Abbr. Sequences Description Name
random 16447 Non-transmembrane random coils Random coil
s-sheet 8134 Non-transmembrane β-sheets Soluble β-sheets
s-helix 34452 Non-transmembrane α-helices Soluble α-helices

  1. All peptides have a minimal length of ten amino acids required for EBBS based analysis. Soluble pools contain only peptides with the defined SSE, while the trans-membrane pools contain both, peptides with the given SSE only and with the given SSE and additional amino acids to reach a length of ten amino acids
