ready KnotProt: A database of proteins with knots and slipknots


General Information
KnotProt collects information about proteins with knots or slipknots. The knotting complexity of proteins is presented in the form of a matrix diagram that shows users the knot type of the entire polypeptide chain and of each of its subchains. The database presents extensive information about the biological function of proteins with non-trivial knotting and enables users to analyze new structures.
