Abstract

A simple method for searching amphipathic helices based on estimation of correlation between hydrophobicity distribution and periodic function is proposed. The method was examined in a series of proteins with known T-cell epitopes, which are mostly amphipathic helices. The predictive power of the method is discussed.
