Neuronal circadian clock protein oscillations are similar in behaviourally rhythmic forager honeybees and in arrhythmic nurses

Open Biol
PMCID: 5493776
PMID: 28615472
DOI: 10.1098/rsob.170047

[…] the highest fluorescent intensity compared with several successive images from a focal cell. We used the DAPI staining to define the nucleus of the focal cell. In all the cells in which we quantified amPER immunostaining intensity, the amPER-ir signal appeared to be limited to the nucleus. We calculated the cluster average based on the intensity measured for individual cells. We normalized the sig […]


Computer aided identification of a Hevein like antimicrobial peptide of bell pepper leaves for biotechnological use

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5249031
PMID: 28105928
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-016-3332-8

[…] c DB Antimicrobial Peptide Search (APD2) and Database Linking MPAs, without successful results about similarity in general or for species-specific searches. In the portal Bioactive Peptide Databases, Amper DB detected alignment (P < 0.05) with two mature Hevein fragments from Hevea brasiliensis and Eucommia ulmoides; CAMP found 16 Hevein-like and/or CBD-protein that showed significant alignments ( […]


Scrutinizing the immune defence inventory of Camponotus floridanus applying total transcriptome sequencing

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4508827
PMID: 26198742
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-015-1748-1

[…] The creation of used HMMs of AMPs has been described elsewhere []. Briefly, in the AMPer database [] 1045 mature peptides associated with known antimicrobial activities were considered to create 146 HMMs of mature peptides. All the 146 HMMs of mature peptides were retrieved from the […]


Towards the Improved Discovery and Design of Functional Peptides: Common Features of Diverse Classes Permit Generalized Prediction of Bioactivity

PLoS One
PMCID: 3466233
PMID: 23056189
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0045012

[…] icrobial peptides, AntiBP2 , based on a Support Vector Machine (SVM) was trained on peptides from the APD , using the 15 N and C terminal residues and the amino acid composition of the whole peptide. AMPer , antimicrobial peptide predictor, used hidden Markov models (HMMs) constructed from known antimicrobial peptides to discover novel antimicrobial peptide candidates (see http://marray.cmdr.ubc.c […]


Prediction of Antimicrobial Peptides Based on Sequence Alignment and Feature Selection Methods

PLoS One
PMCID: 3076375
PMID: 21533231
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0018476

[…] the similarity principle and hence cannot avoid some sort of arbitrariness or false positive.Up to now, several computational methods , , , , , , have been proposed for the predicting AMPs. However, AMPer method is not available at as described in . BACTIBASE , and PhytAMP methods were specifically designed for bacteriocin and plant respectively. As for Anti […]
