||Help other proteins or RNA in achieving proper folded state; prevent protein aggregation; help misfolded proteins to refold.
||Function as a result of disorder, often connecting two ordered domains and allow regulation of the distance between them.
||Store and help remove/neutralize heavy metals for detoxification.
||Permits protein modification, either by chemical additions or by protease cleavage.
||Assemble, regulate, and stabilize protein complexes.
|Molecular recognition effectors
||Allow the binding of multiple partners with high specificity and low affinity, and is commonly used for signaling.
|Molecular recognition scavengers
||Store and/or neutralize their ligands.
||No experimental evidence supporting or disproving the role of the region in protein function.
