Identification of functional clusters of transcription factor binding motifs in genome sequences: the MSCAN algorithm
TLDR
We present a novel method, MSCAN, that circumvents the training data problem by measuring the statistical significance of any non-overlapping combination of TFBS in a window. Expand

Molecular pathway profiling of T lymphocyte signal transduction pathways; Th1 and Th2 genomic fingerprints are defined by TCR and CD28-mediated signaling
BackgroundT lymphocytes are orchestrators of adaptive immunity. Naïve T cells may differentiate into Th1, Th2, Th17 or iTreg phenotypes, depending on environmental co-stimulatory signals. To identifyExpand

The use of chromogenic reference substrates for the kinetic analysis of penicillin acylases.
Determination of kinetic parameters of penicillin acylases for phenylacetylated compounds is complicated due to the low K(m) values for these substrates, the lack of a spectroscopic signal, and theExpand

The role of hydrophobic active-site residues in substrate specificity and acyl transfer activity of penicillin acylase.
Penicillin acylase of Escherichia coli catalyses the hydrolysis and synthesis of beta-lactam antibiotics. To study the role of hydrophobic residues in these reactions, we have mutated threeExpand

High-throughput screening of a large collection of non-conventional yeasts reveals their potential for aroma formation in food fermentation.
Saccharomyces yeast species are currently the most important yeasts involved in industrial-scale food fermentations. However, there are hundreds of other yeast species poorly studied that are highlyExpand
