[…] ()., sch9 is enriched with asparagine residues. this feature is typical for yeast aggregation-prone proteins. to determine specific region(s) that might be responsible for aggregation, we chose archcandy [] among several available software tools for amyloidogenicity prediction []. among a variety of different analogs we chose this due to accumulating evidence of its accuracy [, , ]. […]

[…] surface of e. coli cells in vivo., the aminoacid sequence of yghj is highly enriched with potentially amyloidogenic regions predicted by three different bioinformatic algorithms, waltz, sarp, and archcandy (). these algorithms are completely different; waltz predicts short, potentially amyloidogenic regions based on a position-specific scoring matrix [], sarp predicts compositionally biased […]

[…] adopt a stable serpentine structure. for both of these reasons, the regular periodicity of repeat segments may facilitate formation of the serpentine structure. figure 2. , one prediction algorithm, archcandy, has been developed to predict the steric zipper packing interactions within serpentine structures. in preliminary analysis with archcandy, we were not able to identify any obvious trends […]

[…] dielectric constant were used. images of molecular structures on and were generated with pymol program. alternative structural arrangements of the rhim-containing fibrils () were proposed by the archcandy program. to build the molecular models we used templates of the β-arc conformations found in the known structures of β-solenoids., k.h. initiated the study; k.h., a.v.k. and k.k. performed […]
