Protein Families Examples

Protein Families

General help and description about the protein families is also available. This is a series of working examples, to be extended.

These are some example protein families, mainly chosen because they are small and convenient to look at. They may change over time as the families are updated.

Example 1

This little example shows one protein that is misannotated in PIR and several that are wrong in PFAMs

Example 2

This is a little example from Histidine Biosynthesis


Polymyxin resistance protein PmrJ, predicted deacetylase

A nice small family that you can compare to PFAM. There are two different views. The family centric view shows the whole family. The table that shows the other families that are also represented shows all families that are also related to the proteins in the table.

On the other hand, the protein centric view comes in from a single protein (e.g. if you have clicked a link from the protein page, and only shows you those other families that are related to this particular protein

  1. family centric
  2. gene centric
