PMCID: 5874766
PMID: 29385081
DOI: 10.3390/proteomes6010007

[…] can be used to determine the taxonomic composition of the sample. a number of options exist for taxonomic classification from the metapeptide data, some which were already deployed in galaxy-p. the unipept tool, deployed previously in galaxy-p [], maps sequences to annotated microbial organisms contained in the uniprot knowledgebase and subjects these to lowest common ancestor (lca) analysis […]

PMCID: 5451396
PMID: 28566732
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-02749-2

[…] for kpc, after excluding peptides with lengths < 6 aa and > 24 aa (supplementary table ). to eliminate those core peptides that were not specific for kpc, lowest common ancestor (lca) (http://unipept.ugent.be/) and protein blast search (https://blast.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/blast) were used. the remaining core peptides specific to kpc (n = 11) were chosen as candidate peptide markers […]

PMCID: 5348496
PMID: 28352255
DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2017.00391

[…] instead of blastx. moreover, peptides from sequences which could not be annotated by megan were iteratively subjected to lca taxonomic classification using the ‘metaproteome analysis’ module of the unipept web application ()., differential analysis of 16s-mg, s-mg and mp data (adjusted based on the total number of counts per sample) was performed using an established paired sample test […]

PMCID: 5026301
PMID: 27549116
DOI: 10.1093/femsec/fiw180

[…] annotation partially curated by experts., based on standardized taxonomic annotation, proteins in peptide sharing clusters can be reduced to the lowest common anchor (lca) (fig. ). the unipept web application provides a robust lca approach considering all occurrences of identified tryptic peptides in uniprotkb. alternatively, pipasic estimates the peptide level similarity […]

PMCID: 4919658
PMID: 27428431
DOI: 10.1016/j.ebiom.2016.04.033

[…] were determined by performing one-way analysis of similarities (anosim) and similarity percentages (simper) analyses., phylogenetic analyses based on the identified peptides were performed using unipept (, )., thawed peripheral blood mononuclear cells (pbmc) were analysed by western blot using cell lysates (equal protein concentration) and antibodies to acetylated (ac) histone (h)3 […]
