    Table 2: Resources

    Experimental Models: Cell Lines
    SentencesResources
    Cell line and cultures: Human derived neuroblastoma cells (SH-SY5Y) were cultured in DMEM-F12 (Invitrogen) medium supplemented with 10% (v/v) fetal calf serum (FCS), 100 U/mL penicillin and 100 μg/mL streptomycin (Invitrogen, Carlsbad, CA).
    SH-SY5Y
    suggested: None
    Software and Algorithms
    SentencesResources
    TANGO is an algorithm that predicts aggregation nucleating regions in unfolded polypeptide chains.
    TANGO
    suggested: (TANGO, RRID:SCR_001770)
    Statistical analysis was performed by one way ANOVA tests with Tukey comparison in the software GraphPad (Prism).
    GraphPad
    suggested: (GraphPad Prism, RRID:SCR_002798)

    Results from OddPub: We did not detect open data. We also did not detect open code. Researchers are encouraged to share open data when possible (see Nature blog).


    Results from LimitationRecognizer: An explicit section about the limitations of the techniques employed in this study was not found. We encourage authors to address study limitations.

    Results from TrialIdentifier: No clinical trial numbers were referenced.


    Results from Barzooka: We found bar graphs of continuous data. We recommend replacing bar graphs with more informative graphics, as many different datasets can lead to the same bar graph. The actual data may suggest different conclusions from the summary statistics. For more information, please see Weissgerber et al (2015).


    Results from JetFighter: Please consider improving the rainbow (“jet”) colormap(s) used on pages 9 and 5. At least one figure is not accessible to readers with colorblindness and/or is not true to the data, i.e. not perceptually uniform.


    Results from rtransparent:
    • Thank you for including a conflict of interest statement. Authors are encouraged to include this statement when submitting to a journal.
    • No funding statement was detected.
    • No protocol registration statement was detected.

    Results from scite Reference Check: We found no unreliable references.


    About SciScore

    SciScore is an automated tool that is designed to assist expert reviewers by finding and presenting formulaic information scattered throughout a paper in a standard, easy to digest format. SciScore checks for the presence and correctness of RRIDs (research resource identifiers), and for rigor criteria such as sex and investigator blinding. For details on the theoretical underpinning of rigor criteria and the tools shown here, including references cited, please follow this link.
