Searches for similarities between proteins by simultaneous matching of multiple motifs. SCANMOT is a server that utilizes the occurrence and position of several conserved motifs along a protein sequence. It is possible to search for similar sequences in entire sequence databases using these conserved regions and the spacing as sole restraints. It can also be useful for applications such as the investigation of distant relationships and cross-family evolutionary connections among proteins.
