Function General function(s) of a protein
Catalytic activity Reaction(s) catalyzed by an enzyme
Cofactor Non-protein substance required for enzyme activity
Enzyme regulation Enzyme regulatory mechanism
Biophysicochemical properties Biophysical and physicochemical properties
Pathway Associated metabolic pathways
Active site Amino acid(s) directly involved in the activity of an enzyme
Metal binding Binding site for a metal ion
Binding site Binding site for any chemical group (co-enzyme, prosthetic group, etc.)
Site Any interesting single amino acid site on the sequence
Calcium binding Position(s) of calcium binding region(s) within the protein
Zinc finger Position(s) and type(s) of zinc fingers within the protein
DNA binding Position and type of a DNA-binding domain
GO ‘Molecular function’ Selection of Gene Ontology (GO) terms
Keywords ‘Molecular function’ Selection of controlled vocabulary which summarises the content of an entry
Keywords ‘Biological process’ Selection of controlled vocabulary which summarises the content of an entry
Keywords ‘Ligand’ Selection of controlled vocabulary which summarises the content of an entry
