Dear BIOPEP-UWM users,

it is a great pleasure to announce that the following new opportunities are available

in the BIOPEP-UWM database (i.e. databases of bioactive and sensory peptides):

-          Possibility of annotation of sequences containing D-amino acid residues

-          Search options including exact match of the query sequence and search based on InChIKeys

-          The following new  options available via the “Analysis” tab:

-          Conversion of amino acid sequences into the SMILES code. The application accepts sequences containing 20 protein amino acids and their D-enantiomers written using standard one-letter code, phosphoserine (symbol “B”) and C-terminal amide group (symbol ”~”) (see “SMILES” tab)

-          “Batch processing” option allowing processing up to 30 sequences submitted in FASTA format (via the “Analysis” tab). This option allows calculation of all quantitative parameters characterizing proteins as sources of bioactive peptides as well as occurrence of particular peptides in a set of protein sequences (See “Definitions” tab)

-          Application enabling finding the enzymes with desired specificity (see “Enzyme(s) action” tab) and enzymes releasing C- and N-termini of desired peptides (see “Find the enzyme for peptide release” tab). Additional recognition sequences and cutting sequences are added according to specificity matrices in the MEROPS database (see “Enzyme(s) action” tab)

Welcome to the BIOPEP-UWM News toolbar.  We would like to encourage you to submit the peptide sequences to complete our database with newly dicovered bioactive peptides. To do this, please use the toolbar called "Submit new peptide sequence" as well as provide the reference paper  in which the new peptide was published. Thank you for the cooperation.
