  1. pmc [PSI+] maintenance is dependent on the composition, not primary sequence, of the oligopeptide repeat domain
    James A Toombs
    Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, Colorado, United States of America
    PLoS ONE 6:e21953. 2011
    ..Furthermore, we demonstrate that compositional requirements for the repeat domain are distinct from those of the nucleation domain, indicating that prion nucleation and propagation are driven by distinct compositional features...
  2. pmc The effects of amino acid composition on yeast prion formation and prion domain interactions
    Eric D Ross
    Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO, USA
    Prion 4:60-5. 2010
    ..This observation, combined with the growing number of yeast prions, suggests that a broad network of interactions between heterologous glutamine/asparagine-rich proteins may affect yeast prion formation...
