Evolution of UCP1 Transcriptional Regulatory Elements Across the Mammalian Phylogeny

Front Physiol
PMCID: 5611445
PMID: 28979209
DOI: 10.3389/fphys.2017.00670

[…] s occurring in the human. Some eutherian species displayed inactivated UCP1 genes with deletions of whole exons (e.g., Chinese pangolin; Manis pentacatyla, Javan pangolin; Manis javanica, nine-banded armadillo; Dasypus novemcinctus), or deletion of the entire gene (killer whale and bottlenose dolphin). The annotation techniques described above did not reveal the presence of a UCP1 enhancer in thes […]


Ab initio and homology based prediction of protein domains by recursive neural networks

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 2711945
PMID: 19558651
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-10-195

[…] rotein domain dataset. The true boundary sizes here were enlarged to a minimum of 21 residues with a correct boundary being ± 10 from this true boundary; making our ± 20 boundary distance comparable. Armadillo [] achieves a recall of 37% and a precision of 36% on boundaries with a simple amino acid propensity index. Again boundaries were considered correct for ± 20 residues.Finally, we directly co […]


Improving the performance of DomainDiscovery of protein domain boundary assignment using inter domain linker index

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 1764483
PMID: 17254311
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-7-S5-S6

[…] more domains than predicted by structural methods. SSEP-Domain [] performance was superior for one and two domain (85%) chains, but below DomainDiscovery performance for three or more domain chains. Armadillo's [] tendency is to cut chains excessively as compared to other methods; which makes its performance inferior.PBP was calculated to determine the average percentage value for the six methods […]
