To improve security and privacy, we are moving our web pages and services from HTTP to HTTPS.
To give users of web services time to transition to HTTPS, we will support separate HTTP and HTTPS services until the end of 2017.
From January 2018 most HTTP traffic will be automatically redirected to HTTPS. [more...]

Database of protein domains, families and functional sites

PROSITE consists of documentation entries describing protein domains, families and functional sites as well as associated patterns and profiles to identify them [More... / References / Commercial users].
PROSITE is complemented by ProRule, a collection of rules based on profiles and patterns, which increases the discriminatory power of profiles and patterns by providing additional information about functionally and/or structurally critical amino acids [More...].

Release 2017_11 of 22-Nov-2017 contains 1795 documentation entries, 1309 patterns, 1199 profiles and 1219 ProRule.
