ICAM 1 related long non coding RNA: promoter analysis and expression in human retinal endothelial cells

BMC Res Notes
PMCID: 5944171
PMID: 29743093
DOI: 10.1186/s13104-018-3384-8

[…] leotide Polymorphism Database of the US National Center for Biotechnology Information []. The Genomatix Software Suite SNPInspector was used to search Matrix Library (search settings as described for MatInspector analysis) for promoter elements predicted to be impacted by these SNPs. Results were checked against chromatin immunoprecipitation-sequencing data in ENCODE (Encyclopedia of DNA Elements) […]


Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma transcriptome reveals the effect of FOXM1 on patient outcome through novel PIK3R3 mediated activation of PI3K signaling pathway

PMCID: 5908275
PMID: 29682174
DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.24621

[…] method. For best coverage of important variables, we included those with statistical and clinical significance on outcome, like age and tumor stage. SPSS 20.0 software was used for survival analyses.MatInspector software was used for identifying FOXM1-binding sites (FKHD) in the 5'sequence of PIK3R3 coding region (sequences GXP_260387-PIK3R3/Human, GXP_1817525-PIK3R3/Human, and GXP_4400643-PIK3R3 […]


Expression of Carbonic Anhydrase III, a Nucleus Pulposus Phenotypic Marker, is Hypoxia responsive and Confers Protection from Oxidative Stress induced Cell Death

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5861082
PMID: 29559661
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-23196-7

[…] to analyse species conservation ( In addition, we performed bioinformatic analysis of transcription factor binding sites on the 2 kb proximal promoter of Car3 using MatInspector (Genomatix Software Suite) with a matrix-similarity threshold of 0.85 and TF family p-value of ~0.05 or below. […]


CDK6 inhibits white to beige fat transition by suppressing RUNX1

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5845007
PMID: 29523786
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-03451-1

[…] line RUNX1-mediated browning, we employed a chromatin immunoprecipitation (CHIP) assay to determine if RUNX1 binds to RUNX1-consensus-binding sites in the mouse Ucp-1 and Pgc-1α genes. Bioinformatic (Matinspector) analysis (Supplementary Fig. ) identified three core consensus sequences (TGTGNNN, whereby NNN can stand for TTT or TCA) on the proximal promoter regions of Pgc-1α and Ucp-1 genes, respe […]


miR 25 3p, Positively Regulated by Transcription Factor AP 2α, Regulates the Metabolism of C2C12 Cells by Targeting Akt1

Int J Mol Sci
PMCID: 5877634
PMID: 29518009
DOI: 10.3390/ijms19030773

[…] he primers listed in .The nine purified PCR products were ligated into the KpnI/HindIII sites of the pGL3-Basic vector (Promega). AliBaba2.1 (Available online: [] and MatInspector (Available online: [] were used to predict the potential transcription factor binding sites. The AP-2α transc […]


Evidences for a New Role of miR 214 in Chondrogenesis

[…] oit2-public/contrav2/) for search of putative conserved TFBS. Stringency parameters: core match = 0.95 and similarity matrix = 0.85. The human, mouse and zebrafish promoter sequences were also fed to MatInspector (Genomatix Software GmbH) and only the TF predicted by the two algorithms were considered. Additionally, we analysed Chromatin Immunoprecipitation studies where some of the TFBS here pred […]
