Microproteins are a novel and expanding group of small proteins encoded by less than 100-150 codons where these proteins are translated from small open reading frames (smORFs). We know that smORFs and the corresponding microproteins make up a large part of the genome and proteome, very little information on microprotein’s structural features exists in the literature. In this paper, we present the results of analyzing the predicted structures of 44 microproteins.
