Identification of novel drug targets in bovine respiratory disease: an essential step in applying biotechnologic techniques to develop more effective therapeutic treatments

Drug Des Devel Ther
PMCID: 5944452
PMID: 29765203
DOI: 10.2147/DDDT.S163476

[…] own).The druggable targets were subsequently subjected to quantitative analyses like pathway analyses, GO analyses, choke-point analyses, prediction of protein sorting signals and localization sites (PSORT) biologic location analyses, virulence analyses, and AMR analyses. A list of drugs approved for BRD was downloaded from the FDA Green Book to act as a positive control.The drugs that bind to the […]


Characterization of the DNA binding activity of structural protein VP1 from chicken anaemia virus

PMCID: 5936033
PMID: 29728113
DOI: 10.1186/s12917-018-1465-5

[…] in in Japanese quails. This specific region within the N-terminus of VP1 contains high arginine content and might confer an ability to VP1 to bind and protect DNA []. Using online software, including PSORT II ( and DP-Bind (, the VP1 protein was analysed in this study. A total of four putative DNA-binding motifs and two putative NLSs were found and p […]


Functional analysis of a pathogenesis related thaumatin like protein gene TaLr35PR5 from wheat induced by leaf rust fungus

BMC Plant Biol
PMCID: 5935958
PMID: 29728059
DOI: 10.1186/s12870-018-1297-2
call_split See protocol

[…] ExPASyProtparam and Protscale were employed to determine the amino acids compositions, physical and chemical properties and the hydrophobicity or hydrophilicity. Psort Prediction ( TargetP ( were used to analyze the subcellular localization. Prediction of signal peptide was performed usin […]


Identification and Functional Characterization of Sugarcane Invertase Inhibitor (ShINH1): A Potential Candidate for Reducing Pre and Post harvest Loss of Sucrose in Sugarcane

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 5944049
PMID: 29774044
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2018.00598

[…] T programs at NCBI. Prediction of putative signal peptides was carried out using PrediSi (Hiller et al., ) and SignalP (Petersen et al., ) programs, while subcellular localization was predicted using PSORT ( Multiple sequence and pairwise alignments were performed using CLC Genomics Workbench. A phylogenetic tree was constructed with the neighbor-joining method u […]


Trypanosomal mitochondrial intermediate peptidase does not behave as a classical mitochondrial processing peptidase

PLoS One
PMCID: 5919513
PMID: 29698456
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0196474
call_split See protocol

[…] Putative mitochondrial pre-sequences and the cleavage sites of MPP were predicted by Gavel’s consensus patterns search in the PSORTII program ( [,] and MitoProt II [], using the T. brucei mitoproteome dataset []. Proteins with predicted pre-sequences were further analyzed for the MIP cleavage motif (F/L/I)XX(T/S/G)XXX […]


A Novel Protein Elicitor BAR11 From Saccharothrix yanglingensis Hhs.015 Improves Plant Resistance to Pathogens and Interacts With Catalases as Targets

Front Microbiol
PMCID: 5900052
PMID: 29686663
DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2018.00700

[…] rix (). According to the genome-wide sequencing results of strain Hhs.015, we analyzed its secreted protein genes using several software of SignalPv4.1, TMHMMv2.0, DAS-TMfilter, HMMTOP, Prosite Scan, PSORT and big-PI predictor and selected some of the function-unknown putative protein genes to investigate their functions after heterologous expression. According to the disease resistance to apple c […]
