  • Prosite. Database of protein families and domains.
  • Prosite. Database of protein families and domains
  • PROSITE; a protein domain and family database
  • PROSITE consists of documentation entries describing protein domains, families and functional sites as well as associated patterns and profiles to identify them [More details / References / Disclaimer / Commercial users]. PROSITE is complemented by ProRule, a collection of rules based on profiles and patterns, which increases the discriminatory power of profiles and patterns by providing additional information about functionally and/or structurally critical amino acids [More details].

Description
  • The PROSITE data bank is composed of two ASCII (text) files. The firstfile (PROSITE.DAT) is a computer readable file that contains all theinformation necessary to programs that will scan sequence(s) with patternsandor matrices. The second file (PROSITE.DOC) contains textualinformation that fully documents each pattern and profile. We must pointout that we strongly urge software developers to build software tools thatmake use of both files. A list of patterns or profiles present in asequence is not very useful to biologists without the relevantdocumentation.p
  • The PROSITE database (a href=http:www.expasy.orgprositehttp:www.expasy.orgprositea) consists of a large collection of biologically meaningful signatures that are described as patterns or profiles. Each signature is linked to a documentation that gives useful biological information on the protein family, domain, or functional site identified by the signature.
