A Novel Approach to Predict Protein-Protein Interactions Related to Alzheimer's Disease Based on Complex Network
Abstract:A protein domain interaction prediction program was complied using C++ to predict whether a query protein could interact with other hub proteins. It is indicated that the proteins interacting with AATF (Apoptosis-Antagonizing Transcription Factor) possess a common conservative pattern: I-x(0,1)-E-x(2)-[A/E/N/T]-x-[E/K]. Our method is attempted to integrate the characteristics of protein interaction network with the simplest building blocks-conservative patterns.

More about this publication?
- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
