Based on preceding and C-terminal amino acid, the peptide type of a given peptide is assigned. Peptides with preceeding and C-terminal lysine or arginine are considered fully-tryptic. If a peptide is located at the N- or C-terminus of a protein and fulfills the criterium to be fully-tryptic otherwise, it is also considered as fully-tryptic. Peptides that only fulfill the criterium on one terminus are semi-tryptic peptides. Lastly, peptides that are not fulfilling the criteria for both termini are non-tryptic peptides.

assign_peptide_type(
  data,
  aa_before = aa_before,
  last_aa = last_aa,
  aa_after = aa_after
)

Arguments

data

a data frame containing at least information about the preceding and C-terminal amino acids of peptides.

aa_before

a character column in the data data frame that contains the preceding amino acid as one letter code.

last_aa

a character column in the data data frame that contains the C-terminal amino acid as one letter code.

aa_after

a character column in the data data frame that contains the following amino acid as one letter code.

Value

A data frame that contains the input data and an additional column with the peptide type information.

Examples

data <- data.frame( aa_before = c("K", "S", "T"), last_aa = c("R", "K", "Y"), aa_after = c("T", "R", "T") ) assign_peptide_type(data, aa_before, last_aa, aa_after)
#> aa_before last_aa aa_after pep_type #> 1 K R T fully-tryptic #> 2 S K R semi-tryptic #> 3 T Y T non-tryptic
