digest - Reports on protein proteolytic enzyme or reagent cleavage sites
is a command line program from EMBOSS (“the European
Molecular Biology Open Software Suite”). It is part of the
"Protein:Motifs" command group(s).

Trypsin will not normally cut after 'KR' if
they are followed by any of 'KRIFLP'. Lys-C will not normally cut after 'K' if
it is followed by 'P'. Arg-C will not normally cut after 'R' if it is followed
by 'P'. V8-bicarb will not normally cut after 'E' if it is followed by any of
'KREP'. V8-phosph will not normally cut after 'DE' if they are followed by
'P'. Chymotrypsin will not normally cut after 'FYWLM' if they are followed by
'P'. Specifying unfavoured shows these unfavoured cuts as well as the favoured

digestion. This option is particularly useful for generating lists of peptide
sequences for protein identification using mass-spectrometry.
Default value: 1
Used for partial digestion. Shows all cuts
from favoured cut sites plus 1..3, 2..4, 3..5 etc but not (e.g.) 2..5.
Overlaps are therefore fragments with exactly one potential cut site within
As for overlap but fragments containing more
than one potential cut site are included.
