Re:

... acids belong to signal peptide (in reality it's much longer). In such case, you want your primer to start at GTC and go on further. By lipoprotein motif he probably meant whether is it homologous to lipoproteins (you know, good and bad cholesterol, HDLP, LDLP). I don't know whether they have some ...

Sequencing question/primer design

... that is in frame (in frame as in the Open reading frame w/ ATG?) and removes the signal peptide. Additionally, does XXX gene have a lipoprotein motif? I'm not sure what he is referring to in that question. I know a signal peptide is attached to protein to transport it to where it needs to go ...

Re: DNA methylation

... and the pattern for cytosines is not restricted to CpG nor is the pattern remotely similar for adenine (e.g. GATC is a frequently modified motif in bacterial DNA). The reason of course is they produce different enzymes with the necessary capabilities. One of the similarities between eukaryotes ...
