Protein-Protein Interaction Affinity Prediction Based on Interface Descriptors and Machine Learning
Knowing the protein-protein interaction affinity is important for accurately inferring the time dimensionality of the dynamic protein-protein interaction networks from a viewpoint of systems biology. The accumulation of the determined protein complex structures with high resolution facilitates to realize this ambitious goal. Previous methods on protein-protein interaction affinity (PPIA) prediction have achieved great success. However, there is still a great space to improve prediction accuracy. Here, we develop a support vector regression method to infer highly heterogeneous protein-protein interaction affinities based on interface properties. This method takes full advantage of the labels of the interaction pairs and greatly reduces the dimensionality of the input features. Results show that the supervised machine leaning methods are effective with R=0.80 and SD=1.41 and perform well when applied to the prediction of highly heterogeneous or generic PPIA. Comparison of different types of interface properties shows that the global interface properties have a more stable performance while the smoothed PMF obtains the best prediction accuracy.
