Comparative genomics reveals conserved positioning of essential genomic clusters in highly rearranged Thermococcales chromosomes

PMCID: 4640148
PMID: 26166067
DOI: 10.1016/j.biochi.2015.07.008

[…] ble at . In a second predictive method, we used the mini-ORBs sequences identified in Pyrococcus abyssi by Matsunaga et al. as a matrix for oriC prediction using FITBAR available at . In this case, the search algorithm parameters were log-odds PSSM, with a local Markov Model to compute the p-value of the newly predicted ORB site […]


Structural and Mechanistic Basis of Zinc Regulation Across the E. coli Zur Regulon

PLoS Biol
PMCID: 4219657
PMID: 25369000
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pbio.1001987

[…] to the recognition of E. coli Zur ,,,. This pattern was then used as a search filter of E. coli (K12, strain MG1655) promoter regions to identify possible novel Zur-regulated genes using the program Fitbar . The search identified four promoters, including all three of the known Zur regulated genes, and predicted a single novel Zur binding site 34 bases upstream of the periplasmic lysozyme inhibit […]


PePPER: a webserver for prediction of prokaryote promoter elements and regulons

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 3472324
PMID: 22747501
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-13-299

[…] belonging to the same biological process or metabolic pathway. The database is limited to six closely related bacteria (Shewanella, ThermotogalesBacillales and Desulfovibrionales). On the other hand FITBAR [] is dedicated to TFBS mining and discovery, RegAnalyst [] and ProdoNet [] are webservers enabling integration of data on proteomics and metabolic pathways and provide subsequent graphical rep […]
