  1. Histone Database (View Publication)
    Full Name of the Resource : Histone fold sequences and structures
    Resource Category : Databases -> Protein Sequence Databases -> Databases of Individual Protein Families

    Brief Description : Histone proteins are often noted for their high degree of sequence conservation. It is less often recognized that the histones are a heterogeneous protein family. Furthermore, several classes of nonhistone proteins containing the histone fold motif exist. Novel histone and histone-fold protein sequences continue to be added to public databases every year. The Histone Database (http://genome.nhgri.nih.gov/histones/) is a searchable, periodically updated collection of histone-fold containing sequences derived from sequence-similarity searches of public databases. Sequence sets are presented in redundant and nonredundant FASTA form, hotlinked to GenBank sequence files. Partial sequences are also now in included in the database, which has considerably augmented its taxonomic coverage. Annotated alignments of full-length nonredundant sets of sequences are now available in both Web-viewable (HTML) and downloadable (PDF) formats. The database also provides summaries of current information on solved histone fold structures, post-translational modifications of histones, and the human histone gene complement.
