A systematic comparative and structural analysis of protein phosphorylation sites based on the mtcPTM database

Genome Biol. 2007;8(5):R90. doi: 10.1186/gb-2007-8-5-r90.


mtcPTM is an online repository of human and mouse phosphosites in which data are hierarchically organized to preserve biologically relevant experimental information, thus allowing straightforward comparisons of phosphorylation patterns found under different conditions. The database also contains the largest available collection of atomic models of phosphorylatable proteins. Detailed analysis of this structural dataset reveals that phosphorylation sites are found in a heterogeneous range of structural and sequence contexts. mtcPTM is available on the web http://www.mitocheck.org/cgi-bin/mtcPTM/search.
