O-GLYCBASE: a revised database of O-glycosylated proteins

Nucleic Acids Res. 1996 Jan 1;24(1):248-52. doi: 10.1093/nar/24.1.248.


O-GLYCBASE is a comprehensive database of information on glycoproteins and their O-linked glycosylation sites. Entries are compiled and revised from the SWISS-PROT and PIR databases as well as directly from recently published reports. Nineteen percent of the entries extracted from the databases needed revision with respect to O-linked glycosylation. Entries include information about species, sequence, glycosylation site and glycan type, and are fully referenced. Sequence logos displaying the acceptor specificity for the GaINAc transferase are shown. A neural network method for prediction of mucin type O-glycosylation sites in mammalian glycoproteins exclusively from the primary sequence is made available by E-mail or WWW. The O-GLYCBASE database is also available electronically through our WWW server or by anonymous FTP.
