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.

Structure Function Linkage Database Archive
Structure Function Linkage Database (SFLD) is a database of enzymes classified by linking sequences to chemical function. A hierachical systems is used to classify enzymes by family or superfamily other category levels include functional domain, subgroup and suprafamily. The archive does not contain the interactive functionality found in the original SFLD, such as search capabilities. Instead, the archive is a static snapshot of the data in the SFLD as of April 2019, and will not be updated.
