What is InterPro used for?

InterPro is used to provide annotation for UniProtKB

  • The sequences stored in the universal protein database UniProtKB are analysed regularly using InterPro. In this way, InterPro helps to provide annotation for uncharacterised sequences in the UniProtKB database (Figure 3).

InterPro can be used to analyse any protein sequence

  • Users can also choose to analyse their own sequences for predictions about their function and/or the presence of certain domains and sequence features.
