Analysis of Homologs of Cry toxin Receptor Related Proteins in the Midgut of a Non Bt Target, Nilaparvata lugens (Stål) (Hemiptera: Delphacidae)

PMCID: 5804751
PMID: 29415259
DOI: 10.1093/jisesa/iex102

[…] but not from bphAPN1, 2, and 4. The GPI-anchored sites are common motifs found in Cry-associated APNs. Analysis of GPI-anchored signals of bphAPNs by using three online prediction programs (PredGPI, FragAnchor, and big-PI Predictor) suggested that only near the C-terminus of bphAPN4 is there a high probability of finding a GPI-anchored site (; ). In addition, both N- and O-glycosylation sites wer […]


Characterising PvRBSA: an exclusive protein from Plasmodium species infecting reticulocytes

PMCID: 5437689
PMID: 28521840
DOI: 10.1186/s13071-017-2185-6

[…] life-cycle []; a positive prediction by SignalP 4.1 [] and BaCelLo [] of a secretion signal sequence and extracellular localisation, respectively; the presence (or not) of a GPI anchor sequence using FragAnchor software [], as well as the presence of repeats having 90% similarity in amino acid (aa) sequences using T-REKS algorithm []. The Phobius [], HMMTOP [] and TMHMM [] servers were used to pre […]


Cross talk of the biotrophic pathogen Claviceps purpurea and its host Secale cereale

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5379732
PMID: 28372538
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-017-3619-4

[…] r transmembrane domains (TMs). All candidates which might possess no TM according to two out of three programs used (Phobius, TMHMM 1.0 and DAS) were kept in the pool if they were without GPI-anchor (fragAnchor) or without an ER signal (ScanProsite, searched motif: PS00014) [–]. They were accepted into the final pool of effector candidates – without regard of the number of cysteines in their seque […]


Insight into the Exoproteome of the Tissue Derived Trypomastigote form of Trypanosoma cruzi

PMCID: 5097913
PMID: 27872839
DOI: 10.3389/fchem.2016.00042

[…] and SecretomeP v.2.0 ( softwares were used to predict proteins secreted by classical and non-classical pathways, respectively, and FragAnchor (Poisson et al., ) to assign predicted Glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored proteins. Transmembrane helices based on a hidden Markov model (TMHMM) algorithm ( […]


Specific Endocytosis Blockade of Trypanosoma cruzi Exposed to a Poly LAcNAc Binding Lectin Suggests that Lectin Sugar Interactions Participate to Receptor Mediated Endocytosis

PLoS One
PMCID: 5042520
PMID: 27685262
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0163302

[…] Subcellular localization, GPI and glycosylation were annotated using either literature references or prediction tools. GPI-modification was predicted using FragAnchor (, glycosylation using NetNGlyc ( and subcellular localization prediction using PSORT II (h […]


Cold acclimation is accompanied by complex responses of glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchored proteins in Arabidopsis

J Exp Bot
PMCID: 5014161
PMID: 27471282
DOI: 10.1093/jxb/erw279

[…] ific algorithms that each GPI-AP prediction program employs, 79, 63, 112, 127, and 93 potential GPI-APs were predicted by Borner’s potential GPI-AP list, big-PI Plant Predictor, PredGPI, GPI-SOM, and fragAnchor, respectively. Among them, 44 proteins were predicted as GPI-APs by all the algorithms, while a number of proteins were only identified as GPI-APs by a single program. For example, 33 prote […]
