Small but Mighty: The Emerging World of Microproteins

During initial efforts to annotate genomes, many potential coding sequences were identified that were assumed to be too short to encode functional proteins. To reduce the number of annotations and reduce the risk of false positives, an arbitrary cutoff was therefore applied, and sequences shorter than 100 amino acids (aa) were filtered out.1 Later, it was discovered that many of these small open reading frames (smORFs) are translated to produce microproteins, or micropeptides, whose expression is apparently just as tightly controlled as for canonical proteins.1,2
