PMID: 19470175
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-10-159

[…] helix svm., table shows the overall topology prediction accuracy when applying the method to the test set of 131 tm proteins, alongside results for a number of other recent topology predictors. memsat-svm and memsat3 results are fully cross-validated as described above, with all proteins homologous to the target being removed from training sets, while results for the remaining methods […]

[…] were extracted and psi-blast profiles were generated using the swiss-prot database. the tm/globular predictor was used to identify tm proteins, which were then subject to full topology prediction., memsat-svm is available as downloadable source code and as a web server from the url below and is free for non-commercial use. all data sets are also available, and cross-validation svm model files […]

[…] to model the invert-state based on this sequence alignment. the topological orientation of baca within the bacterial cytoplasmic membrane was predicted using sequence-based approaches topcons and memsat-svm and the structure-based method memembed., gromacs v5.1.2 was used to perform all molecular dynamics simulations (mds). coarse grained (cg) mds with the martini 2.2 force field, were used […]

[…] fig. ). for this reason, the ab initio prediction of the helix dimer structure was crucial in the modelling process., the location of the tm segments was identified using the predictors memsat-svm, octopus and tmpred (supplementary table ). ab initio modelling of the tm segments was performed using the preddimer server, and the best model was selected according to the proposed […]

[…] chosen for the present study due to its close similarity to the s. bicolor mate sequence., in addition, bdmate and sbmate transmembrane domains analysis was performed, using the softwares ffpred and memsat-svm (; ). the results are shown in the figure , where it was demonstrated that the b. distachyon mate possesses the same 12 transmembrane domains presented by the s. bicolor mate protein.
