MoMo -- Find statistically significant PTM motifs!
I've been recently reintroduced to this "motif" idea. The idea is that the enzymes or whatever that modify proteins recognize certain strings of amino acids available in many different proteins as where they should put their PTMs.
Proteome Discoverer 2.3 will have a neat little Motif add-on when it releases shortly!
If you need more, MEME suite has TONS of motif tools.
You can read about MOMO -- the newest addition -- here.
And...if you're thinking that something else had that name but you couldn't remember what --
You probably had a friend with a Civic or Sentra with a turbocharger that was WAY too big for it that had stickers like these all over the inside of it!
