CLePAPS: Fast Pair Alignment of Protein Structures Based on Conformational Letters  [PDF]
Sheng Wang,Wei-Mou Zheng
Quantitative Biology , 2007,
Abstract: Fast, efficient and reliable algorithms for pairwise alignment of protein structures are in ever increasing demand for analyzing the rapidly growing data of protein structures. CLePAPS is a tool developed for this purpose. It distinguishes itself from other existing algorithms by the use of conformational letters, which are discretized states of 3D segmental structural states. A letter corresponds to a cluster of combinations of the three angles formed by C_alpha pseudobonds of four contiguous residues. A substitution matrix called CLESUM is available to measure similarity between any two such letters. CLePAPS regards an aligned fragment pair (AFP) as an ungapped string pair with a high sum of pairwise CLESUM scores. Using CLESUM scores as the similarity measure, CLePAPS searches for AFPs by simple string comparison. The transformation which best superimposes a highly similar AFP can be used to superimpose the structure pairs under comparison. A highly scored AFP which is consistent with several other AFPs determines an initial alignment. CLePAPS then joins consistent AFPs guided by their similarity scores to extend the alignment by several `zoom-in' iteration steps. A follow-up refinement produces the final alignment. CLePAPS does not implement dynamic programming. The utility of CLePAPS is tested on various protein structure pairs.

Using profiles based on hydropathy properties to define essential regions for splicing  [PDF]
Anatoly Ivashchenko,Galina Boldina,Aizhan Turmagambetova,Mireille Régnier
Quantitative Biology , 2009,
Abstract: We define new profiles based on hydropathy properties and point out specific profiles for regions surrounding splice sites. We built a set T of flanking regions of genes with 1-3 introns from 21st and 22nd chromosomes. These genes contained 313 introns and 385 exons and were extracted from GenBank. They were used in order to define hydropathy profiles. Most human introns, around 99.66%, are likely to be U2- type introns. They have highly degenerate sequence motifs and many different sequences can function as U2-type splice sites. Our new profiles allow to identify regions which have conservative biochemical features that are essential for recognition by spliceosome. We have also found differences between hydropathy profiles for U2 or U12-types of introns on sets of spice sites extracted from SpliceRack database in order to distinguish GT?AG introns belonging to U2 and U12-types. Indeed, intron type cannot be simply determined by the dinucleotide termini. We show that there is a similarity of hydropathy profiles inside intron types. On the one hand, GT?AG and GC?AG introns belonging to U2-type have resembling hydropathy profiles as well as AT?AC and GT?AG introns belonging to U12-type. On the other hand, hydropathy profiles of U2 and U12-types GT?AG introns are completely different. Finally, we define and compute a pvalue; we compare our profiles with the profiles provided by a classical method, Pictogram.
