PMCID: 4498515
PMID: 26160665
DOI: 10.1186/s12934-015-0284-7

[…] no acid compositional bias of Q/N enriched prion domains has allowed the recent development of three different algorithms to identify the presence of PrLDs in protein sequences: PAPA [], PLAAC [] and PrionScan []. No prionic propensity is predicted with any of these programs for the N-terminal segment, whereas all of them identify the C-terminal region as displaying a PrLD comprising residues 340– […]
