Low-complexity regions appear to be common in protein sequences and although funcons remain to be elucidated for most of them, they have been increasingly found to play crucial biological roles. Because most of these regions show poor conservation across protein families, it is difficult to compare them using common sequence analysis techniques. This study asks whether low-complexity regions play important roles in protein bind and if they are crucial to the overall functions of the proteins to which they belong.
