The cancer diagnostic is a complex process and, sometimes, the specific markers can interfere or produce negative results. Thus, new simple and fast theoretical models are required. One option is the complex network graphs theory that permits us to describe any real system, from the small molecules to the complex genetic, neural or social networks by(More)
The huge amount of new proteins that need a fast enzymatic activity characterization creates demands of protein QSAR theoretical models. The protein parameters that can be used for an enzyme/non-enzyme classification includes the simpler indices such as composition, sequence and connectivity, also called topological indices (TIs) and the computationally(More)
BACKGROUND The NanoSafety Cluster, a cluster of projects funded by the European Commision, identified the need for a computational infrastructure for toxicological data management of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs). Ontologies, open standards, and interoperable designs were envisioned to empower a harmonized approach to European research in nanotechnology.(More)
The number of protein 3D structures without function annotation in Protein Data Bank (PDB) has been steadily increased. This fact has led in turn to an increment of demand for theoretical models to give a quick characterization of these proteins. In this work, we present a new and fast Markov chain model (MCM) to predict the enzyme classification (EC)(More)
Several graph representations have been introduced for different data in theoretical biology. For instance, complex networks based on Graph theory are used to represent the structure and/or dynamics of different large biological systems such as protein-protein interaction networks. In addition, Randic, Liao, Nandy, Basak, and many others developed some(More)
The development of the complex network graphs permits us to describe any real system such as social, neural, computer or genetic networks by transforming real properties in topological indices (TIs). This work uses Randic's star networks in order to convert the protein primary structure data in specific topological indices that are used to construct a(More)
Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) can be used as inputs in disease computational studies such as pattern searching and classification models. Schizophrenia is an example of a complex disease with an important social impact. The multiple causes of this disease create the need of new genetic or proteomic patterns that can diagnose patients using(More)
The importance of the promoter sequences in the function regulation of several important mycobacterial pathogens creates the necessity to design simple and fast theoretical models that can predict them. This work proposes two DNA promoter QSAR models based on pseudo-folding lattice network (LN) and star-graphs (SG) topological indices. In addition, a(More)
Efficient drugs such as statins or mevinic acids are inhibitors of the rate-limiting enzyme of cholesterol biosynthesis, 3-hydroxy-3-methyl-glutaryl coenzyme A reductase (HMGR), an enzyme responsible for the double reduction of 3-hydroxy-3-methyl-glutaryl coenzyme A into mevalonic acid. These compounds promoted the synthesis and evaluation of new inhibitors(More)
