In the protein universe, many proteins are composed of two or more polypeptide chains, generally referred to as subunits, which associate through noncovalent interactions and, occasionally, disulfide bonds to form protein quaternary structures. It has long been known that the functions of proteins are closely related to their quaternary structures; some examples include enzymes, hemoglobin, DNA polymerase, and ion channels. However, it is extremely labor-expensive and even impossible to quickly… 
Predicting protein folding rates using the concept of Chou's pseudo amino acid composition
TLDR
In this study, amino acid sequence order was used to derive an effective method, based on an extended version of the pseudo‐amino acid composition, for predicting protein folding rates without any explicit structural information, and the results indicate that sequence order information is an important determinant ofprotein folding rates.
Pseudo Amino Acid Composition and its Applications in Bioinformatics, Proteomics and System Biology
TLDR
The pseudo amino acid (PseAA) composition of a protein is actually a set of discrete numbers that is different from its amino acid sequence and able to harbour some sort of sequence order or pattern information.
A Novel Prediction of Quaternary Structural Type of Proteins with Gene Ontology.
TLDR
A prediction system for protein quaternary structural type in which a protein sequence was expressed by combining the Pfam functional-domain and gene ontology is developed and can be used as a reference for other protein classification problems.

TLDR
QuaBingo provides better predictive ability for predicting the quaternary structural attributes of proteins, and reveals the biological characterization of the top five block compositions.
QuatIdent: a web server for identifying protein quaternary structural attribute by fusing functional domain and sequential evolution information.
TLDR
The overall success rate by QuatIdent for the 1st layer identification was 711% and that for the 2nd layer ranged from 84 to 96%.
Quat-2L: a web-server for predicting protein quaternary structural attributes
TLDR
A 2-layer predictor called “Quat-2L” was developed for predicting the quaternary structural attribute of a protein according to its sequence information alone, and success rates were derived by the jackknife cross-validation tests on the stringent benchmark data set.
Identifying protein quaternary structural attributes by incorporating physicochemical properties into the general form of Chou's PseAAC via discrete wavelet transform.
TLDR
A high throughput method by fusing discrete wavelet transform and decision-tree algorithm with physicochemical features, which suggests that this newly developed protocol (DWT_DT) is very promising in predicting quaternary structures with complicated composition.
Protein remote homology detection by combining Chou’s distance-pair pseudo amino acid composition and principal component analysis
TLDR
A method called disPseAAC is proposed, in which the feature vector is constructed by combining the occurrences of amino acid pairs within the Chou’s pseudo amino acid composition approach, and the computational cost of the proposed method is much lower than that of other profile-based methods.
