Peroxibase -- Peroxidase family classification database

What you can do:
Find information about peroxidase-coding sequences.
  • Peroxibase contains all identified peroxidase-encoding sequences (about 6000 sequences in 940 organisms).
  • They are distributed between 11 superfamilies and about 60 subfamilies.
  • All the sequences have been individually annotated and checked.
  • PeroxiBase can be consulted using six major interlink sections 'Classes', 'Organisms', 'Cellular localisations', 'Inducers', 'Repressors' and 'Tissue types'.
  • General documentation on peroxidases and PeroxiBase is accessible in the 'Documents' section containing 'Introduction', 'Class description', 'Publications' and 'Links'.
  • A tool to classify peroxidases based on the PROSITE profile methodology was also developed.
  • To improve their specificity and to prevent overlaps between closely related subfamilies the profiles were built using a new strategy based on the silencing of residues.
