Enzymes Legend

Index:


BioMeta

Returns you to the home page of the BioMeta database.


Molecules

Brings you to the Molecules menu.


Reactions

Brings you to the Reactions menu.


Enzymes

Brings you to the Enzymes menu. Is inactive (and shown in red), because you are already there!


Sources

Brings you to the Sources menu.


Message area

The area were any message is shown (with error messages shown in red and others in blue).


Help

This hyperlink brings you to the clickable map with help texts on all items in the menu (which you are now reading).


Name

Allows you to search the synonyms of enzyme entries, which include common names, systematical names, and (sometimes) trade names. This is a text query option. Note that the fuzzy match flag determines whether matching is case-sensitive and takes non-alphanumeric characters into account.

When a hit is on display, moving the mouse pointer to the name will allow you to see all the synonyms.


Fuzzy match flag

This flag controls whether non-alphanumeric characters and case are taken into account with name (i.e., synonym) searches. If the flag is off, matching is case-sensitive and performed on all characters; if it is on, matching is incase-sensitive and performed only on alphanumeric characters (i.e., letters and digits).


Systematical name

Allows you to search the systematical names of enzyme entries. This is a text query option.


#

The database entry number. Included for sake of completeness, but not very useful as a query option unless you know entry numbers (which are not intended for identification of entries, unlike the ID strings). Note that only simple numbers can be used here, no ranges or relational operators.


ID

Allows you to search the ID strings of enzyme entries. This is a case-insensitive text query option.


EC number

Allows you to search the EC numbers of enzyme entries. This is a text query option. Since EC numbers don't contain letters, case-sensitiveness is not an issue here.


CAS registry number

Allows you to search the CAS registry numbers of enzyme entries. This is a text query option. Since CAS registry numbers don't contain letters, case-sensitiveness is not an issue here.


Internal links

Hyperlink(s) to the reactions (if any) that are catalyzed by the enzyme. This field is not searchable.


External links

Hyperlink(s) (keyed by the EC number) to the corresponding entries in the Enzyme section of the KEGG Ligand database, the IUBMB website, the Brenda database, the ExPaSy website, and the Ergo website. If the EC number contains dashes, only the link to IUBMB will be available. This field is not searchable.


Search

Submit the query with the query options filled in on the form. All query options are automatically combined in an "and" fashion.


Create

Allows to create a new entry. This option is inactive if you do not have the right to modify the database.


Delete

Allows to delete the current hit. This option is inactive if you do not have the right to modify the database.


Update

Allows to update the current hit. This option is inactive if you do not have the right to modify the database.


Clear

Clears the whole menu and redraws it as an empty input form.


First hit

Brings you to the first hit in the hit set. This option is inactive if the hit set contains just one hit.


Prev hit

Brings you to the previous hit in the hit set. This option is inactive if the hit set contains just one hit.


Next hit

Brings you to the next hit in the hit set. This option is inactive if the hit set contains just one hit.


Last hit

Brings you to the last hit in the hit set. This option is inactive if the hit set contains just one hit.


Goto hit

Brings you to a particular hit in the hit set. This option is active only if you are browsing a hit set with more than three hits. Just type a number in the input field to the right of the "Goto" button, and click on the "Goto" button.


Text query options

Text query options are string searches. They are case-sensitive unless indicated otherwise. Wildcards (using "*") can be used, e.g., "*ucos*phosphate".


Integer number query options

These query options are searches for integer values, allowing comparison and range specifications, e.g., "28", ">=0", "10-19", ">222", and "<=9". Real numbers are not allowed.


Real number query options

These query options are searches for real (floating-point) values, allowing comparison and range specifications, e.g., "3.14159", ">=0.0", "10.51-19.49", ">222.2", and "<=9". Integer numbers are allowed. Note that exponential notation is currently not implemented.
