PONDR-FIT: a meta-predictor of intrinsically disordered amino acids.
Protein intrinsic disorder is becoming increasingly recognized in proteomics research. While lacking structure, many regions of disorder have been associated with biological function. There are manyExpand

Why are “natively unfolded” proteins unstructured under physiologic conditions?
“Natively unfolded” proteins occupy a unique niche within the protein kingdom in that they lack ordered structure under conditions of neutral pH in vitro. Analysis of amino acid sequences, based onExpand

DisProt: the Database of Disordered Proteins
The Database of Protein Disorder (DisProt) links structure and function information for intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs). Intrinsically disordered proteins do not form a fixedExpand

Effect of environmental factors on the kinetics of insulin fibril formation: elucidation of the molecular mechanism.
In the search for the molecular mechanism of insulin fibrillation, the kinetics of insulin fibril formation were studied under different conditions using the fluorescent dye thioflavin T (ThT). TheExpand

Evidence for a Partially Folded Intermediate in α-Synuclein Fibril Formation*
Intracellular proteinaceous aggregates (Lewy bodies and Lewy neurites) of α-synuclein are hallmarks of neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's disease, dementia with Lewy bodies, and multipleExpand

Guidelines for the use and interpretation of assays for monitoring autophagy (3rd edition)
In 2008 we published the first set of guidelines for standardizing research in autophagy. Since then, research on this topic has continued to accelerate, and many new scientists have entered theExpand

Metal-triggered structural transformations, aggregation, and fibrillation of human alpha-synuclein. A possible molecular NK between Parkinson's disease and heavy metal exposure.
Parkinson's disease involves the aggregation of alpha-synuclein to form fibrils, which are the major constituent of intracellular protein inclusions (Lewy bodies and Lewy neurites) in dopaminergicExpand

Classification of Intrinsically Disordered Regions and Proteins
1.1. Uncharacterized Protein Segments Are a Source of Functional Novelty Over the past decade, we have observed a massive increase in the amount of information describing protein sequences from aExpand
