KSHV encoded ORF59 modulates histone arginine methylation of the viral genome to promote viral reactivation

PLoS Pathog
PMCID: 5513536
PMID: 28678843
DOI: 10.1371/journal.ppat.1006482

[…] em to alter specific functionality. This begged the obvious question of whether ORF59 is arginine-methylated by associating with PRMT5. To investigate this, we used a methylation prediction software, MASA (Methylation site based on the Accessible Surface Area) available at [], which found that only a single arginine, R384 could potentially be methylated (Fig […]


Protein post translational modifications: In silico prediction tools and molecular modeling

Comput Struct Biotechnol J

[…] ce-based analysis of training data sets, some of them have also started to take into account other interesting properties, such as evolutionary information (e.g., PhosphoOrtholog, iUbiq), SASA (e.g., MASA, METhK, SUMOAMVR) and physiochemical properties (e.g., Pmes, SUMOhydro).Altogether, these approaches are only rarely considering the molecular features associated with PTMs and the molecular impa […]

SOHSite: incorporating evolutionary information and physicochemical properties to identify protein S sulfenylation sites

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4895302
PMID: 26819243
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-015-2299-1

[…] erestimation on performance evaluation, homologous sequences in the training and independent testing datasets were removed using 30 % sequence similarity as the filtering threshold, with reference to MASA []. As shown in (Additional file : Figure S1), two S-sulfenylated proteins with more than 30 % sequence identity were defined as homologous protein sequences. Then, two homologous sequences were […]
