  1. IRESite (View Publication)
    Full Name of the Resource : Experimentally studied internal ribosome entry sites
    Resource Category : Databases -> RNA -> RNA Sequence, Structure and Functions

    Brief Description : IRESite is a searchable collection of data concerning the Internal Ribosome Entry Segments (IRES) both of viral and cellular origin. IRESs are the RNA regions which are mostly defined functionally by their ability to attract a eukaryotic ribosomal translation initiation complex independently of presence of the commonly utilized 5'-terminal 7mG cap structure and thus to promote translation initiation even at the internal part of the RNA molecule. IRESite can provide a broad set of information referring to particular IRES - briefly: primary sequence data, functional data, RNA structure and possible ribosomal RNA complementarity data, RNA:protein interaction data, links to primary databases, information about the relevant experiments and more. Most of the data are not available in the primary databases and are manually extracted from literature sources by IRESite curators. New data can also be submitted through the publicly available IRESite web interface after creating a personal account, however their release needs the curators' approval.
