Introduction to the Rab database.|
The Rab Database is a collection of Rab protein sequences classified by HMM profiles.
A detailed description of the Rab protein classification can be found in:
Klöpper, T. H., Kienle, N., Fasshauer, D., and Munro S.
Untangling the evolution of Rab G proteins: implications of a comprehensive genomic analysis
BMC Biology 2012, 10:71 (PubMed / PDF)
In the Rabs section of the database you have the possibility to view our classified sequences (Rabs -> View Database) or to de novo classify protein sequences (Rabs -> Scan Sequence against HMMs). If you choose to view our classified sequences, you find additional information for each of the fields on the ViewDB site by clicking the question mark behind the field. If you choose to de novo classify protein sequences you may paste any protein sequence into the text field of the Find Motif site and hit the Submit-button. The results will be displayed shortly after.
For more information on the Rab family you may visit the lab pages of Sean Munro and Dirk Fasshauer.
Additional information about SNARE proteins are available at the SNARE Database.
If you have any further questions or would like to submit additional sequences to the database please feel free to write an email.
