Investigation of protein-ligand interactions obtained from experiments has a crucial part in the design of newly discovered and effective drugs. Analyzing the data extracted from known interactions could help scientists to predict the binding affinities of promising ligands before conducting experiments. The objective of this study is to advance the CIFAP (compressed images for affinity prediction) method, which is relevant to a protein-ligand model, identifying 2D electrostatic potential images by separating the binding site of protein-ligand complexes and using the images for predicting the computational affinity information represented by pIC(50) values. The CIFAP method has 2 phases, namely, data modeling and prediction. In data modeling phase, the separated 3D structure of the binding pocket with the ligand inside is fitted into an electrostatic potential grid box, which is then compressed through 3 orthogonal directions into three 2D images for each protein-ligand complex. Sequential floating forward selection technique is performed for acquiring prediction patterns from the images. In the prediction phase, support vector regression (SVR) and partial least squares regression are used for testing the quality of the CIFAP method for predicting the binding affinity of 45 CHK1 inhibitors derived from 2-aminothiazole-4-carboxamide. The results show that the CIFAP method using both support vector regression and partial least squares regression is very effective for predicting the binding affinities of CHK1-ligand complexes with low-error values and high correlation. As a future work, the results could be improved by working on the pose of the ligands inside the grid.


Predicting the effect of hydrophobicity surface on binding affinity of PCP-like compounds using machine learning methods
Yoldaş, Mine; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; Büyükbingöl, Erdem; Department of Computer Engineering (2011)
This study aims to predict the binding affinity of the PCP-like compounds by means of molecular hydrophobicity. Molecular hydrophobicity is an important property which aff ects the binding affinity of molecules. The values of molecular hydrophobicity of molecules are obtained on three-dimensional coordinate system. Our aim is to reduce the number of points on the hydrophobicity surface of the molecules. This is modeled by using self organizing maps (SOM) and k-means clustering. The feature sets obtained fro...
An approach to measure trace elements in particles collected on fiber filters using EDXRF
ÖZTÜRK, FATMA; Zararsız, Abdullah; Kırmaz, Rıdvan; Tuncel, Süleyman Gürdal (2011-01-15)
A method developed for analyzes of large number of aerosol samples using Energy Dispersive X-Ray Fluorescence (EDXRF) and its performance were discussed in this manuscript. Atmospheric aerosol samples evaluated in this study were collected on cellulose fiber (Whatman-41) filters, employing a Hi-Vol sampler, at a monitoring station located on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey. between 1993 and 2001. Approximately 1700 samples were collected in this period. Six-hundred of these samples were analyzed by instru...
Predicting the binding affinities of drug-protein interaction by analyzing the images of binding sites
Erdaş, Özlem; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; Büyükbingöl, Erdem; Department of Computer Engineering (2013)
Analysis of protein-ligand interactions plays an important role in designing safe and efficient drugs, contributing to drug discovery and development. Recently, machine learning methods have been found useful in drug design, which utilize intelligent techniques to predict unknown protein-ligand interactions by learning from specific properties of known protein-ligand interactions. The aim of this thesis is to propose a novel computational model, Compressed Images for Affinity Prediction (CIFAP), to predict ...
A moment technique for adsorption rate on metal surfaces of supported catalysts CO adsorption on Pt-Al2O3 washcoated monolith
Dogu, G; Ozkan, G; Doğu, Timur (2001-12-15)
A moment technique was developed for the investigation of adsorption on metal surfaces of supported catalysts. The technique was applied to the evaluation of adsorption rate parameters of CO on a Pt-Al2O3 washcoated monolith. The adsorption rate constants evaluated in the temperature range 273-316 K showed significant decrease with an increase in surface coverage. Results of pulse response experiments corresponding to zero coverage gave the apparent activation energy for adsorption as 21 kJ/mol. This method...
The role of antiferromagnetic exchange interactions in dinuclear Cr(III) dithiocarbamates and a stepwise behavior of magnetic moment
AYTEKİN, ÖZLEM; Bayri, A. (Pleiades Publishing Ltd, 2012-12-01)
In this study the role of the antiferromagnetic interactions in recently synthesized dinuclear Cr(III) complex has been investigated. Since there was not enough structural information for the characterization of the synthesis, we claim that there should be antiferromagnetic interactions between the dinuclear Fe(III) ions, if the proposed structure is the real structure. A new experiment is proposed to test the predictions of this theoretical investigation.
