SEQUENCE MOTIF - CONCEPT

Rules:
1.  Build the motif position by position, vertically.
2.  If fewer that 3 amino acid possibilities at a position include ALL three.
3.  If 4 or more, put an X at that position.

Length (6 to 10):

 

   

Protein 1   H   P   I   L   P   F  
Protein 2   H   R   I   L   F   Q  
Protein 3   H   R   I   L   Y   Q  
Protein 4   H   T   I   L   M   Q  
Protein 5   H   R   I   L   K   F  
Protein 6   H   P   I   L   A   F  
Protein 7   H   P   I   L   D   F  
 

Motif :

  H - [PTR] - I - L - x - [FQ]  

The following protein sequences match the profile:

Sequence 2    H    T    I    L    D    Q  
Sequence 3    H    T    I    L    H    F  
Sequence 4    H    T    I    L    D    Q  
Sequence 5    H    T    I    L    W    F
