Prediction of Protein Binding Regions in Disordered Proteins


ANCHOR2 is available!
How to use
Many disordered proteins function via binding to a structured partner and undergo a disorder-to-order transition. In order to predict disordered binding regions, ANCHOR seeks to identify segments that reside in disordered regions, cannot form enough favorable intrachain interactions to fold on their own and are likely to gain stabilizing energy by interacting with a globular protein partner. The approach relies on the pairwise energy estimation approach that is the basis for IUPred, a general disorder prediction method.
