Protein Spotlight: You want it darker
We are highly adaptable. We have been for the past few million years, and continue to be so on a daily basis. Whichever way you look at it, the art of adaptation really is just a way of preserving your integrity ... More.
September 2016 neXtProt release
We are pleased to announce that new variant phenotype data annotated by the neXtProt team has been integrated. New sequence variations arising either from mutagenesis or variants found in patients have been added. More

Protein Spotlight: A loosening of habits
We are not alone. From the day we are born, we carry with us hordes of microorganisms which, if all is going well, live off us while giving something in return. This micro-universe which is an integral part of our physiology ... More.
Protein Spotlight: Of plastic and men
Nature has extraordinary resources. Here we are trashing her land, sea and atmosphere - and have been for over a century now - with all sorts of chemistry she didn't ask for and which, sooner or later, will prove to be harmful .... More.

Protein Spotlight: On releasing tension
Like life, cells are subject to continuous change. Nothing in the vicinity of a cell remains still - unless death has interrupted its course. The same goes for the inside of each cell. All sorts of molecules are being shuttled.... More.

Protein Spotlight: The shape of harm
Sometimes we are forced to see things differently. But it is never easy because we are creatures of habit and, like it or not, shackled by what we were first led to believe. This is exactly what happened with the prion. .... More.

Protein Spotlight: A tighter mesh
A fabric whose weave is slack is less resistant to strain than one whose knit is close. These physical principles of toughness are followed by Nature all the way down the molecular scale.... More.

Protein Spotlight: The art of biocuration
Museums have their curators. Art galleries too. Their job is to look after collections they are knowledgeable about and present them to an audience in a way that makes sense and is informative. Biocurators do the same... More.

Protein Spotlight: Discerning change
Outside, clouds glide across the horizon. A man on the street below seems in a hurry. Two cars and a lorry drive past him. And a sparrow lands on the windowsill. None of this may seem particularly eventful to you... More.

Protein Spotlight: Shaping life
We take our shape for granted. As we do the contours of our eyes and the curves of our heart. But for everything to be sculpted the way Nature has found it best for us to be, cells need to know when to multiply... More.

Protein Spotlight: The smell of the sea
The chances a cloud will remind you of the ocean are slim. Yet without oceans, there would be fewer clouds drifting above our heads. This is because these huge stretches of sea are full of tiny creatures ... More
