To generate consensus motifs using known substrate sequences, use MotifGen.
To select optimum proteases for MassSpec analysis that would not cut at the desired motif, use PeptiCut.
x = any amino acid or singularly omitted amino acid
X = any amino acid
1 = Hydrophobic - aliphatic: A/I/L/V
2 = Hydrophobic - aromatic: F/W/Y
3 = Neutral - polar side chains: M/N/C/S/Q/T
4 = Acidic: D/E
5 = Basic: R/H/K
6 = Unique: G/P

Multiple motifs separated by commas can be searched
