c Myb Binding Sites in Haematopoietic Chromatin Landscapes

PLoS One
PMCID: 4514710
PMID: 26208222
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0133280

[…] cell-types where c-Myb is upregulated: erythroleukaemia (K562) and promyelocytic leukaemia (NB4) [].To predict potential c-Myb binding sites (c-Myb footprints), we first scanned the human genome with MotifLab [] using four c-Myb motifs from the TRANSFAC database []. We identified more than 19 million c-Myb motif instances and filtered these against cell-specific DNase I footprints from the six dif […]


Otx2 ChIP seq Reveals Unique and Redundant Functions in the Mature Mouse Retina

PLoS One
PMCID: 3928427
PMID: 24558479
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0089110

[…] Motiflab tool was used to load UCSC tracks and evaluate region coverage of each criterion. Peaks were then sorted according to these criteria. Global mean rank varied according to the number of peaks […]


Bioinformatic analysis reveals an evolutional selection for DNA:RNA hybrid G quadruplex structures as putative transcription regulatory elements in warm blooded animals

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 3905843
PMID: 23999096
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkt781

[…] Motif masking for CpG islands and G-rich transcription factor binding sites (TFBSs) was conducted using the software MotifLab version 1.07 (). A list of IDs for the protein-coding genes in human (GRCh37.p11) was obtained from the Ensembl genes database (release 72). A CpG island BED file for human was downloaded usi […]
