For three of the four mutations predicted to decrease the polymerization propensity, monomers were still present after 20 minutes. Only the last mutant (K331T) polymerizes within the same timeframe as the wild-type protein. CONCLUSIONS The prediction of protein tertiary structure from the amino acid sequence is an eminently complex task, far from being totally settled at present time. However, significant progress is being made, and the models obtained by the different in silico prediction techniques are becoming more and more reliable (12-14).
