Structure Motivator: A tool for exploring small three-dimensional elements in proteins

David P Leader, E Milner-White
2012 BMC Structural Biology  
The software application, Structure Motivator, allows interactive exploration and analysis of such elements, and their resolution into sub-classes.  ...  The application has been applied both to classical motifs, such as the β-turn, and 'non-motif' structural elements, such as specific segments of helices.  ...  Acknowledgements We thank Attila Tajlil for migrating the MySQL database to Derby and the University of Glasgow for providing facilities for the work.  ...

Structural fragment clustering reveals novel structural and functional motifs in α-helical transmembrane proteins

Annalisa Marsico, Andreas Henschel, Christof Winter, Anne Tuukkanen, Boris Vassilev, Kerstin Scheubert, Michael Schroeder
2010 BMC Bioinformatics  
Seventy percent of the motifs are found in co-factor, ligand, and ion binding sites, 30% at protein interaction interfaces, and 12% bind specific lipids such as glycerol or cardiolipins.  ...  Conclusions: Our findings suggest that functional modules exist in membrane proteins, and that they occur in completely different evolutionary contexts and cover different binding sites.  ...  We thank Gihan Dawelbait for helping in functional annotation, Rainer Winnenburg and Dimitra Alexopoulou for critical reading of the manuscript. We thank the EU project Sealife for funding.  ...

Characterization of the Substrate Specificity and Mechanism of Protein Arginine Methyltransferase 1

Whitney Lyn Wooderchak
Most PRMT1 substrates are methylated within repeating 'RGG' and glycine-arginine rich motifs.  ...  However, PRMT1 also methylates a single arginine on histone-H4 that is not embedded in a glycine-arginine motif, indicating that PRMT1 protein substrates are not limited to proteins with 'RGG' sequences  ...  Using the MSDmotif server at EMBL-EBI (, the pdb was queried for structures harboring potential PRMT1 methylation sites.  ...
