In silico identification of functional LC3 Interacting Region Motifs
iLIR provides easy integrated access to bioinformatics tools aiming to help researchers for assessing whether a protein is a potential functional LIR containing protein based solely on its amino acid sequence. A query sequence is analysed for: Results are displayed in a simple graphical form, accompanied with detailed tables. Examples of iLIR output for experimentally validated functional LIR containing proteins may be found in the Examples Page.

Note: noncanonical LIR-motifs, as for example the atypical motif recently discovered in NDP52 (von Muhlinen et al., 2012), are not currently detected by iLIR.
