[…] regions masked using the built‐in repeat masking algorithm in the ucsc genome browser and tandem repeat finder (benson, ). de novo motif discovery was performed using the command‐line version of webmotifs (romer et al., ). the set of 75 peak sequences was used in three different motif discovery programs: alignace (hughes et al., ), weeder (pavesi et al., ) and mdscan (liu et al., ). […]

[…] expressed genes using two of the most widely used tools for this type of in silico analysis, opossum only identified the binding site for one of the 19 factors shown in (i.e. cebpa) and webmotifs failed to identify any significant motifs at all (see figure s11 in ). by contrast, our direct measurements of differential levels of histone acetylation allowed us to select […]

[…] and is also enriched for the cell division go category (p = 0.0018), a mitotic related category, intimately associated with meiotic divisions as well. second, using de novo motif search algorithms (webmotifs; http://fraenkel.mit.edu/webmotifs/ and []), we found that the promoters of these genes are highly enriched for the presence of the middle sporulation element (mse) (specificity score […]

[…] database (http://www.sabiosciences.com/chipqpcrsearch.php?app=tfbs)., finally, we determined how many genes in the gene clusters have e2f binding sites. we applied the motif discovery tool, webmotifs to find shared motifs in the gene clusters predicted to the e2f targets using binding site enrichment analysis (bsea). the results revealed that a motif called e2f_tdp, gcgssaaa, […]

[…] regulates donor preference during switching. to further investigate the possibilities that the predicted downstream gene clusters are truly regulated by fkh1, we applied the motif discovery tool, webmotifs [] to find shared motifs in these gene clusters. the results revealed that a motif called fork_head, gtaaacaa, is identified as the most significant motif among these gene clusters [].
