Signature databases are vital tools for identifying distant relationships in novel sequences and hence for inferring protein function. InterPro is an integrated documentation resource for protein families, domains and functional sites, which amalgamates the efforts of the PROSITE, PRINTS, Pfam and ProDom database projects. Each InterPro entry includes a(More)
InterPro, an integrated documentation resource of protein families, domains and functional sites, was created in 1999 as a means of amalgamating the major protein signature databases into one comprehensive resource. PROSITE, Pfam, PRINTS, ProDom, SMART and TIGRFAMs have been manually integrated and curated and are available in InterPro for text- and(More)
The exponential increase in the submission of nucleotide sequences to the nucleotide sequence database by genome sequencing centres has resulted in a need for rapid, automatic methods for classification of the resulting protein sequences. There are several signature and sequence cluster-based methods for protein classification, each resource having distinct(More)
The SWISS-PROT group at EBI has developed the Proteome Analysis Database utilising existing resources and providing comparative analysis of the predicted protein coding sequences of the complete genomes of bacteria, archaea and eukaryotes (http://www.ebi.ac. uk/proteome/). The two main projects used, InterPro and CluSTr, give a new perspective on families,(More)
The applications of InterPro span a range of biologically important areas that includes automatic annotation of protein sequences and genome analysis. In automatic annotation of protein sequences InterPro has been utilised to provide reliable characterisation of sequences, identifying them as candidates for functional annotation. Rules based on the InterPro(More)
MOTIVATION The SWISS-PROT group at the EBI has developed the Proteome Analysis Database utilizing existing resources and providing comprehensive and integrated comparative analysis of the predicted protein coding sequences of the complete genomes of bacteria, archaea and eukaryotes. The Proteome Analysis Database is accompanied by a program that has been(More)
BACKGROUND Individuals with undiagnosed lung and colorectal cancers present with non-specific symptoms in primary care more often than matched controls. Increased access to diagnostic services for patients with symptoms generates more early-stage diagnoses, but the mechanisms for this are only partially understood. METHODS We re-analysed a UK-based(More)
InterPro (http://www.ebi.ac.uk/interpro/) is an integrated documentation resource for protein families, domains and sites, developed initially as a means of rationalizing the complementary efforts of the PROSITE, PRINTS, Pfam and ProDom database projects. It is a useful resource that aids the functional classification of proteins. Almost 90% of the(More)
