The PASTA server for protein aggregation prediction.

Department of Physics G. Galilei, University of Padova, Padova, Italy.


Many different proteins aggregate into amyloid fibrils characterized by cross-beta structure. beta-strands contributed by distinct protein molecules are generally found in a parallel in-register alignment. Here, we describe the web server for a novel algorithm, prediction of amyloid structure aggregation (PASTA), to predict the most aggregation-prone portions and the corresponding beta-strand inter-molecular pairing for a given input sequence. PASTA was previously shown to yield results in excellent agreement with available experimental observations, when tested on both natively unfolded and structured proteins.
