Human Mitochondrial Protein Database

What you can do:
Search the Human Mitochondrial Protein Database (HMPDb) which provides comprehensive data on mitochondrial and human nuclear encoded proteins involved in mitochondrial biogenesis, function and diseases.
  • Hosted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the site merges info on mitochondrial protein structure and function from scattered databases, including SwissProt, GenBank, and the Neuromuscular Disease Center site.
  • Looking for information on protein structure? The site lets you quickly search for 3D images of mitochondrial proteins, such as cytochrome c, from eight different species.
  • You can parse the organelle's own DNA sequence to find out which segments code for proteins and which are edited out. Another tool lets you compare samples from more than 50 human populations from around the globe and highlight differences that can provide clues about human evolution and migration.
  • The site also links to accounts of diseases connected to mitochondrial malfunctions.
