PMCID: 3773625
PMID: 24036468
DOI: 10.1038/srep02659

[…] representations, r.m.s. deviation, dihedral, planar angle calculations were done with pymol molecular graphics system, (version schrodinger, llc). disorder predictions were calculated using disembl 1.5. predictions of transmembrane regions were calculated with hmmtop 2.0., cd spectra were recorded in a jasco j-710 cd spectrophotometer. peptides were diluted to the final concentration […]

[…] and q8jux5]. previously, for disorder analysis, several specialized predictors have been developed, for example, pondr® pool [pondr® fit, pondr® vls2, pondr® vlxt], as well as iupred, disopred, disembl, globplot, spritz, and much more. to evaluate the precision of disorder predictors, several aforementioned tools were compared within the frames of the critical assessment of protein […]

PMID: 29641592
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0194891

[…] programs jpred [], sspro [], porter [], and gor4 [] were used to predict the secondary structure content of a single 80 amino acid tr unit. disordered region prediction programs prdos [], iupred [], disembl [], predictprotein [] were used to predict the disordered regions in trp120., far-uv circular dichroism (cd) spectroscopy was used to determine the secondary structure content […]

[…] (eftekharzadeh et al, ) may support development of novel therapeutic approaches., disorder of human full‐length tau [2n4r, 441 amino acids (aa)] was predicted using pondr (http://www.pondr.com/) and disembl (http://dis.embl.de/), low complexity was predicted using cast (http://dis.embl.de/) and seg (http://mendel.imp.ac.at/methods/seg.server.html), and the single amino acid as well […]

[…] acid sequences have been successfully achieved through bioinformatics, which is coping with a rapidly increasing number of genome sequences. examples of prediction tools in this category include disembl [], globplot [], pondr vsl1 [], disopred [], dispro [], and vsl2 []. we also developed different idp predictors, dichot [,], and a series of web applications named poodle [,,]. in this study, […]

[…] structure content was predicted using several methods – gor4, jnet, predator, simpa, and psipred–. in addition, the libraries were analyzed by different protein disorder predictors (disopred, disembl, vsl2 and iupred) and empirical indices predicting solubility (cvsol and gravy)–., to investigate the aggregation propensity of structurally distinct protein sequences, proteins of high […]
