NAME

Bio::Tools::Analysis::Protein::Scansite - a wrapper around the Scansite server

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  use Bio::Tools::Analysis::Protein::Scansite;

  my $seq; # a Bio::PrimarySeqI object

  my $tool = Bio::Tools::Analysis::Protein::Scansite->new
     ( -seq => $seq->primary_seq );

  # run Scansite prediction on a sequence
  $tool->run();

  # alternatively you can say
  $tool->seq($seq->primary_seq)->run;

  die "Could not get a result" unless $tool->status =~ /^COMPLETED/;

  print $tool->result;     # print raw prediction to STDOUT

  foreach my $feat ( $tool->result(Bio::SeqFeatureI) ) {

      # do something to SeqFeature
      # e.g. print as GFF
      print $feat->gff_string, "\n";
      # or store within the sequence - if it is a Bio::RichSeqI
      $seq->add_SeqFeature($feat);

 }



DESCRIPTION

This class is a wrapper around the Scansite 2.0 server which produces predictions for serine, threonine and tyrosine phosphorylation sites in eukaryotic proteins. At present this is a basic wrapper for the Scan protein by input sequence functionality, which takes a sequence and searches for motifs, with the option to select the search stringency. At present, searches for specific phosphorylation sites are not supported; all predicted sites are returned.

    Return formats

The Scansite results can be obtained in several formats:
1. By calling



  my $res = $tool->result();



$res holds a string of the predicted sites in tabular format.

2. By calling



  my $data_ref = $tool->result(value)



$data_ref is a reference to an array of hashes. Each element in the array represents a predicted phosphorylation site. The hash keys are the names of the data fields,i.e.,



    motif      => Casn_Kin1       # name of kinase
    percentile => 0.155             # see Scansite docs
    position   => 9                 # position in protein
    protein    => A1              # protein id
    score      => 0.3696            # see Scansite docs
    sequence   => ASYFDTASYFSADAT # sequence surrounding site
    site       => S9              # phosphorylated residue
    zscore     => -3.110          # see Scansite docs



3. By calling



  my @fts = $tool->Result(Bio::SeqFeatureI);



which returns an array of Bio::SeqFeatureI compliant objects with primary tag value ’Site’ and tag names of ’motif’, ’score’, ’sequence’, ’zscore’ as above.

See <http://scansite.mit.edu/>.

This inherits Bio::SimpleAnalysisI which hopefully makes it easier to write wrappers on various services. This class uses a web resource and therefore inherits from Bio::WebAgent.

FEEDBACK

    Mailing Lists

User feedback is an integral part of the evolution of this and other Bioperl modules. Send your comments and suggestions preferably to one of the Bioperl mailing lists. Your participation is much appreciated.

    Support

Please direct usage questions or support issues to the mailing list:

bioperl-l@bioperl.org

rather than to the module maintainer directly. Many experienced and reponsive experts will be able look at the problem and quickly address it. Please include a thorough description of the problem with code and data examples if at all possible.

    Reporting Bugs

Report bugs to the Bioperl bug tracking system to help us keep track the bugs and their resolution. Bug reports can be submitted via the web:

APPENDIX

The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods. Internal methods are usually preceded with a _

    result



 Name    : result
 Usage   : $job->result (...)
 Returns : a result created by running an analysis
 Args    : none (but an implementation may choose
           to add arguments for instructions how to process
           the raw result)



The method returns a scalar representing a result of an executed job. If the job was terminated by an error, the result may contain an error message instead of the real data.

This implementation returns differently processed data depending on argument:
undef Returns the raw ASCII data stream but without HTML tags
Bio::SeqFeatureI The argument string defined the type of bioperl objects returned in an array. The objects are Bio::SeqFeature::Generic.
’parsed’ Returns a reference to an array of hashes containing the data of one phosphorylation site prediction. Key values are:

motif, percentile, position, protein, score, site, zscore, sequence.

    stringency



 Usage    : $job->stringency(...)
 Returns  : The significance stringency of a prediction
 Args     : None (retrieves value) or High, Medium or Low.
 Purpose  : Get/setter of the stringency to be sumitted for analysis.



    protein_id



 Usage    : $job->protein_id(...)
 Returns  : The sequence id of the protein or unnamed if not set.
 Args     : None 
 Purpose  : Getter of the seq_id. Returns the display_id of the sequence
            object.
