List Analysis for upstream gene flanking regions containing CCATTTTTAGT (8 Gene Flanking Regions)

Description: This list of upstream gene flanking regions demonstrates the Motif Search list analysis widget. If you view this list, and wait a while, you'll see a list of motifs that match these regions, along with links to binding sites in Jaspar.

More information

The Shared Motif Search executes a BLAST+ run for each feature against the remaining features (if there are 10 features, there will be 10 1×9 BLAST runs). The BLAST results are then collated to find shared motifs. Only motifs which contain a C or G are included (there are always hundreds of shared motifs containing only A and T), and only motifs up to length 27 are shown. The list is truncated at 100 motifs. The score is based on the number of features that contain the motif (shown in the Num column), the DNA content of the motif (C and G score higher than A and T), and the length of the motif (longer motifs score higher). The group of features that share a motif is linked so you can create a list. If the top-scoring motif has other motifs close to it (defined by a SmithWaterman pairwise alignment distance), a sequence logo is displayed on the top summarizing that group of motifs, which are marked with an asterisk. Those are included at the end of the list if they score below the top 100. Put * in the Search: box to limit the list to only those motifs.

Motifs that contribute to the sequence logo (if any) are searched against motifs of the same length in the JASPAR2018 binding-site database. The best hit is shown in the rightmost three columns, with a link to the corresponding JASPAR page.

To investigate a particular motif further, use a tool like GOMo in the MEME Suite, which scans it for associated GO terms for a chosen species. Or, for example, look it up in a transcription factor binding sites list, like AGRIS for Arabidopsis. If you're interested in a particular motif, just type it in the search box to filter the results.
