Sequence logos of the N-terminal and C-terminal DCX motifs. Multiple alignments of the motifs from the DCX motifs are shown as sequence logos. The height of each amino acid represents bits of information and is proportional to its conservation at that position (y-axis), after the sequences have been weighted and frequencies adjusted by the expected amino acid frequency. Below the logos is the numbering of amino acids within the internal A-D subdomains. This SeqLogo represents the Lawrence Gibbs sampler motif-finding algorithm.
