SiTaR citations


Most of the tight positional conservation of transcription factor binding sites near the transcription start site reflects their co localization within regulatory modules

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 5117513
PMID: 27871221
DOI: 10.1186/s12859-016-1354-5

[…] corresponding to significantly enriched intersections and thereby to discover candidate RMs.Many computer programs predict TFBSs (reviewed by []). Some programs focus on sequence pattern (P-Match []; SiTaR []), particularly early programs (reviewed in []). Several exploit combinations of motifs, but not consistent positioning (Cister []; COMET []; AliBaba2 []; Ahab [–]; SCORE []). Programs based o […]

Front Microbiol
PMCID: 4319478

[…] ed organisms.For both host and pathogen transcription factor binding motifs and binding sites can be obtained from databases, e.g., TRANSFAC (Matys et al., ), or predicted with bioinformatic tools as SiTaR (Fazius et al., ). […]


Microevolution of Candida albicans in Macrophages Restores Filamentation in a Nonfilamentous Mutant

PLoS Genet
PMCID: 4256171
PMID: 25474009
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1004824

[…] d at the Gene Expression Omnibus (GSE56174) and can be found in . Nrg1 binding sites (A/C)(A/C/G)C3T in putative promoter regions (usually −1000 bp/+50 bp) of all C. albicans genes were determined by SiTaR allowing no mismatch. Fisher's exact test was used to determine if the Nrg1 motif-containing promoters were overrepresented in genes specifically upregulated twofold in the Evo strain, as compa […]
