[…] (6,7). In general, 3D motifs can be constructed manually or automatically using various methods. They have been constructed using conservation of sequence and structural features and compiled in the MegaMotifBase (8). Most methods; e.g. SPASM (9), HTHquery (10), PAR-3D (11), Superimpose (12) and RASMOT-3D PRO (13), require experimental data such as a known 3D motif to search for other similar str […]
