ACTH Receptor (MC2R) Specificity: What Do We Know About Underlying Molecular Mechanisms?

PMCID: 5292628
PMID: 28220105
DOI: 10.3389/fendo.2017.00013

[…] extracellular region of MCRs (, , ). It is presumed that in the case of ACTHR these are formed between C245 and C251, and between C21 and C253 (Figure ). Both the MC4R model and predictions using the NetTurnP 1.0 server () indicate that the bond between this first pair of residues “locks” the conserved –P–Q–N–P–Y– motif of extracellular loop (EL) 3 into a β-turn-like structure, thus exposing its N […]


Longipin: An Amyloid Antimicrobial Peptide from the Harvestman Acutisoma longipes (Arachnida: Opiliones) with Preferential Affinity for Anionic Vesicles

PLoS One
PMCID: 5172563
PMID: 27997568
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0167953

[…] ed but also presented a high β-turn content, which is in agreement with the presence of Pro-Gly motif in the primary structure, that would favor formation of a type II β-turn. Moreover, prediction by NetTurnP method [] pointed to the presence of a β-turn in the segment Leu4-Pro5-Gly6-Lys7, which corresponds to 22% of the peptide chain. In quantitative agreement with this result, FT-IR spectrum of […]


Evidence for the recent origin of a bacterial protein coding, overlapping orphan gene by evolutionary overprinting

BMC Evol Biol
PMCID: 4683798
PMID: 26677845
DOI: 10.1186/s12862-015-0558-z

[…] t 86 % accuracy []. Finally, BCL::Jufo9D has a prediction accuracies of 73.2 % the secondary structure prediction, and 94.8 % for the transmembrane span prediction []. Beta-turns were predicted using NetTurnP []. Sensitivity is 76 % and specificity 79 %, respectively, in distinguishing turns from not-turns []. The protein secondary structure was established using SOPMA [], PSIPRED [], Pred2ary [], […]


TECPR2 Associated Neuroaxonal Dystrophy in Spanish Water Dogs

PLoS One
PMCID: 4640708
PMID: 26555167

[…] available from UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot: Q9VWB0.2 (Drosophila melanogaster). Impact of the mutations on the protein stability and structure was predicted with the following software tools: PolyPhen2 [], NetTurnP [], NetSurfP [], the Chou&Fasman secondary structure prediction server CFSSP [], PoPMuSiC [], and Phyre2 [].

Predicting beta turns in proteins using support vector machines with fractional polynomials

Proteome Sci
PMCID: 3908855
PMID: 24565438
DOI: 10.1186/1477-5956-11-S1-S5

[…] and Kurgan's method and the method of Liu et al. provide 5.9/25 = 24% error rate reduction, and Hu and Li's method provides 4.8/25 = 19% error rate reduction.H-SVM-LR shows high MCC 0.56 compared to NetTurnP 0.50, Zheng and Kurgan's method 0.47, and the method of Liu et al. 0.44. Thus, H-SVM-LR has the highest MCC and Qtotal among the other β-turns prediction methods. The MCC value achieved is no […]


Turn Directed α β Conformational Transition of α syn12 Peptide at Different pH Revealed by Unbiased Molecular Dynamics Simulations

Int J Mol Sci
PMCID: 3709708
PMID: 23708094
DOI: 10.3390/ijms140610896

[…] at physiological pH than acidic pH.Residues such as Asn, Asp, Gly, Pro and Ser tend to form turns. In this sequence, the probabilities of each residue to form turns can be predicted with the software NetTurnP [] and the results are shown in . At physiological pH, Asp2 is negatively charged, which experiences electrostatic attraction from Lys6. However, at acidic pH, Asp2 is neutral. This makes it […]
