  1. NPD (View Publication)
    Full Name of the Resource : Nuclear Protein Database
    Resource Category : Databases -> Protein Sequence Databases -> Protein Localization and Targeting

    Brief Description : The NPD is a curated database that contains information on more than 1200 vertebrate proteins that are thought, or are known, to localise to the cell nucleus. Each entry is annotated with information on predicted protein size and isoelectric point, as well as any repeats, motifs or domains within the protein sequence. In addition, information on the sub-nuclear localisation of each protein is provided and the biological and molecular functions are described using Gene Ontology (GO) terms. The database is searchable by keyword, protein name, sub-nuclear compartment and protein domain / motif. Links to other databases are provided (e.g. Entrez, SWISS-PROT, OMIM, PubMed, PubMed Central). Thus, NPD provides a gateway through which the nuclear proteome may be explored. The database can be accessed at http: / / and is updated monthly.
