deprecated Catalytic Site Atlas


General Information
This record was deprecated on April 10, 2018 for the following reason(s): This resource is now obsolete and, together with MACiE (, has formed the basis of the M-CSA resource.

The Catalytic Site Atlas (CSA) is a database documenting enzyme active sites and catalytic residues in enzymes of 3D structure. It uses a defined classification for catalytic residues which includes only those residues thought to be directly involved in some aspect of the reaction catalysed by an enzyme.
