Over the past few years, it has become apparent that approximately 35% of the human proteome consists of intrinsically disordered regions. Many of these disordered regions are rich in short linear motifs (SLiMs) which mediate protein-protein interactions. Although these motifs are short and often partially conserved, they are involved in many important aspects of protein function, including cleavage, targeting, degradation, docking, phosphorylation, and other posttranslational modifications. The Eukaryotic Linear Motif resource (ELM) was established over 15 years ago as a repository to…
