This subsection of the ‘Sequence annotation (Features)’ section describes interesting single amino acid sites on the sequence that are not defined in any another subsection of ‘Sequence annotation’.
The ‘Site’ subsection is frequently used for:
1. Cleavage sites
When the protease is known, it is specified:
Autocatalytic cleavages are specified:
Related keyword: Autocatalytic cleavage
2. Inhibitory sites for proteases
When the protease that is subject to inhibition is known, it is specified:
Related keyword: Protease inhibitor
3. Breakpoint sites for fusion proteins due to chromosomal rearrangement
Related keyword: Chromosomal rearrangement
Each ‘Site’ subsection may refer to a single amino acid or to a peptide bond, which is represented by the positions of the two flanking amino acids.
