Implementing Databases (2)
Mechanism, Annotation and Classification in Enzymes
MACiE is an electronic database of well-characterised enzymatic reactions. MACiE is the result of more than three years' collaboration between the Mitchell and Murray-Rust groups in the Unilever Centre and Prof. Janet Thornton at the European Bioinformatics Institute. The database contains the reaction mechanisms for 100 individual enzymes; this includes the overall reactions and the multiple steps that constitute them.

Sequence Function Linkage Database
Structure Function Linkage Database (SFLD) is a database of enzymes classified by linking sequences to chemical function. A heirachical systems is used to classify enzymes by family or superfamily other category levels include functional domain, subgroup and suprafamily.
