    Full Name of the Resource : Active Sequence Collection
    Resource Category : Databases -> Protein Sequence Databases -> Protein sequence motifs and active sites

    Brief Description : ASC (Active Sequences Collection) is a database of short amino acid sequences with known biological activity. The current version is substantially improved as compared to the previous release; it now includes more than 1300 different active short protein sequences, each sequence being linked to the corresponding PUBMED literature reference. The entries are organized in six sections (3 more than the previous release): AIRS (Autoimmunity Related Sequences), DVP (Delivery Vectors Peptides), SSP (Structure of Solved Peptides), BAC (BioACtive peptides), DORRS (Database Of RGD Related Sequences), and TRANSIT (TRANsglutamination SITes). This release is characterized by a relevant reorganization of the structural and functional information, and increase of literature references and links to other databases. Aim of ASC is to help elucidating the biological role of proteins and to help new-drugs discovery. The main feature of this collection is the focus on specific biological functions and the lack of "noisy" signal. The web address to access ASC database is: which also offers a new query interface to compare protein sequences with the ASC collection, as well as an updating interface to allow contribution of new referenced active sequences from the users.
