O-GlycBase v6.00


Release notes

Note! The database itself has recently been updated to v6.00. Some of the information on this page may not yet have been changed accordingly.

O-GLYCBASE is a revised database of O- and C-glycosylated proteins.
Version 6.00 has 242 glycoprotein entries. The criteria for inclusion are at least one experimentally verified O- or C-glycosylation site. The terminal sugar linked to serine or threonine is cited when known. The database is non-redundant in the sense that it contains no identical sequences, unless there is conflicting glycosylation data. Mucins have tandem repeat sequences, which are O-glycosylated. This result in some redundancy of the O-glycosylation sites. For prediction purposes we have also included a version of the database which contains no identical O-glycosylation sites (window=9) called O-Unique.seq. This data set has been used as the training set of the netOglyc prediction server (Hansen et al. 1995).

Format of O-Unique.

This non-redundant database contains 53 entries only including mammalian mucin type glycoproteins. It contains 265 O-glycosylation sites.
First line contains sequence length - signalpeptide, database name, number of experimentally and predicted glycosylation sites eg. ( 17, 0) and glycoprotein name
Second line starts the sequence in one letter uppercase code. Below is given the assignment with the same notation as in O-GLYCBASE

Ex: 
   50 A29789  (pir) ( 17,  0)    mucin - sheep (fragment)
SSVPGESATPQQPGALSESTTQLPGVTGTSAVTGSEPGLPSTGVSGLPGT
SS....S.T.......S.STT.....T.TS..T.S.....ST..S....T

The leukosialins are cut into peptides marked (p1-4) as this is the only regions where the assignment can be performed. Including the rest of the sequences would introduce false negative sites. (See comments in O-GLYCBASE). This data set can be used for benchmark studies. It is identical to the data set used to train the neural networks used in the netOglyc prediction server (Hansen et al. 1995).
