Abstract: Many biologically important protein-protein interactions (PPIs) have been found to be mediated by short linear motifs (SLiMs). These interactions are mediated by the binding of a protein domain, often with a nonlinear interaction interface, to a SLiM. We propose a method called D-SLIMMER to mine for SLiMs in PPI data on the basis of the interaction density between a nonlinear motif (i.e., a protein domain) in one protein and a SLiM in the other protein. Our results on a benchmark of 113 experimentally verified reference SLiMs showed that D-SLIMMER outperformed existing methods notably for discovering domain-SLiMs interaction motifs. To illustrate the significance of the SLiMs detected, we highlighted two SLiMs discovered from the PPI data by D-SLIMMER that are variants of the known ELM SLiM, as well as a literature-backed SLiM that is yet to be listed in the reference databases. We also presented a novel SLiM predicted by D-SLIMMER that was strongly supported by existing biological literatures. These examples showed that D-SLIMMER is able to find SLiMs that are biologically relevant. © 2011 American Chemical Society.
