On the other hand, motifs define amino acid arrangements conserved between protein family members and represent powerful tools for assigning function to protein sequences.  ...  The ideal motif would identify all members of a protein family but in practice many motifs identify both family members and unrelated proteins, referred to as True Positive (TP) and False Positive (FP)  ...  We also acknowledge institutional support from the Junta de Andalucía to the CABD, and to the Unit of Information Resources for Research at the "Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas" (CSIC)  ...

2013 Computational and Mathematical Methods in Medicine  
Our methods uncover what appears to be a predilection for protein-nucleic acid interactions among LEA client proteins, which is suggestive of subcellular residence.  ...  Here, we use sequence analysis and homology modeling of the client proteins to ascertain common sequence and structural properties that may contribute to binding affinity with the protective LEA protein  ...  For both patterns, PDBeMotif suggests-based on existing 3D structural data of proteins containing these sequence patterns-that glycerophosphate, ribose, and deoxyribose are among the structure-bound ligands  ...
