Identification of protein protein interactions (PPIs) is at the center of molecular biology considering the unquestionable role of proteins in cells. Combinatorial interactions result in a repertoire of multiple functions; hence, knowledge of PPI and binding regions naturally serve to functional proteomics and drug discovery. Given experimental limitations to find all interactions in a proteome, computational prediction/modeling of protein interactions is a prerequisite to proceed on the way to complete interactions at the proteome level. This review aims to provide a background on PPIs and their types. Computational methods for PPI predictions can use a variety of biological data including sequence-, evolution-, expression-, and structure-based data. Physical and statistical modeling are commonly used to integrate these data and infer PPI predictions. We review and list the state-of-the-art methods, servers, databases, and tools for protein-protein interaction prediction.

Prediction of protein subcellular localization based on primary sequence data
Ozarar, M; Atalay, Mehmet Volkan; Atalay, Rengül (2003-01-01)
This paper describes a system called prediction of protein subcellular localization (P2SL) that predicts the subcellular localization of proteins in eukaryotic organisms based on the amino acid content of primary sequences using amino acid order. Our approach for prediction is to find the most frequent motifs for each protein (class) based on clustering and then to use these most frequent motifs as features for classification. This approach allows a classification independent of the length of the sequence. ...
Prediction of protein subcellular localization based on primary sequence data

Subcellular localization is crucial for determining the functions of proteins. A system called prediction of protein subcellular localization (P2SL) that predicts the subcellular localization of proteins in eukaryotic organisms based on the amino acid content of primary sequences using amino acid order is designed. The approach for prediction is to nd the most frequent motifs for each protein in a given class based on clustering via self organizing maps and then to use these most frequent motifs as features...
Prediction of protein subcellular localization using global protein sequence feature
Bozkurt, Burçin; Atalay, Mehmet Volkan; Department of Computer Engineering (2003)
The problem of identifying genes in eukaryotic genomic sequences by computational methods has attracted considerable research attention in recent years. Many early approaches to the problem focused on prediction of individual functional elements and compositional properties of coding and non coding deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) in entire eukaryotic gene structures. More recently, a number of approaches has been developed which integrate multiple types of information including structure, function and genetic p...
Architectures and functional coverage of protein-protein interfaces
Tunçbağ, Nurcan; Guney, Emre; NUSSINOV, Ruth; Keskin, Ozlem (2008-09-05)
The diverse range of cellular functions is performed by a limited number of protein folds existing in nature. One may similarly expect that cellular functional diversity would be covered by a limited number of protein-protein interface architectures. Here, we present 8205 interface clusters, each representing a unique interface architecture. This data set of protein-protein interfaces is analyzed and compared with older data sets. We observe that the number of both biological and crystal interfaces increase...
Prediction of Protein Interactions by Structural Matching: Prediction of PPI Networks and the Effects of Mutations on PPIs that Combines Sequence and Structural Information
Tunçbağ, Nurcan; Nussinov, Ruth; Gursoy, Attila (Humana Press Inc., 2017)
Structural details of protein interactions are invaluable to the understanding of cellular processes. However, the identification of interactions at atomic resolution is a continuing challenge in the systems biology era. Although the number of structurally resolved complexes in the Protein Databank increases exponentially, the complexes only cover a small portion of the known structural interactome. In this chapter, we review the PRISM system that is a protein–protein interaction (PPI) prediction tool—its r...
