Database of protein domains, families and functional sites

new icon

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 2024_03 of 29-May-2024 contains 1942 documentation entries, 1311 patterns, 1388 profiles and 1404 ProRule.

Quick Scan mode of ScanProsite
Quickly find matches of your protein sequences to PROSITE signatures (max. 10 sequences). [?] Examples

For UniProtKB/TrEMBL accessions/identifiers, only those of entries belonging to reference proteomes are accepted.

Exclude motifs with a high probability of occurrence from the scan
