[…] for cochlear whole mounts in some animals., for whole mount preparation the bone of the cochlear wall and tectorial membrane were removed gradually from the cochlear apex to the base and basilar membrain together with organ of corti was microdissected into four pieces per each cochlea. cochlear whole mounts then were stained with anti-c-terminal binding protein 2 antibodies (anti-ctbp2, […]

[…] a biomimetic recombinant 3a viral protein. the 3a protein is myristoylated at the n-terminal glycine residue and also contains a hydrophobic region that every algorithm tested (cctop, hmmtop, membrain, memsat, octopus, philius, phobius, pro, prodiv, scampi, scampimsa, and tmhmm) predicts as a transmembrane helix that could anchor 3a protein in the lipid bilayer (fig.  upper panel). […]

[…] metapsicov is one such meta-predictor that uses a neural network to combine predictions from, amongst others, the psicov, mfdca and ccmpred scores (jones et al., 2015). a related approach is membrain, which is a contact predictor optimized for transmembrane proteins (jones et al., 2015; xiao & shen, 2015). membrain uses a neural network to combine a covariance-based approach (psicov) […]

[…] known as the membrane peroxisomal targeting signal (mpts) and helices found in the nbd. memsat [], used in the cctop and psipred servers, as well as minnou [], were able to predict 5 to 6 tmhs. membrain [], a tool with improved ability in correctly identifying the ends of tmhs and which is also used in the cctop server, detected six to seven tmhs. while a consensus emerged for the positions […]
