First, view the "k-NN" results by scrolling to the bottom of the page. The k-nearest neighbor (k-NN) algorithm takes theoutput of the many subprograms and determines a probability of localization at each candidatesite within the cell using all of the predictions.

What is the probability the sequence encodes a protein that is (a) secreted by vesicles?(b) localized to the endoplasmic reticulum? (c) cytoplasmic? or(d) localized to the nucleus?

Now, scroll through the results of the subprograms. Clicking on the links will reveal a brief description of the algorithm each individual subprogram utilizes.

What is the localization prediction and reliability score produced by the NNCN subprogram, Reinhardt's methods forcytoplasmic/nuclear discrimination?

The first two subprograms, PSG and GvH, are tools that predict N-terminal signal peptide sequences. Just after their results are listed, there is a statementsummarizing whether or not an N-terminal signal peptide has been predicted for the query sequence.

Do these subprograms predict an N-terminal signal peptide for the diacylglycerol kinase query?

Return to the ExPASy tools , and scroll to the section entitled "primary structure analysis".Click on the link for the ProtParam tool. ProtParam is a suite of programs designed to predict various chemical and physical properties about a proteinfrom its sequence. ProtParam will yield an estimated extinction coefficient at selected wavelengths based on protein sequence (6) , an estimation of the in vivo half-life of the protein ( 7 8 9 10 ), an instability index (11) , an aliphatic index (12) , and an average value for hydropathicity (13) . Cut and paste the Rat diacylglycerolkinase sequence above into the query box and click on "compute parameters".

What is the molecular weight computed from the sequence?

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
