MEROPS

The MEROPS database comprises proteolytic enzymes (also termed proteases, proteinases and peptidases), their substrates and inhibitors. MEROPS uses a hierarchical, structure-based classification of proteolytic enzymes and protein inhibitors. Each peptidase or inhibitor is assigned to a Family on the basis of statistically significant similarities in amino acid sequence, and families that are thought to be homologous are grouped together in a Clan.
