Limited non-subscriber access is available for the following databases:
  • Literature Database (PRF/LITDB)
    "We select all articles dealing with peptides from scientific journals accessible in Japan. 'Peptides' here were mainly of 50 amino acids or fewer residues, but those of 50 to 100 amino acid residues have been included in Volume 14 in the year of 1988 and thereafter. Nevertheless biomedical articles dealing with TRH, GSH, insulin, captopril, IGF, antibiotics, enzyme substrates etc., are excluded since they are too many. Articles dealing with structural aspects of proteins and chemical aspects of receptors and processing enzymes of peptide hormones are cited regardless of the number of amino acid residues. Moreover, articles about antigenic sites, functional sites and active fragments of proteins are cited."
  • Peptide/Protein Sequence Database (PRF/SEQDB) [also called: Amino Acids Sequence Database (PRF/SEQDB)]
    "This database consists of amino acid sequrences of peptides and proteins, including sequences predicted from genes. You can also search literature in which the sequence is presented. Sequences not included in EMBL, GenBank and SwissProt are also found in PRF/SEQDB since it is constructed on the basis of all amino acid sequences of peptides and proteins reported in literature."
