    Objectives: In this paper, a high-quality sequence encoding scheme is proposed for predicting subcellular location of apoptosis proteins.

    Methods: In the proposed methodology, the novel evolutionary-conservative information is introduced to represent protein sequences. Meanwhile, based on the proportion of golden section in mathematics, position-specific scoring matrix (PSSM) is divided into several blocks. Then, these features are predicted by support vector machine (SVM) and the predictive capability of proposed method is implemented by jackknife test RESULTS: The results show that the golden section method is better than no segmentation method. The overall accuracy for ZD98 and CL317 is 98.98% and 91.11%, respectively, which indicates that our method can play a complimentary role to the existing methods in the relevant areas.

    Conclusions: The proposed feature representation is powerful and the prediction accuracy will be improved greatly, which denotes our method provides the state-of-the-art performance for predicting subcellular location of apoptosis proteins.

    Apoptosis, or programed cell death, plays a central role in the development and homeostasis of an organism. Obtaining information on subcellular location of apoptosis proteins is very helpful for understanding the apoptosis mechanism. The prediction of subcellular localization of an apoptosis protein is still a challenging task, and existing methods mainly based on protein primary sequences. Read More

    Knowledge of apoptosis proteins plays an important role in understanding the mechanism of programmed cell death. Obtaining information on subcellular location of apoptosis proteins is very helpful to reveal the apoptosis mechanism and understand the function of apoptosis proteins. Because of the cost in time and labor associated with large-scale wet-bench experiments, computational prediction of apoptosis proteins subcellular location becomes very important and many computational tools have been developed in the recent decades.

    Antifreeze proteins (AFPs) are ice-binding proteins. Accurate identification of new AFPs is important in understanding ice-protein interactions and creating novel ice-binding domains in other proteins. In this paper, an accurate method, called AFP_PSSM, has been developed for predicting antifreeze proteins using a support vector machine (SVM) and position specific scoring matrix (PSSM) profiles.
