MegaMotifBase -- a database of structural motifs in protein families and superfamilies

What you can do:
Find structural segments or motifs for protein structures.
  • Motifs are recognized on the basis of both sequence conservation and preservation of important structural features such as amino acid preference, solvent accessibility, secondary structural content, hydrogen-bonding pattern and residue packing.
  • This database provides 3D orientation patterns of the identified motifs in terms of inter-motif distances and torsion angles.
  • Important applications of structural motifs are also provided in several crucial areas such as similar sequence and structure search, multiple sequence alignment and homology modeling.
  • MegaMotifBase can be a useful resource to gain knowledge about structure and functional relationship of proteins.
