A discriminative method for remote homology detection based on n-peptide compositions with reduced amino acid alphabets

In this study, n-peptide compositions are utilized for protein vectorization over a discriminative remote homology detection framework based on support vector machines (SVMs). The size of amino acid alphabet is gradually reduced for increasing values of n to make the method to conform with the memory resources in conventional workstations. A hash structure is implemented for accelerated search of n-peptides. The method is tested to see its ability to classify proteins into families on a subset of SCOP family database and compared against many of the existing homology detection methods including the most popular generative methods; SAM-98 and PSI-BLAST and the recent SVM methods; SVM-Fisher, SVM-BLAST and SVM-Pairwise. The results have demonstrated that the new method significantly outperforms SVM-Fisher, SVM-BLAST, SAM-98 and PSI-BLAST, while achieving a comparable accuracy with SVM-Pairwise. In terms of efficiency, it performs much better than SVM-Pairwise. It is shown that the information of n-peptide compositions with reduced amino acid alphabets provides an accurate and efficient means of protein vectorization for SVM-based sequence classification.

Caylar, Selcuk; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal; Dural, Guelbin (2007-06-16)
In recent years application of Neural Network (NN) algorithms in both target tracking problem and DoA estimation have become popular because of the increased computational efficiency This paper presents the implementation of modified neural network algorithm(MN-MUST) to the uniform circular dipole array in the presence of mutual coupling. In smart antenna systems, mutual coupling between elements can significantly degrade the processing algorithms. In this paper mutual coupling affects on MN-MUST has been i...
A temporal neural network model for constructing connectionist expert system knowledge bases
Alpaslan, Ferda Nur (Elsevier BV, 1996-04-01)
This paper introduces a temporal feedforward neural network model that can be applied to a number of neural network application areas, including connectionist expert systems. The neural network model has a multi-layer structure, i.e. the number of layers is not limited. Also, the model has the flexibility of defining output nodes in any layer. This is especially important for connectionist expert system applications.

A Novel Fuzzy Visual Object Classification Approach
Altintakan, Umit Lutfu; Yazıcı, Adnan; KOYUNCU, Murat (2012-06-15)
Support Vector Machines (SVMs) have been extensively used for visual object classification to bridge the semantic gap between the low level features and high level concepts. SVM treats each training input equally during the construction of its decision surface which results in poor learning machines if training data include outliers. In this paper, a novel fuzzy visual object classification approach utilizing Self-Organizing Maps (SOMs) in SVM is proposed. The experimental results show the effectiveness of ...
A Structural Perspective on the Modulation of Protein-Protein Interactions with Small Molecules.
Demirel, Habibe Cansu; Dogan, Tunca; Tunçbağ, Nurcan (2018-01-01)
Protein-Protein Interactions (PPIs) are the key components in many cellular processes including signaling pathways, enzymatic reactions and epigenetic regulation. Abnormal interactions of some proteins may be pathogenic and cause various disorders including cancer and neurodegenerative diseases. Although inhibiting PPIs with small molecules is a challenging task, it gained an increasing interest because of its strong potential for drug discovery and design. The knowledge of the interface as well as the stru...
