Geometric Transformers for Protein Interface Contact Prediction

  title={Geometric Transformers for Protein Interface Contact Prediction},
  author={Alex Morehead and Chen Chen and Jianlin Cheng},
Computational methods for predicting the interface contacts between proteins come highly sought after for drug discovery as they can significantly advance the accuracy of alternative approaches, such as protein-protein docking, protein function analysis tools, and other computational methods for protein bioinformatics. In this work, we present the Geometric Transformer, a novel geometryevolving graph transformer for rotation and translation-invariant protein interface contact prediction…

DIPS-Plus: The Enhanced Database of Interacting Protein Structures for Interface Prediction
This work expands on a dataset recently introduced for this task, the Database of Interacting Protein Structures (DIPS), to present DIPS-Plus, an enhanced, feature-rich dataset of 42,112 complexes for geometric deep learning of protein interfaces, giving researchers a large, well-curated feature bank for training protein interface prediction methods.
Accurate prediction of inter-protein residue–residue contacts for homo-oligomeric protein complexes
A deep learning model to predict inter-protein residue-residue contacts across homo-oligomeric protein interfaces, named as DeepHomo, which achieved a high precision of >60% for the top predicted contact and outperformed state-of-the-art direct-coupling analysis and machine learning-based approaches.
Predicting protein-protein interface residues using local surface structural similarity
A comparison of PrISEC with PredUs, a recently developed method for predicting interface residues of a query protein based on the known interfaces of its (global) structural homologs, shows that performance superior or comparable to that of PredUs can be obtained using only local surface structural similarity.
Protein interaction interface region prediction by geometric deep learning
A unified Geometric Deep Neural Network, "PInet" (Protein Interface Network), based on joint segmentation of a representation of a protein surfaces, which predicts the interface regions on both interacting proteins, achieving performance equivalent to or much better than the state-of-the-art predictor for each dataset.

Deep Learning of High-Order Interactions for Protein Interface Prediction
This work proposes to formulate the protein interface prediction as a 2D dense prediction problem, and proposes a novel deep model to incorporate the sequential information and high-order pairwise interactions to perform interface predictions.
Protein-ligand binding site recognition using complementary binding-specific substructure comparison and sequence profile alignment
Two new methods, one based on binding-specific substructure comparison (TM-Site) and another on sequence profile alignment (S-SITE), for complementary binding site predictions are developed, which demonstrate a new robust approach to protein-ligand binding site recognition, ready for genome-wide structure-based function annotations.
