I have the 1990 FJ Dice paper that outlines a pentapeptide that targets cytosolic proteins for lysosomal proteolysis

The motif is either


However it gets more complicated.  It doesnt matter the order of the 4 resides before/after the Q.

I have no idea how to write this in a way that will make sense to feed into fuzzpro.  I am happy to do multiple runs of fuzzpro and merge results but even then.....

I could write a script to feed all possible options to fuzzpro but as I am also screening against the whole mouse proteome its going to be messy.

Anyone got suggestions?
