Binary classification of protein molecules into intrinsically disordered and ordered segments

Academic Journal
The article presents a study classifying entire regions of protein molecules into the two categories, structural domains in proteins (SDs) and intrinsically disordered (ID) regions, and also obtaining various kinds of complete genome-wide statistics. This study has revealed the concrete ratio of intrinsically ordered and disordered segments in the human proteome by using the DICHOT system. This study has provided important basic information for understanding protein structural architectures.

    For an increasing fraction of proteins whose structures are being studied, sequence homology to known structures permits building of low resolution structural models. It is demonstrated that dipolar couplings, measured in a liquid crystalline medium, not only can validate such structural models,...

    Over the past 20 years, the field of foldamers has rapidly increased. Many β-peptides have already been described and shown interesting properties. γ-Peptides have more recently emerged but seem to be very interesting as well. In this review, we will cover every peptidomimetic oligomer...

    Docking simulates molecular interactions. Protein - protein docking, owing to the sizes of molecules, is a very challenging problem. As the number of degrees of freedom in the molecular structure of proteins is huge, docking algorithms consider the molecules as relatively rigid bodies. Shape...

    According to current estimates there exist about 20,000 pseudogenes in a mammalian genome. The vast majority of these are disabled and nonfunctional copies of protein-coding genes which, therefore, evolve neutrally. Recent findings that a Makorin1 pseudogene, residing on mouse Chromosome 5,...

    Collinsella massiliensis strain GD3 is the type strain of Collinsella massiliensis sp. nov., a new species within the genus Collinsella. This strain, whose genome is described here, was isolated from the fecal flora of a 53-year-old French Caucasoid woman who had been admitted to intensive care...
