UniProt release 1.8
Published April 26, 2004
Two new completely annotated microbial proteomes
We have now completed the annotation of two more microbial genomes, namely those of Buchnera aphidicola (subsp. Baizongia pistaciae) and Methanococcus jannaschii. The total number of microbial genomes where all proteins are annotated in Swiss-Prot is now 8 and more are yet to come.
Cross-references to Structural and functional annotation of Arabidopsis thaliana gene and protein families (GeneFarm)
We have added cross-references to the Structural and functional annotation of Arabidopsis thaliana gene and protein families (GeneFarm), available at http://genoplante-info.infobiogen.fr/Genefarm/index.htpl.
The identifiers of the appropriate DR line are:
|Resource identifier||GeneFarm's unique identifier for a gene.|
|Optional information 1||GeneFarm's identifier for a gene family.|
O04500: DR GeneFarm; 1671; 91.
Changes concerning the controlled vocabulary for PTMs
We are continuously overhauling the annotation of post-translational modifications (PTMs). Sulfation sites are described in the description field of the feature key MOD_RES, all entries with such a site contain the keyword 'Sulfation'. The initially defined controlled vocabulary for sulfation sites is listed below:
Sulfotyrosine Sulfoserine Sulfothreonine
