This page provides help to the users of AntiTbPdb database on how to efficiently use this repository of antitubercular peptide. For each module which is implemented in AntiTbPdb, here we provide the figures and description on how to use that module. Four general modules are provided with the respective.
Simple search This module displays the simple search page of AntiTbPdb. Clicking on the required field will allow the user to browse the specific information in the database. The "select fields to be searched" section provides options for various keywords through which search can be made in AntiTbPdb. User can select fields to be displayed from the section "fields to be displayed". User can click on each antitb ID to get all the details about a entry. User can also click on each peptide to know information about that peptide.
BLAST Search Blast-Search page assists users in performing BLAST search against the peptides present in AntiTbPdb. User can submit their peptide with desired BLAST options for performing similarity, server will returns the BLAST output containing list of peptides similar to the query peptide.
Mapping Peptide Mapping module offers the user to run a sub-search and super-search. In sub-search a given peptide is mapped against all peptides of AntiTbPdb Database. While super-search returns similar peptides of our database against protein sequence given as query.
Q1. What is AntiTbPdb?
Ans. AntiTbPdb is an comprehensive manually curated repository of experimentally verified anti-tubercular or anti-mycobacterial peptides.
Q2. Why AntiTbPdb?
Ans. It comprising peptide entries from the literature available on Pubmed and patents. It will give all the information about the peptide associated peptides, like its sequence, modification, source, half life, length etc.This database will helpfull to identify and design antitubercular peptides.
Q3. How to search into AntiTbPdb?
Ans. A user can perform sequence or secondary structure-based searching to identify identical/similar entries present in all the peptide databases integrated in AntiTbPdb.
