finding binding sites - (Jul/13/2005 )


I'd like to know how to find the known binding sites for a particular gene, for e.g., human gene "otx2" by using tranfac database.



Assuming the Transfac database contains a matrix for this particular transcription factor, you would input the sequence and check to see if binding site(s) are represented in the output. Be aware that there are false positives in the output as well.
