Deciphering the dark proteome of Chikungunya virus

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5895634
PMID: 29643398
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-23969-0

[…] sitive predictor for finding disordered based interaction sites, and a meta-predictor PONDR-FIT as is more accurate than its individual component predictors, such as PONDR® VLS2, PONDR® VLXT, IUPred, FoldIndex, TopIDP. In our study, we have used PONDR® FIT, PONDR® VSL2, and PONDR® VLXT for disordered analysis in polyprotein of CHIKV. Several reports suggested that IDPs/IDPRs play a central role in […]


Comparative genomic analysis of mollicutes with and without a chaperonin system

PLoS One
PMCID: 5810989
PMID: 29438383
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0192619
call_split See protocol

[…] For length, charge and FoldIndex comparisons, the mean of all homologs found in GroE+ or GroE- of one query protein was calculated and then all (57 or less) the means (per GroE+ or GroE- group) were averaged again for the g […]


SUMO targeting of a stress tolerant Ulp1 SUMO protease

PLoS One
PMCID: 5774762
PMID: 29351565
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0191391

[…] ive bioinformatics analysis of K. marxianus and S. pombe proteins []. We observed the biggest size difference between KmUlp1 and ScUlp1 (66 amino acids) and Km and Sc Siz1 (99 amino acids). Using the Foldindex webs-tool, we generated the predicted unfoldability scores for all SUMO pathway components []. We found that, as expected, Km SUMO pathway components were general less disordered (see the ). […]


Understanding the Role of Intrinsic Disorder of Viral Proteins in the Oncogenicity of Different Types of HPV

Int J Mol Sci
PMCID: 5796147
PMID: 29315236
DOI: 10.3390/ijms19010198

[…] dict regions of intrinsic disorder in E6 proteins of different HPV types.PONDR-FIT employs the unification of the methodologies of six predictors namely, PONDR® VLXT, PONDR® VL3, PONDR® VSL2, IUPred, FoldIndex, and TopIDP. The output data are composed of a table that individually scores each of the amino acids in the sequence, indicating the probability of each residue being structured or disorder […]


Disulfide driven folding for a conditionally disordered protein

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5717278
PMID: 29208936
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-17259-4

[…] Intrinsic disorder in hCox17 was predicted using the web-based algorithms FoldIndex, IUPRED, ESpritz, PONDR-FIT and RONN with default settings. An 11-residue sliding window was used in all cases. […]


Structural disorder and induced folding within two cereal, ABA stress and ripening (ASR) proteins

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5686140
PMID: 29138428
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-15299-4

[…] ), both proteins appear depleted in hydrophobic clusters, indicative of protein disorder (Fig. ). Additionally, the two proteins are predicted to be disordered over most of their sequence by DorA and FoldIndex (Supplementary Text ). In further support of this, both proteins are predicted to be disordered over their entire sequence by MetaDisorderMD2 (Fig. ), the most accurate disorder predictor ac […]
