One major problem with the existing algorithm for the prediction of protein structural classes is low accuracies for proteins from α/β and α+β classes. In this study, three novel features were rationally designed to model the differences between proteins from these two classes. In combination with other rational designed features, an 11-dimensional vector(More)
O-GlcNAcylation is a ubiquitous post-translational modification of proteins that is involved in the majority of cellular processes and is associated with many diseases. To reduce the workload and increase the relevance of experimental identification of protein O-GlcNAcylation sites, O-GlcNAcPRED, a support vector machine (SVM)-based model, was developed to(More)
Mitochondrial proteins of Plasmodium falciparum are considered as attractive targets for anti-malarial drugs, but the experimental identification of these proteins is a difficult and time-consuming task. Computational prediction of mitochondrial proteins offers an alternative approach. However, the commonly used subcellular location prediction methods are(More)
Protein S-nitrosylation is a reversible post-translational modification by covalent modification on the thiol group of cysteine residues by nitric oxide. Growing evidence shows that protein S-nitrosylation plays an important role in normal cellular function as well as in various pathophysiologic conditions. Because of the inherent chemical instability of(More)
Protein sequences are treated as stochastic processes on the basis of a reduced amino acid alphabet of 10 types of amino acids. The realization of a stochastic process is described by associated transition probability matrix that corresponds to the process uniquely. Then new distances between transition probability matrices are defined for sequences(More)
The main object of this paper is to investigate the Apostol-Bernoulli polynomials and the Apostol-Euler polynomials. We first establish two relationships between the generalized Apostol-Bernoulli and Apostol-Euler polynomials. It can be found that many results obtained before are special cases of these two relationships. Moreover, we have a study on the(More)
N6-methyladenosine (m(6)A) is present ubiquitously in the RNA of living organisms from Escherichia coli to humans. Nonetheless, the exact molecular mechanism of this modification remains unclear. The experimental identification of m(6)A modification is time-consuming and expensive; therefore, bioinformatics tools with high accuracy represent desirable(More)
AIM AND OBJECTIVE Protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTPs) are responsible for protein phosphorylation. Because the level of protein phosphorylation is correlated with tumor transformation, PTPs have been considered as candidate transformation suppressors. In this study, we developed a novel PTP site prediction model, DephosSitePred, based on bi-profile(More)
Protein carbonylation is one of the most important biomarkers of oxidative protein damage and such protein damage is linked to various diseases and aging. It is thus vital that carbonylation sites are identified accurately. In this study, CarSite, a novel bioinformatics tool, was established to identify carbonylation sites in human proteins. The one-sided(More)
