Latent amino acid repeats seem to be widespread in genetic sequences and to reflect their structure, function, and evolution. We have recently identified latent periodicity in more than 150 protein families including protein kinases and various nucleotide-binding proteins. The latent repeats in these families were correlated to their structure and evolution. However, a majority of known protein families were not identified with our latent periodicity search algorithm. The main presumable reason… CONTINUE READING
