[…] methods to predict herbal protein targets. on the other hand, plenty of prediction approaches based on network propagation have been widely applied to identify genetic associations, e.g., drugcipher-ms [] for drug target identification, prince [], pgwalk [] and know-gene [] for disease gene identification and herb target prediction, which indicated that network propagation […]

[…] perform a functional analysis of matrine, a marketed drug in china extracted from a medical herb ku-shen (radix sophorae flavescentis). here, the network target of matrine was firstly predicted by drugcipher, a genome-wide target prediction method. based on the network target of matrine, we performed a functional gene set enrichment analysis to computationally identify the potential […]

[…] weightlessness induced muscle atrophy. the results indicated that bz could significantly protect muscles from simulated weightlessness-induced atrophy. to elucidate the underlying mechanisms, drugcipher-cs methods were introduced to predict its potential targets, significantly enriched pathways and biological processes. the results demonstrated that the calcium signaling pathway, citrate […]

[…] to the one targeted by a drug, this protein is more likely to be targeted by the drug or a drug with similar therapeutic effects. based on this idea, zhao and li [] proposed a novel method named drugcipher to predict drug-target interactions by integrating drug therapy information, chemical structure information, and ppin. later, drugcipher has been successfully applied to predict targets […]

[…] combinational rules, achieving a good balance among the herb's frequency, independence, and distance in herbal formulae []., target prediction for herbal compounds and herbs. in the present study, drugcipher, a method we developed previously [], is used to predict the target profile for all available compounds collected from each herb in the core herb networks. drugcipher is a regression model […]
