Reduction, alignment and visualisation of large diverse sequence families

William R. Taylor
2016 BMC Bioinformatics  
Results: A method (MULSEL) is presented that combines fast peptide-based pre-sorting with a following cascade of mini-alignments, each of which are generated with a robust profile/profile method.  ...  It is often quite difficult to tell from these raw results whether the search has been a success or has picked-up sequences with little or no relationship to the query.  ...  The data was designed so that all sequences that are enriched in the same amino acid can be aligned with each other but not with a sequence that has been enriched with a different amino acid type.  ...

ASSP; the Antibody Secondary Structure Profile search tool

Dimitrios Vlachakis, Alexandros Armaos, Ioannis Kasampalidis, Arianna Filntisi, Sophia Kossida
2014 International Conference on Algorithms for Big Data  
In this direction, a novel platform has been developed, which is capable of performing a customized hydropathy blast using traditional sequence blast filtering and an integrated fast similarity search  ...  However, one of the major drawbacks of modern bioinformatics is the fact that protein similarity and blast searches are still based on primary amino acid sequence rather than structural data.  ...  The realization that protein sequence contains hydropathy patterns led to the development of reduced amino acid alphabets based on hydropathy for the prediction of secondary structure.  ...

Hydropathy Conformational Letter and its Substitution Matrix HP-CLESUM: an Application to Protein Structural Alignment [article]

Sheng Wang
2010 arXiv   pre-print
Motivation: Protein sequence world is discrete as 20 amino acids (AA) while its structure world is continuous, though can be discretized into structural alphabets (SA).  ...  Combined with our SA, namely conformational letter (CL) of 17 alphabets, we get a joint alphabet called hydropathy conformational letter (hp-CL).  ...  Amino acids (AA) or all kinds of SAs can be treated as coding systems, so long as the alphabet has its substitution matrix.  ...

Improvement of protein structure comparison using a structural alphabet

Agnel Praveen Joseph, N. Srinivasan, Alexandre G. de Brevern
2011 Biochimie  
Amino acid substitutions scores were also coupled linearly with the PB substitutions. iPBA improves (i) the mining efficiency rate by 6.8% and (ii) more than 82% of the alignments have a better quality  ...  A structural alphabet (SA) is a library of local protein structure prototypes that can abstract every part of protein main chain conformation.  ...  In conclusion, iPBA (improved PBALIGN approach) provides a fast and efficient means for recognizing protein domains with same fold as the query from a large databank.  ...
