LipoP - 1.0

Signal peptidase I & II cleavage sites in gram- bacteria

The LipoP 1.0 server produces predictions of lipoproteins and discriminates between lipoprotein signal peptides, other signal peptides and n-terminal membrane helices in Gram-negative bacteria.

Note: Although LipoP 1.0 has been trained on sequences from Gram-negative bacteria only, the following paper reports that it has a good performance on sequences from Gram-positive bacteria also:

NOTE: LipoP is outdated and is only kept online for reference. Lipoprotein signal peptides are better predicted by the current version of SignalP!
