The shortnames of sequences in the database are composed of two parts. Both parts are separated by a underscore (_).
The first part represents the species and the genus.
For example:
HoSa:Homo sapiens
MuMu:Mus musculus
RaNo:Rattus norvegicus
DaRe:Danio rerio
DrMe:Drosophila melanogaster
CaEl:Caenorhabditis elegans
MoBr:Monosiga brevicollis
SaCe:Saccharomyces cerevisiae
ArTh:Arabidopsis thaliana
ChRe:Chlamydomonas reinhardtii

The second part of the sequence shortname represents of the type of the sequence.
For example: Syx1 or Syx8

To search the database for shortnames, it is possible to type in complete shortnames or parts of them. A search can contain several entries speparated by a blank.


A search for Ykt62 in Arabidopsis thaliana and tomosyn in Homo sapiens would look like:

A search for all Homo sapiens sequences can simply achived by:

A search for all Syx5 sequences done by:

An empty field for the shortname parameter leads to the display of all protein sequences. It will take an extended calculation time until the results are shown.
