Leitmotif: protein motif scanning 2.0.

Summary of "Leitmotif: protein motif scanning 2.0."

Motif-HMM (mHMM) scanning has been shown to possess unique advantages over standardly used sequence-profile search methods (e.g. HMMER, PSI-BLAST) since it is particularly well suited to discriminate proteins with variations inside conserved motifs (e.g. family subtypes) or motifs lacking essential residues (false positives, e.g. pseudoenzymes).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A scanning probe microscopy technique that uses an ultramicroelectrode as the scanning probe that simultaneously records changes in electrochemical potential as it scans thereby creating topographical images with localized electrochemical information.

A putative protein interaction module, approximately 70 amino acids long, that forms a small five-helix bundle with two large interfaces which may homo- and hetero-oligomerize, or bind non-sterile-alpha motif targets. The sterile alpha motif is present in a wide variety of eukaryotic proteins that function in diverse biological processes.

A tripartite motif protein consisting of an N-terminal RING finger, two B-box type ZINC FINGERS, and C-terminal PHD domain. It functions as a transcriptional repressor by associating with Kruppel-association box domain (KRAB domain) transcription factors and has E3-SUMO-ligase activity towards itself and also sumoylates INTERFERON REGULATORY FACTOR-7 to reduce its activity as a transcriptional activator. It can also function as a ubiquitin protein ligase towards TUMOR SUPPRESSOR PROTEIN P53.

Scanning microscopy in which a very sharp probe is employed in close proximity to a surface, exploiting a particular surface-related property. When this property is local topography, the method is atomic force microscopy (MICROSCOPY, ATOMIC FORCE), and when it is local conductivity, the method is scanning tunneling microscopy (MICROSCOPY, SCANNING TUNNELING).

A family of RNA-BINDING PROTEINS that contain an RNA RECOGNITION MOTIF and two ribonucleoprotein (RNP) domains which bind RNA, in addition to other domains that allow for high affinity binding, sequence specificity, and protein interactions. Examples of RNA recognition motif proteins include HETEROGENEOUS NUCLEAR RIBONUCLEARPROTEINS (hnRNP) and EMBRYONIC LETHAL ABNORMAL-VISION (ELAV) proteins.
