GeneACT in pipeline

PMCID: 2724271
PMID: 19491311
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkp425

[…] de novo prediction of sequence motifs over-represented in proximal promoters compared to control sequences [for a review, see (,)]. examples for the former include storm in cread (), core_tf () and geneact () and for the latter dme () and the genomic identification of motifs described by xie et al. (). pwms of hif-1 have been previously used to identify genome-wide target genes. for instance, […]

[…] dna synthesizer (nihon technoservice, ushiku, ibaraki, japan) using phosphoramidites from glen research (sterling, virginia, usa), and 1 µmol, pore size 500 å, controlled pore glass (cpg) beads from geneact (fukuoka, japan). for the synthesis of eprobes with paired thiazole orange or thiazole pink moieties (d570, or in eprobe name indicated as “tp”), the eprimer protocol was changed by replacing […]

[…] seed matches with secondary elements that stabilize mrna. priority 1 calls had a destabilizing mrna element while priority 2 calls did not contain a destabilizing element in at least one species. geneact used the miranda algorithm to identify mirna target sites across three mammalian species. false-positives were eliminated with the differential binding site search against genes […]

[…] regulatory elements which are essential for d450-tata and p500/luc activities. to identify potential transcription factor binding motifs within these two sites, the sequences were queried using the geneact transcription factor binding site database. the analysis revealed that dr contains a putative e-box motif while pr contains a potential ikaros binding motif., to experimentally determine […]
