FAD or NADP Rossmann-fold detector

[Servers Home]

Searches any protein sequence for the [V/I]XGX(1-2)GX(2)GX(3)[G/A] motif: protein sequences that contain this motif likely adopt the Rossmann fold and bind to FAD or NADP cofactors.

Membrane proteins contain a larger frequency of glycine residues than soluble protein sequences and should not be tested here for the Rossmann fold. The program MOMENT, http://nihserver.mbi.ucla.edu/moment/, can be used to detect probable membrane protein sequences.

Enter the sequence of the protein below (use single-letter code only):

The protein sequences from 25 bacterial genomes were searched for the [V/I]XGX(1-2)GX(2)GX(3)[G/A] motif: proteins containing the motif are listed in the following link:
