[Protein-analysis] how to look for motif databases after a MEME result?

Dear Mailing List,

I retrieved with PSI-Blast the top 100 proteins with similarity to the one
I'm interested in.

I then ran the 100 FASTA protein sequences into MEME, to find conserved
motifs across these proteins.

I retrieved a list of "candidate" motifs which are highly conserved across
the vast majority of my input.

I would now like to know if any of these candidate motifs corresponds to
something already described in databases and/or literature.

Where should I look at? What shall I do?

Thank you all in advance
