Database of protein domains, families and functional sites
Tutorial and training materials by OpenHelix
|Learn to use the PROSITE, a database that gathers domain, functional site and protein family information. You can scan protein sequences against the entries in the PROSITE database using ScanProsite. Use the PRATT tool to discover patterns in a group of unaligned sequences or us the MyDomains Image Creator to create custom domain graphics for displaying your data.|
- how to access information on domains, functional sites and protein families in PROSITE
- to perform a quick and an advanced protein sequence scan
- to find patterns in protein sequences using PRATT
- to use MyDomains to create custom domain graphics

More about the resource:
The PROSITE resource is one database in a collection of protein-focused Swiss-Prot databases on the ExPASy proteomics server supported by the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics. This database was developed in parallel with Swiss-Prot and as a result, allows users to easily navigate through the wide array of protein information found in the Swiss-Prot collection of databases. PROSITE is also complemented by a tool called ProRule, which is a collection of rules based on profiles and patterns. This adds to the discriminatory power of the profiles and patterns found in PROSITE, by providing additional information about functionally and/or structurally critical amino acids.
