Prediction of amyloids


Amyloids are proteins associated with the number of clinical disorders (e.g., Alzheimer's, Creutzfeldt-Jakob's and Huntington's diseases). Despite their diversity, all amyloid proteins can undergo aggregation initiated by 6- to 15-residue segments called hot spots. Henceforth, amyloids form unique, zipper-like beta-structures, which are often harmful. To find the patterns defining the hot spots, we developed our novel predictor of amyloidogenicity AmyloGram, based on random forests.


AmyloGram is available as R function (predict.ag_model) or shiny GUI (AmyloGram_gui).

The package is enriched with the benchmark data set pep424.
