Do you have a lipoprotein ? - find out by submitting the sequence

This program searches for probable lipoprotein signal sequence using the following criteria

  • Presence of + charged aminoacids in the initial residues
  • Presence of atleast 7-22 residues between the predicted Lipobox and the charged residue
  • Presence of a Lipobox within the first 40 residues from the N-termninus with the consensus as [LVI][ASTVI][ASG][C]

Tripartite nature of the signal peptide

Please enter only one sequence as plain text without any other extra information (spaces and numbers will be automatically excluded. Please do not enter any specal characters)
