COILS predict protein coiled-coil regions API - How To

The service provides predictions of coiled-coil regions within a protein structure through application of an algorithm from Lupas et al. It assesses the probability that some part of a protein structure represents a coiled-coil formation by comparing flanking sequences with those of proteins established as exhibiting such formations. API methods support submission of a protein sequence to generate a processing job and begin processing. The API returns any elements within the sequence that match known exemplars of coiled-coil structures.
