Table 2 Rule of thumb quality scoring scheme

From: Experimental detection of short regulatory motifs in eukaryotic proteins: tips for good practice as well as for bad

Score Evidence
−1 Contradictory evidence
0 No evidence
1 Indirect supporting evidence
2 Direct supporting evidence for binding but not for in-cell function
2 Evidence in-cell that proteins associate, but direct supporting evidence for motif binding in vitro is lacking
3 Direct supporting evidence for both binding and in-cell function
