Kohonen's self-organization model, a neural network model, is applied to predict the beta-turns in proteins. There are 455 beta-turn tetrapeptides and 3807 non-beta-turn tetrapeptides in the training database. The rates of correct prediction for the 110 beta-turn tetrapeptides and 30,229 non-beta-turn tetrapeptides in the testing database are 81.8% and(More)
Knowledge of the polyprotein cleavage sites by HIV protease will refine our understanding of its specificity, and the information thus acquired will be useful for designing specific and efficient HIV protease inhibitors. The search for inhibitors of HIV protease will be greatly expedited if one can find an accurate, robust, and rapid method for predicting(More)
The specificity of GalNAc-transferase is consistent with the existence of an extended site composed of nine subsites, denoted by R4, R3, R2, R1, R0, R1', R2', R3', and R4', where the acceptor at R0 is either Ser or Thr to which the reducing monosaccharide is anchored. To predict whether a peptide will react with the enzyme to form a Ser- or Thr-conjugated(More)
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects, devices, vehicles, buildings and other items that enables these objects to collect and exchange data. One of the application domains of IoT is smart building where a number of things are efficiently interconnected in order to combine and integrate the physical world to the information space(More)
Au nanoparticles dispersed SiO2-TiO2 composite films have been prepared by a novel wet process, Liquid Phase Deposition (LPD) method. The composite films were characterized by XRD, XPS, TEM, ICP, SEM and UV-VIS absorption spectroscopy. The results showed that the SiO2-TiO2 composite films containing Au and Au ionic species were co-deposited from a mixed(More)
Wireless sensor networks and embedded systems are becoming commonplace in many fields of research. However, sensor nodes are generally powered by batteries which provide a limited amount of power, and it is often difficult to recharge or replace the batteries. Therefore, power aware and power efficient protocols at each layer of the communications are very(More)
