      Hello, I want to know what is the name of protein with sequence "cgt tct ata gat acg cga tga cgg tat acc atc cgc aaa gt" or how can i identify protein from sequence. Thanks a lot for answer becouse I tried couple ways (for example BLAST, uniprot, expasy etc.) and it didn´t work well. It is maybe just becouse I don ´t know how to use them.

      BLAST is very useful tool. You protein sequence is to short to identify a specific protein, apart from the sequence, you need to apply more information about the protein.

      The primary driving force of protein folding is burying hydrophobic residues in the core of the structure away from water. Putting a protein in a denaturing solution, such as urea overwhelms this driving force through mechanisms which are not completely understood. The traditional method, involves chemically treating the protein to break disulfide bridges, performing a partial digestion of the protein to get smaller fragments, separating the fragments chromate graphically, then sequencing using an Edman degradation (which pulls off a single amino acid at a time). You then align the overlapping fragments to get the full sequence. A variation on that process has been semi-automated in the form of protein sequencer devices. These days, the dominant method is probably one of the mass spectrographic approaches.
