Gene Prioritization: Rationale, Methodologies and Algorithms

Settling on causal genes underlying susceptibility to human sickness is an issue of fundamental significance within the post-genomic period and in present biomedical examine. lately, there was a paradigm shift of such gene-discovery efforts from infrequent, monogenic stipulations to universal “oligogenic” or “multifactorial” stipulations reminiscent of bronchial asthma, diabetes, cancers and neurological issues.

The SO has been used to refine the understanding of the several physico-chemical properties, based on statistics gathered on 18 homodimers and 36 heterodimers protein complexes. We have seen that the composition of the core and the rim of an interface are different [17], and one would tend to believe that charged or polar amino-acids tend to be located near the rim, where electrostatic interactions with the solvent are favored. However, the correlation between SO and the electrostatic properties of amino acids is not statistically significant in general [11].

The surface area is a good descriptor of the specificity of interactions [17]. Another important parameter is the curvature of the ABW interface. Since the ABW interface is a cell complex consisting of Vorono¨ı tiles, its extrinsic, or mean, curvature, is directly encoded in the dihedral angles defined by incident Vorono¨ı facets—two incident Vorono¨ı facets define a hinge. From a biological standpoint, curvier interfaces indeed generally 22 F. Cazals et al.

Docking), although the methods used here may certainly be applied to that end. Geometrical encoding of the structures and the interface between the components does however provide means for interpreting dynamic and energetic properties of the complex. We will see that Vorono¨ı diagrams, Delaunay triangulation and the associated α-shape provide descriptors of molecules that can be correlated to experimental quantities. 1 Experimental Measurements Relevant for Macromolecular Modeling Numerous quantitative experimental measures have been developed to describe and qualify molecular complexes.
