Protein Databases

Post by is5298mih » Tue Mar 28, 2006 9:18 pm

Hello,

I am interested in looking at protein sequences and find out information such as nuclear localization signals, specific domains that may be relevant in transcription and tertiary structure predictions. Any specific online tool(s) you can recommend?

Thank you

You can do a blast search on pubmed.... (It's kinda tough for me to lead you through it online.) If you're affiliated with a university you can probably find someone to help you.

simply ....you'd have to:
1. search for the gene/amino acid sequence for a particular organism (usually you can find the protein and gene sequences under the same accession numbers).

2. Then you can do a general pubmed search for structures (predicted structures) of a protein in the literature.

Be patient!! Give it a shot!!!! ( http://www.pubmed.com ) and if you're having trouble let me know ... I can ATTEMPT to help (but i can't make a promise that i'll be able to FIGURE it out!)

best wishes!
- KIM
