InterProScan


Databases of protein domains and functional sites have become vital resources for the prediction of protein functions. During the last decade, several signature- recognition methods have evolved to address different sequence analysis problems, resulting in rather different and, for the most part, independent databases. Diagnostically, these resources have different areas of optimum application owing to the different strengths and weaknesses of their underlying analysis methods. Thus, for best results, search strategies should ideally combine all of them.

 

InterPro is a collaborative project aimed at providing an integrated layer on top of the most commonly used signature databases by creating a unique, non- redundant characterisation of a given protein family, domain or functional site.

 

The InterPro database integrates PROSITE, PRINTS, Pfam, ProDom, SMART, TIGRFAMs, PIR superfamily, SUPERFAMILY Gene3D, PANTHER and HAMAP databases. InterPro data is distributed in XML format and it is freely available under the InterPro Consortium copyright. The InterPro project home page is at http://www.ebi.ac.uk/interpro.
