PRRDB -- Pattern Recognition Receptor Database

What you can do:
A comprehensive database of pattern-recognition receptors and their ligands.
  • Innate immune system employs a set of receptors called pattern recognition receptors (PRRs) that recognize evolutionarily conserved patterns from pathogens called pathogen associated molecular patterns (PAMPs).
  • PRRDB provides extensive information about pattern recognition receptors and their ligands.
  • The current version of database contains around 500 patterns recognizing receptors from 77 distinct organisms ranging from insects to human.
  • This includes 177 Toll-like receptors, 124 are Scavenger receptors and 67 are Nucleotide Binding Site-Leucine repeats rich receptors.
  • The database also provides information about 266 ligands that includes carbohydrates, proteins, nucleic acids, glycolipids, glycoproteins, lipopeptides.
  • A number of web tools have been integrated in PRRDB in order to provide following services: i) searching on any field; ii) database browsing; and iii) BLAST search against the pattern-recognition receptors.
  • PRRDB also provides external links to standard databases like Swiss-Prot and Pubmed.
