    Objective: We used a random approach to analyze amino acid pairs in human Von Hippel-Lindau disease tumor suppressor (G7 protein) in order to determine which amino acid pairs are more sensitive to 109 mutations from human G7 protein. The rationale for this study is based on our hypothesis and...

    Background: As one of the most important virulence factor types in gram-negative pathogenic bacteria, type-III effectors (TTEs) play a crucial role in pathogen-host interactions by directly influencing immune signaling pathways within host cells. Based on the hypothesis that type-III secretion...

    Glycation is a nonenzymatic process in which proteins react with reducing sugar molecules. The identification of glycation sites in protein may provide guidelines to understand the biological function of protein glycation. In this study, we developed a computational method to predict protein...

    Several algorithms have been developed that use amino acid sequences to predict whether or not a protein or a region of a protein is disordered. These algorithms make accurate predictions for disordered regions that are 30 amino acids or longer, but it is unclear whether the predictions can be...

    Palmitoylation is an important hydrophobic protein modification activity that participates many cellular processes, including signaling, neuronal transmission, membrane trafficking and so on. So it is an important problem to identify palmitoylated proteins and the corresponding sites. Comparing...

    Most of the proteins in a eukaryotic cell are synthesized in the cytoplasm. Newly synthesized proteins are targeted to the exact subcellular compartments and perform their biological roles. Thus, computational methods for predicting protein subcellular locations are valuable tools for obtaining...

    PrDOS is a server that predicts the disordered regions of a protein from its amino acid sequence (http://prdos.hgc.jp). The server accepts a single protein amino acid sequence, in either plain text or FASTA format. The prediction system is composed of two predictors: a predictor based on local...
