The purpose of AlphaPred server is to predict alpha turn residues in a given primary amino acid sequence. It uses multiple alignment and secondary structure information. The turn prediction is done at residue level.
About Submission Form
The input sequence for prediction is a one-letter code amino acid sequence in fasta or plain text format. The name of protein/query
is optional. The sequence can be pasted in the text area provided or can be uploaded through a file in the format (fasta or plain_text) specified in the form.
The AlphaPred server predicts the alpha turns at residue level. The predictions are grouped in blocks of 50 residues. For each block: Row 1 records the amino acid sequence (provided by the user); Row 2 records the secondary structure predicted by PSIPRED (H=Helix, E=strand and C=coil); Row 3 records the alpha-turn/non-turn predicted residues in the given protein sequence. The predicted alpha turn residues are denoted as a and non-turn residues denoted as ..
