Analyzing a Potential Drug Target N Myristoyltransferase of Plasmodium falciparum Through In Silico Approaches

PMCID: 3326958
PMID: 22529627
DOI: 10.4103/0974-777X.93761

[…] LCVHK) and Myristoyl-CoA: Protein N-myristoyltransferase signature 2(KFGEGDG) were found. Pattern, probability and description of the motifs are presented []. 3 pseudomotifs were also predicted using Quasimotifinder apart from those predicted using PROSCAN [].Disuphide bridges known as “switches for protein function”,[] result from covalent bonding of suphur from cysteine residues. Disulphide brid […]


Novel SPG11 mutations in Asian kindreds and disruption of spatacsin function in the zebrafish

PMCID: 2944959
PMID: 20390432
DOI: 10.1007/s10048-010-0243-8
call_split See protocol

[…] (5′ CGAACAATCCCTTCCAGATT 3′). All clones were verified using internal sequencing primers. Multiple sequence alignments were generated using MultAlin software [], and motif analysis was performed with QuasiMotiFinder []. […]


A tree based conservation scoring method for short linear motifs in multiple alignments of protein sequences

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 2396637
PMID: 18460207
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-9-229

[…] to predict the particular evolutionary history of each instance, which is a different and non-trivial task.Conservation scores have been repeatedly implemented in order to improve LM prediction. The QuasiMotiFinder [] algorithm uses a maximum likelihood-based model [] to estimate the conservation of instances that resemble Prosite signatures. While being a very robust statistical approach, it is […]


A new protein linear motif benchmark for multiple sequence alignment software

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 2374782
PMID: 18439277
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-9-213

[…] particular instances that are known to be functional. Such data collections include the eukaryotic linear motif (ELM) resource [] and ScanSite []. A number of tools have been developed, e.g. ELM [], QuasiMotiFinder [], MiniMotif [] and the ACS method [], that employ various methods, such as domain masking and evolutionary filtering respectively, to discover new occurrences of previously known mot […]


SLiMDisc: short, linear motif discovery, correcting for common evolutionary descent

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 1524906
PMID: 16855291
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkl486

[…] () efficiently discovering protein family signatures and other conserved regions, identifying SLiMs presents an inherently greater challenge. Web servers, such as eukaryotic linear motif (ELM) () and QuasiMotiFinder () employ various methods, such as domain masking and evolutionary filtering respectively, to discover new occurrences of previously known motifs. However, the web-based LMD method () […]
