The EMOTIF database

What you can do:
Search for highly conserved and specific protein sequence motifs.
  • The EMOTIF database is a collection of more than 170 000 highly specific and sensitive protein sequence motifs representing conserved biochemical properties and biological functions.
  • These protein motifs are derived from 7697 sequence alignments in the BLOCKS+ database (released on June 23, 2000) and all 8244 protein sequence alignments in the PRINTS database (version 27.0)
  • Search algorithms employing the EMOTIF patterns can identify and classify more widely divergent sequences than methods based on global sequence similarity.
  • protein motifs
  • protein blocks
  • conserved protein sequences
  • protein motif data warehouse
