The ADA complex is a distinct histone acetyltransferase complex in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. (1/5206)

We have identified two Gcn5-dependent histone acetyltransferase (HAT) complexes from Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the 0.8-MDa ADA complex and the 1.8-MDa SAGA complex. The SAGA (Spt-Ada-Gcn5-acetyltransferase) complex contains several subunits which also function as part of other protein complexes, including a subset of TATA box binding protein-associated factors (TAFIIs) and Tra1. These observations raise the question of whether the 0.8-MDa ADA complex is a subcomplex of SAGA or whether it is a distinct HAT complex that also shares subunits with SAGA. To address this issue, we sought to determine if the ADA complex contained subunits that are not present in the SAGA complex. In this study, we report the purification of the ADA complex over 10 chromatographic steps. By a combination of mass spectrometry analysis and immunoblotting, we demonstrate that the adapter proteins Ada2, Ada3, and Gcn5 are indeed integral components of ADA. Furthermore, we identify the product of the S. cerevisiae gene YOR023C as a novel subunit of the ADA complex and name it Ahc1 for ADA HAT complex component 1. Biochemical functions of YOR023C have not been reported. However, AHC1 in high copy numbers suppresses the cold sensitivity caused by particular mutations in HTA1 (I. Pinto and F. Winston, personal communication), which encodes histone H2A (J. N. Hirschhorn et al., Mol. Cell. Biol. 15:1999-2009, 1995). Deletion of AHC1 disrupted the integrity of the ADA complex but did not affect SAGA or give rise to classic Ada(-) phenotypes. These results indicate that Gcn5, Ada2, and Ada3 function as part of a unique HAT complex (ADA) and represent shared subunits between this complex and SAGA.  (+info)

Inhibition of src family kinases by a combinatorial action of 5'-AMP and small heat shock proteins, identified from the adult heart. (2/5206)

Src family kinases are implicated in cellular proliferation and transformation. Terminally differentiated myocytes have lost the ability to proliferate, indicating the existence of a down-regulatory mechanism(s) for these mitogenic kinases. Here we show that feline cardiomyocyte lysate contains thermostable components that inhibit c-Src kinase in vitro. This inhibitory activity, present predominantly in heart tissue, involves two components acting combinatorially. After purification by sequential chromatography, one component was identified by mass and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopies as 5'-AMP, while the other was identified by peptide sequencing as a small heat shock protein (sHSP). 5'-AMP and to a lesser extent 5'-ADP inhibit c-Src when combined with either HSP-27 or HSP-32. Other HSPs, including alphaB-crystallin, HSP-70, and HSP-90, did not exhibit this effect. The inhibition, observed preferentially on Src family kinases and independent of the Src tyrosine phosphorylation state, occurs via a direct interaction of the c-Src catalytic domain with the inhibitory components. Our study indicates that sHSPs increase the affinity of 5'-AMP for the c-Src ATP binding site, thereby facilitating the inhibition. In vivo, elevation of ATP levels in the cardiomyocytes results in the tyrosine phosphorylation of cellular proteins including c-Src at the activatory site, and this effect is blocked when the 5'-AMP concentration is raised. Thus, this study reveals a novel role for sHSPs and 5'-AMP in the regulation of Src family kinases, presumably for the maintenance of the terminally differentiated state.  (+info)

Sperm chromatin decondensation by template activating factor I through direct interaction with basic proteins. (3/5206)

Template activating factor I (TAF-I) was originally identified as a host factor required for DNA replication and transcription of adenovirus genome complexed with viral basic proteins. Purified TAF-I was shown to bind to core histones and stimulate transcription from nucleosomal templates. Human TAF-I consists of two acidic proteins, TAF-Ialpha and TAF-Ibeta, which differ from each other only in their amino-terminal regions. Here, we report that TAF-I decondenses demembraned Xenopus sperm chromatin. Human TAF-Ibeta has a chromatin decondensation activity comparable to that of NAP-I, another histone binding protein, whereas TAF-Ialpha has only a weak activity. Analysis of molecular mechanisms underlying the chromatin decondensation by TAF-I revealed that TAF-I interacts directly with sperm basic proteins. Deletion of the TAF-I carboxyl-terminal acidic region abolishes the decondensation activity. Interestingly, the acidic region itself is not sufficient for decondensation, since an amino acid substitution mutant in the dimerization domain of TAF-I which has the intact acidic region does not support chromatin decondensation. We detected the beta form of TAF-I in Xenopus oocytes and eggs by immunoblotting, and the cloning of its cDNA led us to conclude that Xenopus TAF-Ibeta also decondenses sperm chromatin. These results suggest that TAF-I plays a role in remodeling higher-order chromatin structure as well as nucleosomal structure through direct interaction with chromatin basic proteins.  (+info)

Myticin, a novel cysteine-rich antimicrobial peptide isolated from haemocytes and plasma of the mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis. (4/5206)

We report here the isolation of two isoforms of a novel cysteine-rich peptide from haemocytes (isoform A of 4.438 Da and B of 4.562 Da) and plasma (isoform A) of the mussel, Mytilus galloprovincialis. The two molecules display antibacterial activity against gram-positive bacteria, whereas only isoform B is active against the fungus Fusarium oxysporum and a gram-negative bacteria Escherichia coli D31. Complete peptide sequences were determined by a combination of Edman degradation, mass spectrometry and cDNA cloning using a haemocyte cDNA library. The mature molecules, named myticins, comprise 40 residues with four intramolecular disulfide bridges and a cysteine array in the primary structure different to that of the previously characterized cysteine-rich antimicrobial peptides. Sequence analysis of the cloned cDNAs revealed that myticin precursors consist of 96 amino acids with a putative signal peptide of 20 amino acids, the antimicrobial peptide sequence and a 36-residue C-terminal extension. This structure suggests that myticins are synthesized as preproproteins and then processed by various proteolytic events before storage of the active peptide in the haemocytes. Myticin precursors are expressed mainly in the haemocytes as revealed by Northern blot analysis.  (+info)

Subunit organization of the abalone Haliotis tuberculata hemocyanin type 2 (HtH2), and the cDNA sequence encoding its functional units d, e, f, g and h. (5/5206)

We have developed a HPLC procedure to isolate the two different hemocyanin types (HtH1 and HtH2) of the European abalone Haliotis tuberculata. On the basis of limited proteolytic cleavage, two-dimensional immunoelectrophoresis, PAGE, N-terminal protein sequencing and cDNA sequencing, we have identified eight different 40-60-kDa functional units (FUs) in HtH2, termed HtH2-a to HtH2-h, and determined their linear arrangement within the elongated 400-kDa subunit. From a Haliotis cDNA library, we have isolated and sequenced a cDNA clone which encodes the five C-terminal FUs d, e, f, g and h of HtH2. As shown by multiple sequence alignments, defg of HtH2 correspond structurally to defg from Octopus dofleini hemocyanin. HtH2-e is the first FU of a gastropod hemocyanin to be sequenced. The new Haliotis hemocyanin sequences are compared to their counterparts in Octopus, Helix pomatia and HtH1 (from the latter, the sequences of FU-f, FU-g and FU-h have recently been determined) and discussed in relation to the recent 2.3 A X-ray structure of FU-g from Octopus hemocyanin and the 15 A three-dimensional reconstruction of the Megathura crenulata hemocyanin didecamer from electron micrographs. This data allows, for the first time, an insight into the evolution of the two functionally different hemocyanin isoforms found in marine gastropods. It appears that they evolved several hundred million years ago within the Prosobranchia, after separation of the latter from the branch leading to the Pulmonata. Moreover, as a structural explanation for the inefficiency of the type 1 hemocyanin to form multidecamers in vivo, the additional N-glycosylation sites in HtH1 compared to HtH2 are discussed.  (+info)

Isolation, characterization and cDNA cloning of nicotianamine synthase from barley. A key enzyme for iron homeostasis in plants. (6/5206)

Basic cellular processes such as electron transport in photosynthesis and respiration require the precise control of iron homeostasis. To mobilize iron, plants have evolved at least two different strategies. The nonproteinogenous amino acid nicotianamine which is synthesized from three molecules of S-adenosyl-L-methionine, is an essential component of both pathways. This compound is missing in the tomato mutant chloronerva, which exhibits severe defects in the regulation of iron metabolism. We report the purification and partial characterization of the nicotianamine synthase from barley roots as well as the cloning of two corresponding gene sequences. The function of the gene sequence has been verified by overexpression in Escherichia coli. Further confirmation comes from reduction of the nicotianamine content and the exhibition of a chloronerva-like phenotype due to the expression of heterologous antisense constructs in transgenic tobacco plants. The native enzyme with an apparent Mr of approximately 105 000 probably represents a trimer of S-adenosyl-L-methionine-binding subunits. A comparison with the recently cloned chloronerva gene of tomato reveals striking sequence homology, providing support for the suggestion that the destruction of the nicotianamine synthase encoding gene is the molecular basis of the tomato mutation.  (+info)

The phosphotransferase system (PTS) of Streptomyces coelicolor identification and biochemical analysis of a histidine phosphocarrier protein HPr encoded by the gene ptsH. (7/5206)

HPr, the histidine-containing phosphocarrier protein of the bacterial phosphotransferase system (PTS) controls sugar uptake and carbon utilization in low-GC Gram-positive bacteria and in Gram-negative bacteria. We have purified HPr from Streptomyces coelicolor cell extracts. The N-terminal sequence matched the product of an S. coelicolor orf, designated ptsH, sequenced as part of the S. coelicolor genome sequencing project. The ptsH gene appears to form a monocistronic operon. Determination of the evolutionary relationship revealed that S. coelicolor HPr is equally distant to all known HPr and HPr-like proteins. The presumptive phosphorylation site around histidine 15 is perfectly conserved while a second possible phosphorylation site at serine 47 is not well-conserved. HPr was overproduced in Escherichia coli in its native form and as a histidine-tagged fusion protein. Histidine-tagged HPr was purified to homogeneity. HPr was phosphorylated by its own enzyme I (EI) and heterologously phosphorylated by EI of Bacillus subtilis and Staphylococcus aureus, respectively. This phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent phosphorylation was absent in an HPr mutant in which histidine 15 was replaced by alanine. Reconstitution of the fructose-specific PTS demonstrated that HPr could efficiently phosphorylate enzyme IIFructose. HPr-P could also phosphorylate enzyme IIGlucose of B. subtilis, enzyme IILactose of S. aureus, and IIAMannitol of E. coli. ATP-dependent phosphorylation was detected with HPr kinase/phosphatase of B. subtilis. These results present the first identification of a gene of the PTS complement of S. coelicolor, providing the basis to elucidate the role(s) of HPr and the PTS in this class of bacteria.  (+info)

Functional phytohemagglutinin (PHA) and Galanthus nivalis agglutinin (GNA) expressed in Pichia pastoris correct N-terminal processing and secretion of heterologous proteins expressed using the PHA-E signal peptide. (8/5206)

Phytohemagglutinin (Phaseolus vulgaris agglutinin; PHA; E- and L-forms) and snowdrop lectin (Galanthus nivalis agglutinin; GNA) were expressed in Pichia pastoris using native signal peptides, or the Saccharomyces alpha-factor preprosequence, to direct proteins into the secretory pathway. PHA and GNA were present as soluble, functional proteins in culture supernatants when expressed from constructs containing the alpha-factor preprosequence. The recombinant lectins, purified by affinity chromatography, agglutinated rabbit erythrocytes at concentrations similar to the respective native lectins. However, incomplete processing of the signal sequence resulted in PHA-E, PHA-L and GNA with heterogenous N-termini, with the majority of the protein containing N-terminal extensions derived from the alpha-factor prosequence. Polypeptides in which most of the alpha-factor prosequence was present were also glycosylated. Inclusion of Glu-Ala repeats at the C-terminal end of the alpha-factor preprosequence led to efficient processing N-terminal to the Glu-Ala sequence, but inefficient removal of the repeats themselves, resulting in polypeptides with heterogenous N-termini still containing N-terminal extensions. In contrast, PHA expressed with the native signal peptide was secreted, correctly processed, and also fully functional. No expression of GNA from a construct containing the native GNA signal peptide was observed. The PHA-E signal peptide directed correct processing and secretion of both GNA and green fluorescent protein (GFP) when used in expression constructs, and is suggested to have general utility for synthesis of correctly processed proteins in Pichia.  (+info)

Remote homology detection is a hard computational problem. Most approaches have trained computational models by using either full protein sequences or multiple sequence alignments (MSA), including all positions. However, when we deal with proteins in the twilight zone we can observe that only some segments of sequences (motifs) are conserved. We introduce a novel logical representation that allows us to represent physico-chemical properties of sequences, conserved amino acid positions and conserved physico-chemical positions in the MSA. From this, Inductive Logic Programming (ILP) finds the most frequent patterns (motifs) and uses them to train propositional models, such as decision trees and support vector machines (SVM). We use the SCOP database to perform our experiments by evaluating protein recognition within the same superfamily. Our results show that our methodology when using SVM performs significantly better than some of the state of the art methods, and comparable to other. However, our
Experimentally determining the subcellular localization of a protein can be a laborious and time consuming task. Immunolabeling or tagging (such as with a green fluorescent protein) to view localization using fluorescence microscope are often used. A high throughput alternative is to use prediction. Through the development of new approaches in computer science, coupled with an increased dataset of proteins of known localization, computational tools can now provide fast and accurate localization predictions for many organisms. This has resulted in subcellular localization prediction becoming one of the challenges being successfully aided by bioinformatics, and machine learning. Many prediction methods now exceed the accuracy of some high-throughput laboratory methods for the identification of protein subcellular localization.[1] Particularly, some predictors have been developed[2] that can be used to deal with proteins that may simultaneously exist, or move between, two or more different ...

Applies a random forest algorithm to automatically learn from and then interpret ultraviolet photodissociation (UVPD) mass spectra, passing results to a hidden Markov model for de novo sequence prediction and scoring. We show this combined strategy provides high-performance de novo peptide sequencing, enabling the de novo sequencing of thousands of peptides from an Escherichia coli lysate at high confidence.
Extensive study has been conducted on the identification of peptide sequences with mass spectrometry. With the development of computer hardware and algorithms, de novo sequencing has drawn attention from researchers for many years. Because it does not require a protein database, de novo sequencing is able to serve as either a complement of database searching or a stand alone method. As shown by Novor \cite{novor}, the speed of de novo sequencing significantly exceeds the speed of protein database searching. Improving the accuracy of de novo sequencing is essential. Overlapping peptides occur quite frequently in a typical heavy chain proteomics sample. In this thesis, we have proposed an algorithm to efficiently and reliably detect the overlapping peptides. In addition, two strategies named labeling and voting are designed to utilize overlapping peptides so as to improve the accuracy of de novo sequencing. According to the results, the effect of our labeling strategy is not obvious with the ...
MOTIVATION Peptide-sequencing methods by mass spectrum use the following two approaches: database searching and de novo sequencing. The database-searching approach is convenient; however, in cases wherein the corresponding sequences are not included in the databases, the exact identification is difficult. On the other hand, in the case of de novo sequencing, no preliminary information is necessary; however, continuous amino acid sequence peaks and the differentiation of these peaks are required. It is, however, very difficult to obtain and differentiate the peaks of all amino acids by using an actual spectrum. We propose a novel de novo sequencing approach using not only mass-to-charge ratio but also ion peak intensity and amino acid cleavage intensity ratio (CIR). RESULTS Our method compensates for any undetectable amino acid peak intervals by estimating the amino acid set and the probability of peak expression based on amino acid CIR. It provides more accurate identification of sequences than the

If you have been following along with the tutorial, by now you have been through several manual de novo sequencing exercises. The one un-blinded, and two blinded sequences have been fairly complete with abundant fragmentation. Just to ground you in reality, this is not always the case, and more often than not the abundance of fragment ions tends to thin near the fringes of the spectrum making it difficult to determine a complete peptide sequence. It also makes it difficult to start a sequence, as your first jump will often be a combination of 2 or 3 amino acids. In addition to this complication, triply charged ions or ions of higher charge states can give fragments of doubly, singly, and triply charge states, making the problem so much more complicated. The de novo problem would seem to lend itself well to a computational solution. Amazingly, until just recently, few if any de novo programs have given satisfactory results leading most experts in the field to say, I can do better by hand. Well, ...

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
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 ...

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 ...

We reformulate the problem in terms of searching paths in a graph. To this goal, let M P denote the set of ion masses m i in input increased with: their complementary masses m P - m i + 2, the mass of the hydrogen, 1, and of its complementary mass m P - 17. By abuse of notation, M P = {m1,...,m n }, where m i ,m j if i ,j.. We build a directed acyclic graph G P = (V, E) as follows. Let a node v i associate to a member m i of M P , and an edge from v i to v j if m j - m i equals the sum of residue masses.. The de novo sequencing problem consists in determining any path from v1 to v n in the graph G P .. Although there is a unique original protein, the de novo sequencing may have in general more solutions (or none). In order to choose one sequence among the possible solutions, researchers have introduced any scoring function [1-3] depending on the masses of the fragments in the spectra. Our algorithm can determine either the solution of maximum score according to any given function or that of ...

One way to understand the molecular mechanism of a cell is to understand the function of each protein encoded in its genome. The function of a protein is largely dependent on the three-dimensional structure the protein assumes after folding. Since the determination of three-dimensional structure experimentally is difficult and expensive, an easier and cheaper approach is for one to look at the primary sequence of a protein and to determine its function by classifying the sequence into the corresponding functional family. In this paper, we propose an effective data mining technique for the multi-class protein sequence classification. For experimentations, the proposed technique has been tested with different sets of protein sequences. Experimental results show that it outperforms other existing protein sequence classifiers and can effectively classify proteins into their corresponding functional families ...
One of the core activities of high-throughput proteomics is the identification of peptides from mass spectra. Some peptides can be identified using spectral matching programs like Sequest or Mascot, but many spectra do not produce high quality database matches. De novo peptide sequencing is an approach to determine partial peptide sequences for some of the unidentified spectra. A drawback of de novo peptide sequencing is that it produces a series of ordered and disordered sequence tags and mass tags rather than a complete, non-degenerate peptide amino acid sequence. This incomplete data is difficult to use in conventional search programs such as BLAST or FASTA. DeNovoID is a program that has been specifically designed to use degenerate amino acid sequence and mass data derived from MS experiments to search a peptide database. Since the algorithm employed depends on the amino acid composition of the peptide and not its sequence, DeNovoID does not have to consider all possible sequences, but ...
Protein 3D structures, determined largely by their amino acid sequences, have been considered as an essential factor for better understanding the function of proteins [1-3]. However, it is exceedingly difficult to directly predict proteins 3D structures from amino acid sequences [4]. Identifying structure properties, such as secondary structure, solvent accessibility or contact number can provide useful insights into the 3D structures [5-7]. Accurate prediction of structural characteristics from the primary sequence is a crucial intermediate step in protein 3D structure prediction [8, 9].. The solvent accessibility (solvent accessible surface area) is defined as the surface region of a residue that is accessible to a rounded solvent while probing the surface of that residue [10]. Solvent burial residues have a particularly strong association with packed amino acids during the folding process [11], and exposed residues give a useful insight into protein-protein interactions and protein stability ...

Protein subcellular localization prediction involves the computational prediction of where a protein resides in a cell. It is an important component of bioinformatics-based prediction of protein function and genome annotation, and can also aid us to identify novel drug targets.. Here we use the subcellular localization dataset of human proteins presented in the study of Chou and Shen (2008) for a demonstration. The complete dataset includes 3,134 protein sequences (2,750 different proteins), classified into 14 human subcellular locations. We selected two classes of proteins as our benchmark dataset. Class 1 contains 325 extracell proteins, and class 2 includes 307 mitochondrion proteins.. First, we load the Rcpi package, then read the protein sequences stored in two separated FASTA files with ...
In order to benefit maximally from large scale molecular biology data generated by recent developments, it is important to proceed in an organized manner by developing databases, interfaces, data visualization and data interpretation tools. Protein subcellular localization and microarray gene expression are two of such fields that require immense computational effort before being used as a roadmap for the experimental biologist. Protein subcellular localization is important for elucidating protein function. We developed an automatically updated searchable and downloadable system called model organisms proteome subcellular localization database (MEP2SL) that hosts predicted localizations and known experimental localizations for nine eukaryotes. MEP2SL localizations highly correlated with high throughput localization experiments in yeast and were shown to have superior accuracies when compared with four other localization prediction tools based on two different datasets. Hence, MEP2SL system may ...

Protein-binding sites prediction lays a foundation for functional annotation of protein and structure-based drug design. As the number of available protein structures increases, structural alignment based algorithm becomes the dominant approach for protein-binding sites prediction. However, the present algorithms underutilize the ever increasing numbers of three-dimensional protein-ligand complex structures (bound protein), and it could be improved on the process of alignment, selection of templates and clustering of template. Herein, we built so far the largest database of bound templates with stringent quality control. And on this basis, bSiteFinder as a protein-binding sites prediction server was developed. By introducing Homology Indexing, Chain Length Indexing, Stability of Complex and Optimized Multiple-Templates Clustering into our algorithm, the efficiency of our server has been significantly improved. Further, the accuracy was approximately 2-10 % higher than that of other algorithms for the
Accurate gene or protein function prediction is a key challenge in the post-genome era. Most current methods perform well on molecular function prediction, but struggle to provide useful annotations relating to biological process functions due to the limited power of sequence-based features in that functional domain. In this work, we systematically evaluate the predictive power of temporal transcription expression profiles for protein function prediction in Drosophila melanogaster. Our results show significantly better performance on predicting protein function when transcription expression profile-based features are integrated with sequence-derived features, compared with the sequence-derived features alone. We also observe that the combination of expression-based and sequence-based features leads to further improvement of accuracy on predicting all three domains of gene function. Based on the optimal feature combinations, we then propose a novel multi-classifier-based function prediction ...
The solvent accessibility of a residue in a protein is a value that represents the solvent exposed surface area of this residue. It is crucial for understanding protein structure and function. As a result of the completion of whole-genome sequencing projects, the sequence-structure gap is rapidly increasing. Importantly, the knowledge of protein structures is a foundation for understanding the mechanism of diseases of living organisms and facilitating discovery of new drugs. The most reliable methods for identification of protein structure are X-ray crystallography techniques, but they are expensive and time-consuming. This leads to a central, yet unsolved study of protein structure prediction in bioinformatics, especially for sequences which do not have a significant sequence similarity with known structures [1]. To predict protein structure, the role of solvent accessibility has been extensively investigated as it is related to the spatial arrangement and packing of amino acids during the ...

Title: A Research on Bioinformatics Prediction of Protein Subcellular Localization. VOLUME: 4 ISSUE: 3. Author(s):Gang Fang, Guirong Tao and Shemin Zhang. Affiliation:Department of Life Science, Xian University of Arts and Science, Xian 710065, China.. Keywords:Bioinformatics, prediction, protein subcellular localization, localizome, proteomics, database. Abstract: Protein subcellular localization is one of the key characteristic to understand its biological function. Proteins are transported to specific organelles and suborganelles after they are synthesized. They take part in cell activity and function efficiently when correctly localized. Inaccurate subcellular localization will have great impact on cellular function. Prediction of protein subcellular localization is one of the important areas in protein function research. Now it becomes the hot issue in bioinformatics. In this review paper, the recent progress on bioinformatics research of protein subcellular localization and its prospect ...
The first linear-time suffix tree algorithm was developed by Weiner in 1973. A more space efficient algorithm was produced by McCreight in 1976, and Ukkonen produced an on-line variant of it in 1995. The key to search speed in a suffix tree is that there is a path from the root for each suffix of the text. This means that at most n comparisons are needed to find a pattern of length n. Lloyd Allison has a detailed introduction to suffix trees, which includes a javascript suffix tree demonstration and a discussion of suffix tree applications. His example uses the string mississippi, which can be decomposed into 12 suffixes (Fig 1). A suffix is a substring that includes the final character of the string, for instance the suffix ippi can be found starting at position 8.. A suffix tree can be either implicit (Fig 2a) or explicit (Fig 2b). Suffixes in an implicit suffix tree can end at an interior node -- making them prefixes of another suffix. For example, in the implicit suffix tree for ...

AU - Liu, Ying. AU - Tian, Xiang. PY - 2012. Y1 - 2012. N2 - This paper explores the pros and cons of reconfigurable computing in the form of FPGAs for high performance efficient computing. In particular, the paper presents the results of a comparative study between three different acceleration technologies, namely, Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs), Graphics Processor Units (GPUs), and IBMs Cell Broadband Engine (Cell BE), in the design and implementation of the widely-used Smith-Waterman pairwise sequence alignment algorithm, with general purpose processors as a base reference implementation. Comparison criteria include speed, energy consumption, and purchase and development costs. The study shows that FPGAs largely outperform all other implementation platforms on performance per watt criterion ...
Hi. Ive been trying to download a multiple sequence alignment from clustal omega as a clustal format file, but whenever I click on the download option, it just opens a new page with only the alignments displayed. I tried downloading the page as a .pdf file and converting it into rtf, but that destroys the formatting. Same thing with simply copy/pasting into a text file. I need a clustal formatted file for use with PriFi ( for designing primers from multiple sequence alignment ). Is there any workaround to this. Or is there something else I can use that does the MSA and the primer design from a multiple sequence fast file. (im using mac os x mavericks ) ...
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. These three available template modes are Expresso for the alignment of protein with a known 3D-Structure, R-Coffee to align RNA sequences with conserved secondary structures and PSI-Coffee to accurately align distantly related sequences using homology extension. The new server benefits from recent improvements of the T-Coffee algorithm and can align up to 150 sequences as long as 10,000 residues and is available from both http://www.tcoffee.org and its main mirror http://tcoffee.crg.cat.
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).. ...
The Dali Domain Dictionary (http://www.ebi.ac.uk/dali/domain) is a numerical taxonomy of all known structures in the Protein Data Bank (PDB). The taxonomy is derived fully automatically from measurements of structural, functional and sequence similarities. Here, we report the extension of the classification to match the traditional four hierarchical levels corresponding to: (i) supersecondary structural motifs (attractors in fold space), (ii) the topology of globular domains (fold types), (iii) remote homologues (functional families) and (iv) homologues with sequence identity above 25% (sequence families). The computational definitions of attractors and functional families are new. In September 2000, the Dali classification contained 10 531 PDB entries comprising 17 101 chains, which were partitioned into five attractor regions, 1375 fold types, 2582 functional families and 3724 domain sequence families. Sequence families were further associated with 99 582 unique homologous sequences in the ...
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
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 ...
This paper presents [email protected], a web-based tool dedicated to the computation of high-quality multiple sequence alignments (MSAs). 3D-Coffee makes it possible to mix protein sequences and structures in order to increase the accuracy of the alignments. Structures can be either provided as PDB identifiers or directly uploaded into the server. Given a set of sequences and structures, pairs of structures are aligned with SAP while sequence-structure pairs are aligned with Fugue. The resulting collection of pairwise alignments is then combined into an MSA with the T-Coffee algorithm. The server and its documentation are available from http://igs-server.cnrs-mrs.fr/Tcoffee/.. ...

New prediction server avaliable: Sigfind - Signal Peptide Prediction Server (Human) at http://www.stepc.gr/~synaptic/sigfind.html (C)opyright 2001 by Martin Reczko (martin at stepc.gr) This software (SIGFIND) predicts signal peptides at the start of protein sequences. A novel neural network learning algorithm is used for prediction. It is trained on the human protein data used for the SIGNALP system described in H.Nielsen, J.Engelbrecht, S.Brunak, and G.von Heijne: Identification of prokaryotic and eukaryotic signal peptides and prediction of their cleavage sites Protein Engineering, vol. 10 no. 1 pp. 1-6, 1997 The SIGNALP data is derived from A.Bairoch and B.Boeckmann: The SWISS-PROT protein sequence data bank: current status, Nucleic Acids Res. 22:3578-3580 (1994). Using the same fivefold crossvalidation as SIGNALP, the 5 networks of SIGFIND (avgerage Mathews correlation coefficiant 0.98) perform better than SIGNALP (avgerage Mathews correlation coefficiant 0.96). It should be noted that ...
Understanding how biomolecules interact is a major task of systems biology. To model protein-nucleic acid interactions, it is important to identify the DNA or RNA-binding residues in proteins. Protein sequence features, including the biochemical property of amino acids and evolutionary information in terms of position-specific scoring matrix (PSSM), have been used for DNA or RNA-binding site prediction. However, PSSM is rather designed for PSI-BLAST searches, and it may not contain all the evolutionary information for modelling DNA or RNA-binding sites in protein sequences. In the present study, several new descriptors of evolutionary information have been developed and evaluated for sequence-based prediction of DNA and RNA-binding residues using support vector machines (SVMs). The new descriptors were shown to improve classifier performance. Interestingly, the best classifiers were obtained by combining the new descriptors and PSSM, suggesting that they captured different aspects of evolutionary
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
