Dear netters,

MitoProt II v1.0 is now available at

              mailing the authors

and very soon at


Description   It supplies a series of parameters that permit=20
                theoretical evaluation on mitochondrial targeting=20
                sequences and the importability.=20
              MitoProt II provides the possibility to predict=20
                mitochondrial proteins harbouring targeting=20
              Chloroplast proteins also can be studied.

Literature    Claros & Vincens,1996, Eur J. Biochem. 241, 779-786

Notes         1- MitoProt II is available as a "basic"=20
                 application, or as a "rapid" one. The rapid one=20
                 needs 68020 processor, or later, and FPU. Both=20
                 need system 6.0.2 or later. Older system versions have
                 not been assayed, but perhaps do work well too.
              2- A version for unix machines is also available without
                 using the graphic cabapilities.
              3- A mail server is available to test a protein sending a
                 message with the sequence to mitoprot at biologie.ens.fr

Old release   MitoProt II 1.beta

MitoProt II has been designed for Macintosh computers, using=20
THINK Pascal 4.5.4 and Universal Headers 2.1. For unix machines it=20
has been designed in ADA95 using the GNat compiler.
