Apoptotic proteins play key roles in understanding the mechanism of programmed cell death. Knowledge about the subcellular localization of apoptotic protein is constructive in understanding the mechanism of programmed cell death, determining the functional characterization of the protein, screening candidates in drug design, and selecting protein for relevant studies. It is also proclaimed that the information required for determining the subcellular localization of protein resides in their corresponding amino acid sequence. In this work, a new biological feature, class pattern frequency of physiochemical descriptor, was effectively used in accordance with the amino acid composition, protein similarity measure, CTD (composition, translation, and distribution) of physiochemical descriptors, and sequence similarity to predict the subcellular localization of apoptosis protein. AdaBoost with the weak learner as Random-Forest was designed for the five modules and prediction is made based on the weighted voting system. Bench mark dataset of 317 apoptosis proteins were subjected to prediction by our system and the accuracy was found to be 100.0 and 92.4 %, and 90.1 % for self-consistency test, jack-knife test, and tenfold cross validation test respectively, which is 0.9 % higher than that of other existing methods. Beside this, the independent data (N151 and ZW98) set prediction resulted in the accuracy of 90.7 and 87.7 %, respectively. These results show that the protein feature represented by a combined feature vector along with AdaBoost algorithm holds well in effective prediction of subcellular localization of apoptosis proteins. The user friendly web interface "APSLAP" has been constructed, which is freely available at http://apslap.bicpu.edu.in and it is anticipated that this tool will play a significant role in determining the specific role of apoptosis proteins with reliability.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 31 December 2016.
All research outputs
of 8,837,139 outputs
Outputs from Acta Biotheoretica
of 72 outputs
Outputs of similar age
of 243,317 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Acta Biotheoretica
of 2 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 8,837,139 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 60th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 72 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.8. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 69% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 243,317 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 68% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 2 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
