A method and software tool to develop patterns of protein families has been designed. These patterns are intended for the identification of local similarities in arbitrary amino acid sequences with proteins of the SWISS-PROT bank. The method is based on the physical, chemical and structural properties of amino acids. It assembles a 'best set' of elements (a(More)
Using a chemically synthesised adapter, the coding part of an artificial gene for human leukocyte alpha 2 interferon (ifn-alpha 2) has been duplicated. The adapter contained a termination signal of the first gene (TAA) within the Shine-Dalgarno sequence of the second gene (TAAGGA), distance between the terminating codon and starting codon of the second gene(More)
A new computer method for detecting local structural regularities in genomes of different microorganisms is described. The method is based on the concepts of complexity and complexity profile of a finite sequence. The complexity measure taking into account the specificity of genetic texts (presence of repeats, symmetries, inversions) is proposed. The(More)
Based on the protein sequence data bank (PIR), the "variable fragment" bank, comprising pairs of closely related proteins, containing one or more strongly differing sites of primary structures was formed. The bank includes 465 "variable fragments" of 383 protein pairs. Amino acid residues composition of "variable fragments" was examined and indexes of(More)
A correlation of the localization of functionally important regions with places having low and high values on twelve profiles built on a basis of amino acid sequences was analysed using a broad set of proteins. The profiles of hydrophilicity, resemblance to the sequences of human proteins, flexibility, mutability and others were considered. The resemblance(More)
Using gene fragments encoding the leader peptide of E. coli tryptophane operon (as duplicated fragment HhaI-140) or M13 phage coat protein (as TaqI-381 or HaeIII-1623 fragments) and basing on pDS1 family of plasmids, expression vectors have been constructed which contained transcription promoters Ptrp, PVIII, and Pv + PVIII, respectively. An artificial gene(More)
