Non-globular proteins - from sequence to structure, function and application in molecular physiopathology (NGP-NET)

Project leader: RNDr. Škrabana Rostislav PhD.
Annotation:Non-globular proteins (NGPs) encompass different molecular phenomena that defy the traditional sequence-structure-function paradigm. NGPs include intrinsically disordered regions, tandem repeats, aggregating domains, low-complexity sequences and transmembrane domains. Although growing evidence suggests that NGPs are central to many human diseases, functional annotation is very limited. It was recently estimated that close to 40 of all residues in the human proteome lack functional annotation and many of these are NGPs. While a better understanding of NGPs is crucial to fully comprehend human molecular physiopathology, progress has been hampered so far by the lack of a systematic approach to their study.This Action Proposal aims to create a pan-European scientific network of groups that work on NGPs to strengthen, focus and coordinate research in this field. It proposes to develop a novel classification of NGPs by consensus among interested experts that will be showcased on a newly developed web site, along with meetings, training schools and scientific missions on NGP-related topics.
