Abstract: Amino acid repeats, or homorepeats, are low complexity protein motifs consisting of tandem repetitions of a single amino acid. Their presence and relative number vary in different proteomes, and some studies have tried to address this variation, proteome by proteome. In this work, we present a full characterization of amino acid homorepeats across evolution. We studied the presence and differential usage of each possible homorepeat in proteomes from various taxonomic groups, using clusters of very similar prot…
