ready CutDB

General Information
CutDB is one of the first systematic efforts to build an easily accessible collection of documented proteolytic events for natural proteins in vivo or in vitro. A CutDB entry is defined by a unique combination of these three attributes: protease, protein substrate, and cleavage site. Currently, CutDB integrates 3,070 proteolytic events for 470 different proteases captured from public archives (such as MEROPS and HPRD) and publications.
