ExPASy PROSITE is a database of protein domains, protein families and their functional sites.
This repository also provides profiles and associated patterns, which can be used to identify the above.
This version (20.91) was made available on 4 March 2013.
It contains 1,661 documentation entries, 1,053 profiles and 1,308 patterns.
The database can be searched by entering a document number, a ProRule description, a taxonomic series or by calling up a page, whereupon the proteins are listed according to the number of positive UniProtKB hits, from most to least.
The option is also provided to have a sequence scanned against PROSITE patterns and profiles.
In the Advanced search option that is available, additional criteria may be added when a scan request is entered to specify the results more accurately.
