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_08 of 30-Aug-2017 contains 1788 documentation entries, 1309 patterns, 1191 profiles and 1210 ProRule.

e.g. PDOC00022, PS50089, SH3, zinc finger
