Abstract: Chameleon sequences have been implicated in amyloid related diseases. Here we report an analysis of two types of chameleon sequences, chameleon-HS (Helix vs. Strand) and chameleon-HE (Helix vs. Sheet), based on known structures in Protein Data Bank. Our survey shows that the longest chameleon-HS is eight residues while the longest chameleon-HE is seven residues. We have done a detailed analysis on the local and global environment that might contribute to the unique conformation of a chameleon sequence. We foun…
