Recently, prediction of lncRNA-disease associations has attracted more and more attentions. Various computational models have been proposed; however, there is still room to improve the prediction accuracy. In this paper, we propose a kernel fusion method with different types of similarities for the lncRNAs and diseases. The expression similarity and cosine similarity are used for lncRNAs, and the semantic similarity and cosine similarity are used for the diseases. To eliminate the noise effect, a neighbor constraint is enforced to refine all the similarity matrices before fusion. Experimental results show that the proposed similarity kernel fusion (SKF)-LDA method has the superiority performance in terms of AUC values and other measurements. In the schemes of LOOCV and 5-fold CV, AUC values of SKF-LDA achieve 0.9049 and 0.8743±0.0050 respectively. In addition, the conducted case studies of three diseases (hepatocellular carcinoma, lung cancer, and prostate cancer) show that SKF-LDA can predict related lncRNAs accurately.

The GENETIC RECOMBINATION of the parts of two or more GENES resulting in a gene with different or additional regulatory regions, or a new chimeric gene product. ONCOGENE FUSION includes an ONCOGENE as at least one of the fusion partners and such gene fusions are often detected in neoplastic cells and are transcribed into ONCOGENE FUSION PROTEINS. ARTIFICIAL GENE FUSION is carried out in vitro by RECOMBINANT DNA technology.

An unexplained illness which is characterized by skin manifestations including non-healing lesions, itching, and the appearance of fibers. There appears to be a strong association with LYME DISEASE.
An itching, autoimmune, bullous SKIN disease that occurs during the last two trimesters of PREGNANCY and PUERPERIUM. It also affects non-pregnant females with tissue of PLACENTA origin, such as CHORIOCARCINOMA; or HYDATIDIFORM MOLE. It exhibits antigenic and clinical similarity to bullous pemphigoid (PEMPHIGOID, BULLOUS). This disease does not involve herpes viruses (old name, herpes gestationis).
A class I viral fusion protein that forms the characteristic spikes, or peplomers, found on the viral surface that mediate virus attachment, fusion, and entry into the host cell. During virus maturation, it is cleaved into two subunits: S1, which binds to receptors in the host cell, and S2, which mediates membrane fusion.
