Allermatch allergen finder: Input Form

This webpage features the following three ways of analysis to identify a relationship between your input sequence and an allergen from the database:
  • 80-amino-acid sliding window: The input sequence is chopped up in 80-amino-acid windows. For each 80- amino acid window, the program counts which allergen it hits (with a specific identity).
  • Full Alignment: Use FASTA to perform a full alignment.
  • Wordmatch: Look for an exact hit of 6 or more contiguous amino acids in a sequence in the database.
As explained under Databases, comparisons can be run against either of the following two databases:
  1. The AllergenDB_propeptides_removed databases contains allergen sequences from which the signal- and propeptide sequences are removed when post-translational modifications (PTMs) were predicted by UniProtKB.
  2. The AllergenDB_original_sequences database contains the non-processed allergen sequences with PTMs.

Algorithm:
Do an 80-amino-acid sliding window alignment Cut-off Percentage (only applicable to the 80-amino-acid sliding window)
Look for a small exact wordmatch Wordlength (only applicable to the exact wordmatch search)
Do a full FASTA alignment
