MINT, the molecular interaction database: 2009 update

Nucleic Acids Res. 2010 Jan;38(Database issue):D532-9. doi: 10.1093/nar/gkp983. Epub 2009 Nov 6.


MINT ( is a public repository for molecular interactions reported in peer-reviewed journals. Since its last report, MINT has grown considerably in size and evolved in scope to meet the requirements of its users. The main changes include a more precise definition of the curation policy and the development of an enhanced and user-friendly interface to facilitate the analysis of the ever-growing interaction dataset. MINT has adopted the PSI-MI standards for the annotation and for the representation of molecular interactions and is a member of the IMEx consortium.
