Knowledge of protein-protein interactions (PPIs) plays an important role in constructing protein interaction networks and understanding the general machineries of biological systems. In this study, a new method is proposed to predict PPIs using a comprehensive set of 930 features based only on sequence information, these features measure the interactions between residues a certain distant apart in the protein sequences from different aspects. To achieve better performance, the principal component analysis (PCA) is first employed to obtain an optimized feature subset. Then, the resulting 67-dimensional feature vectors are fed to Support Vector Machine (SVM). Experimental results on Drosophila melanogaster and Helicobater pylori datasets show that our method is very promising to predict PPIs and may at least be a useful supplement tool to existing methods.

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.
