prettyplot in pipeline

PMCID: 2923621
PMID: 20805894
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0012246

[…] trembl and interpro data banks were searched for sequences matching peptide p31-43 and p57-68 by using blast and fasta. sequence alignment was performed by using clustalw and visualized by prettyplot from the emboss suite., near-confluent caco2 cells in a 90-mm dish were incubated with egf and p31-43 at various times, after homogenization (10 mm tris-hcl [ph 7.4], 1 mm edta, […]

[…] by analyzing why these seemingly non-functional proteins gave high scores in homology searches with hmmsearch. to analyze these cases at the genome level we used artemis [] and showorf, plotorf and prettyplot from the emboss package []. we found that in most cases a functional protein could be restored by an alternative gene start or frame-shift (17 cases), which we consider "restorable […]
