MemLoci Info Page

MemLoci is a predictor specifically trained to discriminate the localization of membrane proteins between three classes:

  • - Plasma Membrane
  • - Internal Membrane
  • - Organelle Membrane

The three localization classes are derived from a grouping of all the membranes available in eukaryotes, and corresponds to:

  • - Plasma membrane: Plasma membrane
  • - Organelle membranes: mitochondrial or plastidial membranes
  • - Internal membranes: endoplasmic reticulum, nucleus, golgi apparatus, vesicles, vacuoles, lysosomes, peroxisome, microsomes, and endosome membranes

Please note that MemLoci cannot discriminate if a protein is associated to a cell membrane or not. For this task please use one of the many specific predictors avalable.
