biocatnet TEED v12.1

Thiamine diphosphate Dependent Enzymes Engineering Database (TEED) version12.1

part of the BioCatNet

This Internet database integrates information on sequence, structure and function of thiamine dependent enzymes.

The BioCatNet Database System aims to collect and present comprehensive information about biocatalysts: sequence, structure, educts, products, environmental conditions and kinetics. Moreover, it will reveal structure-function relationships to boost development of novel biocatalysts.

To use the full set of tools or to contribute to the BioCatNet by posting functional information, please register.

The TEED combines sequence, structure and function information on ThDP-dependent enzymes. Thus, it allows for the systematic analysis of this vast and diverse protein family and serves as a comprehensive navigation tool. By enrichment with additional information on the composition of the sequences and structures, the underlying family classification and linked taxonomic information, the TEED forms the most comprehensive repository of this protein family.
