NHR-scan in pipeline

PMCID: 3750112
PMID: 23990796
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1003689

[…] myc-rarαb1 mrna with respect to control uninjected embryos., the genomic sequence flanking zebrafish hoxb5b (−8 to +8 kb) was compared with the corresponding region for hoxb5 in mouse using mvista. nhr scan was used to identify binding sites for nuclear receptor., rarαb1 was identified by using blast against the zebrafish genome (ensemble_v7) with the human and mouse rarα1 a domains. macvector […]

[…] t3-regulated genes in vivo or under different treatment conditions.figure 4 , among the 278 tr target genes identified by chip-on-chip assay, 191 genes had 1 or more putative tre, as revealed by nhr scan analysis (http://www.cisreg.ca/cgi-bin/nhr-scan/nhr_scan.cgi), within the 8 kb sequences covered on the chip-on-chip slides (data not shown). to investigate if these tres were functional […]

[…] performed at least two times., to predict nrs that interact with src-2, promoter regions (spanning 10kb on either side) of candidate src-2 target genes were screened for nr binding motifs using the nhr scan tool (http://www.cisreg.ca/cgi-bin/nhr-scan/nhr_scan.cgi). src-2 binding regions in candidate genes were overlapped with predicted nr binding motifs to predict potential src-2/nr […]

[…] pgl3-basic vector, which was named as pgl3-hmir-194-2-pro and pgl3-hmir194-2 trim. the mutant 405-bp human mir-194-2 promoter had mutations of 3 putative hnf4-binding sites predicted by software of nhr-scan[] and hnf4 binding site scanner[] (for dna sequences see supplemental materials)., we pcr cloned a 2 kb fragment of the mouse mir-802 promoter (-2004 to -1 bp) into the mlui/xhoi sites […]

[…] this previous study , here we also found that the ets family motif was overrepresented (15%) in tr4-occupied peaks ()., we employed a second nuclear hormone receptor binding site prediction program, nhr-scan, to identify enriched repeat elements . of the dr elements, we identified dr1 sequences comprising the major site (29% of the 130 peaks at d11) with dr4 (5%) and dr0 (3%) motifs as minor […]
