BACKGROUND Amyloidoses are a group of usually fatal diseases, probably caused by protein misfolding and subsequent aggregation into amyloid fibrillar deposits. The mechanisms involved in amyloid fibril formation are largely unknown and are the subject of current, intensive research. In an attempt to identify possible amyloidogenic regions in proteins for(More)
Identifying amyloidogenic regions in protein sequences is useful in understanding the underlying cause of several human diseases and finding potential therapeutic targets. Given the laborious nature of experimental validation of segments most prone to form fibrils, it was essential that computational approaches be developed that could produce reliable,(More)
