Intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) have no fixed three-dimensional (3D) structures under physiological conditions, with the content being about 51% in human proteomics. IDPs are associated with many human diseases, such as cancer, diabetes, and neurodegenerative diseases. Because IDPs do not crystallize and have diverse conformers, traditional experimental methods such as crystallization and NMR can hardly capture their conformation ensemble and just provide average structural characters of IDPs.
