Conformational disorder

, : Conformational disorder. Methods in Molecular Biology 609: 307-325

In recent years it was shown that a large number of proteins are either fully or partially disordered. Intrinsically disordered proteins are ubiquitary proteins that fulfill essential biological functions while lacking a stable 3D structure. Despite the large abundance of disorder, disordered regions are still poorly detected. The identification of disordered regions facilitates the functional annotation of proteins and is instrumental in delineating boundaries of protein domains amenable to crystallization. This chapter focuses on the methods currently employed for predicting disorder and identifying regions involved in induced folding.
