucial biological insights. While many sequence alignment algorithms have been developed, existing approaches are often incapable of detecting hidden structural relationships in the twilight zone of low sequence identity. To address this critical problem, we introduce a computational algorithm that performs protein Sequence Alignments from deep-Learning of Structural Alignments (SAdLSA, silent d). The key idea is to implicitly learn the protein folding code from many thousands of structural alignments. We demonstrate that our models trained on Α-helical domains can be successfully transferred to recognize sequences encoding Β-sheet domains. Training and benchmarking on a larger, highly challenging data sets shows significant improvement over established approaches..

Regina Barzilay of MIT and Lillian Lee of Cornell University have developed a computer program that can automatically paraphrase English sentences: The program culls text from online news services on particular topics, determines distinguishing sentence patterns in these clusters, and employs these patterns to generate new sentences that convey the same message with different wording. Potential applications for such a tool include report summarization, document checking for repetition or plagiarism, and a way for authors to automatically rewrite their prose to readers of different backgrounds, which Lee describes as a style dial. Kevin Knight of the University of Southern California remarks that the program may even be able to help facilitate machine translation. Barzilay and Lee tested the program by having a computer categorize Agence France-Presse and Reuters articles according to subject, and then look for sentence clusters possessing similar words and phrases; the researchers used a ...

AU - Christiansen, Henning. PY - 2013. Y1 - 2013. N2 - BackgroundPyrrolysine (the 22nd amino acid) is in certain organisms and under certain circumstances encoded by the amber stop codon, UAG. The circumstances driving pyrrolysine translation are not well understood. The involvement of a predicted mRNA structure in the region downstream UAG has been suggested, but the structure does not seem to be present in all pyrrolysine incorporating genes.ResultsWe propose a strategy to predict pyrrolysine encoding genes in genomes of archaea and bacteria. We cluster open reading frames interrupted by the amber codon based on sequence similarity. We rank these clusters according to several features that may influence pyrrolysine translation. The ranking effects of different features are assessed and we propose a ...
BACKGROUND: The prediction of ancestral protein sequences from multiple sequence alignments is useful for many bioinformatics analyses. Predicting ancestral sequences is not a simple procedure and relies on accurate alignments and phylogenies. Several algorithms exist based on Maximum Parsimony or Maximum Likelihood methods but many current implementations are unable to process residues with gaps, which may represent insertion/deletion (indel) events or sequence fragments.. RESULTS: Here we present a new algorithm, GASP (Gapped Ancestral Sequence Prediction), for predicting ancestral sequences from phylogenetic trees and the corresponding multiple sequence alignments. Alignments may be of any size and contain gaps. GASP first assigns the positions of gaps in the phylogeny before using a likelihood-based approach centred on amino acid substitution matrices to assign ancestral amino acids. Important outgroup information is used by first working down from the tips of the tree to the root, using ...

DIALIGN is a software program for multiple sequence alignment developed by Burkhard Morgensternet al.. While standard alignment methods rely on comparing single residues and imposing gap penalties, DIALIGN constructs pairwise and multiple alignments by comparing entire segments of the sequences. No gap penalty is used. This approach can be used for both global and local alignment, but it is particularly successful in situations where sequences share only local homologies.. The latest version of the program, DIALIGN-TX, is described in Subramanian et al. (2008), Algorithms Mol. Biol. 3:6. A web server for this program is available at Goettingen Bioinformatics Compute Server (GOBICS). A web server for multiple alignment with user-defined constraints (anchor points) as described by Morgenstern et al. (2006), Algorithms Mol. Biol. 1:6 is also available through GOBICS..

Various methods have been developed to explore inter-genomic relationships among plant species. Here, we present a sequence similarity analysis based upon comparison of transcript-assembly and methylation-filtered databases from five plant species and physically anchored rice coding sequences. A comparison of the frequency of sequence alignments, determined by MegaBLAST, between rice coding sequences in TIGR pseudomolecules and annotations vs 4.0 and comprehensive transcript-assembly and methylation-filtered databases from Lolium perenne (ryegrass), Zea mays (maize), Hordeum vulgare (barley), Glycine max (soybean) and Arabidopsis thaliana (thale cress) was undertaken. Each rice pseudomolecule was divided into 10 segments, each containing 10% of the functionally annotated, expressed genes. This indicated a correlation between relative segment position in the rice genome and numbers of alignments with all the queried monocot and dicot plant databases. Colour-coded moving windows of 100 functionally

A key element in evaluating the quality of a pairwise sequence alignment is the substitution matrix, which assigns a score for aligning any possible pair of residues. The theory of amino acid substitution matrices is described in [1], and applied to DNA sequence comparison in [2]. In general, different substitution matrices are tailored to detecting similarities among sequences that are diverged by differing degrees [1-3]. A single matrix may nevertheless be reasonably efficient over a relatively broad range of evolutionary change [1-3]. Experimentation has shown that the BLOSUM-62 matrix [4] is among the best for detecting most weak protein similarities. For particularly long and weak alignments, the BLOSUM-45 matrix may prove superior. A detailed statistical theory for gapped alignments has not been developed, and the best gap costs to use with a given substitution matrix are determined empirically. Short alignments need to be relatively strong (i.e. have a higher percentage of matching ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Seq2Logo: a method for construction and visualization of amino acid binding motifs and sequence profiles including sequence weighting, pseudo counts and two-sided representation of amino acid enrichment and depletion. AU - Thomsen, Martin Christen Frølund. AU - Nielsen, Morten. PY - 2012. Y1 - 2012. N2 - Seq2Logo is a web-based sequence logo generator. Sequence logos are a graphical representation of the information content stored in a multiple sequence alignment (MSA) and provide a compact and highly intuitive representation of the position-specific amino acid composition of binding motifs, active sites, etc. in biological sequences. Accurate generation of sequence logos is often compromised by sequence redundancy and low number of observations. Moreover, most methods available for sequence logo generation focus on displaying the position-specific enrichment of amino acids, discarding the equally valuable information related to amino acid depletion. Seq2logo aims at resolving ...
This track shows multiple alignments of 100 vertebrate species and measurements of evolutionary conservation using two methods (phastCons and phyloP) from the PHAST package, for all species. The multiple alignments were generated using multiz and other tools in the UCSC/Penn State Bioinformatics comparative genomics alignment pipeline. Conserved elements identified by phastCons are also displayed in this track. PHAST/Multiz are built from chains (alignable) and nets (syntenic), see the documentation of the Chain/Net tracks for a description of the complete alignment process. PhastCons is a hidden Markov model-based method that estimates the probability that each nucleotide belongs to a conserved element, based on the multiple alignment. It considers not just each individual alignment column, but also its flanking columns. By contrast, phyloP separately measures conservation at individual columns, ignoring the effects of their neighbors. As a consequence, the phyloP plots have a less smooth ...
Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques is a term first coined by Dalton in the early 1980s. However, Dalton never stops developing the MAT system. Over the years, the work of Phillip Greenman, Serge Gracovetsky and many other visionaries in kinesiology and human performance have been integrated into his training programs. By teaching how to identify and correct dysfunctional, neurologically-driven strain patterns before they become pain patterns, he has created one of the most integrative and complete perspectives on pain management.. MAT practitioners learn how to take clients through a series of sessions in deep tissue therapy that calms hyper-excited nerve receptors. When the pain-generating stimulus is effectively interrupted, new memories can be programmed into muscle cells by inhibiting the chemical activation of pain, which allows the brain to downgrade its signals for chronic protective spasms.. Of course, effective bodywork depends on much more than intellectual knowledge. Daltons program ...
Link to Pubmed [PMID] - 17359063. Phys. Rev. Lett. 2007 Feb;98(7):078101. Alignment algorithms usually rely on simplified models of gaps for computational efficiency. Based on correspondences between alignments and structural models for nucleic acids, and using methods from statistical mechanics, we show that alignments with realistic laws for gaps can be computed with fast algorithms. Improved performances of probabilistic alignments with realistic models of gaps are illustrated. By contrast with optimization-based alignments, such improvements with realistic laws are not observed. General perspectives for biological and physical modelings are mentioned.. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17359063 ...

We present a method for prediction of functional sites in a set of aligned protein sequences. The method selects sites which are both well conserved and clustered together in space, as inferred from the 3D structures of proteins included in the alignment. We tested the method using 86 alignments from the NCBI CDD database, where the sites of experimentally determined ligand and/or macromolecular interactions are annotated. In agreement with earlier investigations, we found that functional site predictions are most successful when overall background sequence conservation is low, such that sites under evolutionary constraint become apparent. In addition, we found that averaging of conservation values across spatially clustered sites improves predictions under certain conditions: that is, when overall conservation is relatively high and when the site in question involves a large macromolecular binding interface. Under these conditions it is better to look for clusters of conserved sites than to ...

alignment of short DNA sequences The package provices a reimplementation of the Nearest Alignment Space Termination tool in Python. It was prepared for next generation sequencers. Given a set of sequences and a template alignment, PyNAST will align the input sequences against the template alignment, and return a multiple sequence alignment which contains the same number of positions (or columns) as the template alignment. This facilitates the analysis of new sequences in the context of existing alignments, and additional data derived from existing alignments such as phylogenetic trees. Because any protein or nucleic acid sequences and template alignments can be provided, PyNAST is not limited to the analysis of 16s rDNA sequences. ...
Bioinformatics is currently faced with very large-scale data sets that lead to computational jobs, especially sequence similarity searches, that can take absurdly long times to run. For example, the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) Basic Local Alignment Search Tool (BLAST and BLAST+) suite, which is by far the most widely used tool for rapid similarity searching among nucleic acid or amino acid sequences, is highly central processing unit (CPU) intensive. While the BLAST suite of programs perform searches very rapidly, they have the potential to be accelerated. In recent years, distributed computing environments have become more widely accessible and used due to the increasing availability of high-performance computing (HPC) systems. Therefore, simple solutions for data parallelization are needed to expedite BLAST and other sequence analysis tools. However, existing software for parallel sequence similarity searches often requires extensive computational experience and skill ...

Traditionally, multiple sequence alignment algorithms use computationally complex heuristics to align the sequences. Unfortunately, the use of heuristics do not guarantee global optimization as it would be prohibitively computationally expensive to achieve an optimal alignment. This is due in part to the sheer size of the genome, which consists of roughly three billion base pairs, and the increasing computational complexity resulting from each additional sequence in an alignment.. ...
